The golf course at the Union Hills Country Club is a championship course with a traditional layout. The course has been named one of the Top Ten Private Courses in Arizona. The design features four lakes and two winding creeks that create water hazards that come into play on a few holes. There are also several sand bunkers present. Some of the golf course's greens are elevated and the fairways are average sized in width. The signature hole is the par-4 14th hole, which requires a carry over water. Union Hills Country Club also has a putting green and full driving range for golfers to use.

Got an early tee time & played with other gentlemen Pace of play was Fairways in reasonable shape rough was high in some spots but was inconsistent One thing that bothered me is the lack of course politeness by the ground crew They would not stop working or running their machines when we were getting ready to tee off. Almost hit one guy who was working on a sprinkler in the fairway. This type of behavior takes away from one's concentration & play. Green were in nice shape but are a bit slower then they should be. This course could be amazing with a little work and education of the on course staff.

The course is in decent shape for this time of year. Greens were a bit slow due to a large storm the night before so they could not cut them. A bit patchy in places but overall not bad.

Course in poor condition; greens and fairways.

Lots of dead grass and no grass on most fairways. Very disappointed as I have played here many times.

Tee boxes also in bad shape!

played this course late morning, not much activity, but in fairness this course was really not in good shape. maybe because was 115 out, but the fairways were VERY spotty, with weeds, dead spots and just not in good shape. a player joined me at the turn, his comment was the greens appeared to be mowed as fairways. the gentleman behind the counter was nice and friendly but he should make a point of informing outside players of the location of restrooms and drinking areas.

Pro shop made me feel guilty for booking through Golf Now. The pro in shop told me that Golf Now greens fees are at a giveaway type price. I felt like telling him, did Golf Now force you to contract with them so you lose money when guys like me book a round thru your course. For an average course with an empty parking lot , he should have never complained about Golf Now people taking advantage of them. I will think twice before booking thru this course again. When I play the other Sun City Courses , they are more than happy to have me there (North, South, Riverview, and Willow Creek).

Greens were average (recently aerated). Fairways were overall good with only a few bad spots here and there. Pro Shop and other staff were very courteous and helpful. They even put your name on an assigned cart when you get there. Nice time to place this course since snow birds have flown the coup and pace of play is excellent.

This is an average golf course for the area. I had never played it and there was a great price so......

It is flat. Houses surround every hole. Greens were 7.5 or so. Condition was good+. Good for the money but probably won't go out of my way to play it again.
