I love playing the Links of Novi. The course is always well maintained. I normally play afternoons and twilight, but this time played a morning tee time. The price was fair. The only complaint was the pace of play. There were two foursomes ahead of us playing painfully slow. We were able to play through one group but not until about hole 15. When we finally played up on the other group, they were oblivious the situation. We didn’t see a ranger the entire 18 to keep pace. Enjoyed the golf, but didn’t like the 5.25 hour round.

Course and layout/conditions are very good. However, over 90 degree temperature and no water on course. No beverage cart either. Poor for a hot day.

Our foursome of women played at a good pace and often found ourselves waiting for the guys in front of us. The ranger told US to pick up our play, not the men. Greens are tough, fairways pretty much wide open. The clubhouse staff and beverage cart gals were fabulous, but I'll never set foot near this course again because of the way we were discriminated against as to our pace of play. I know slow play & we weren't it!

Links of Novi was in GREAT shape that day -- tees, fairways, greens, and traps. It would have been a very enjoyable round had the pace of play not been SO bad. It took us 5:10 for our threesome to complete play. The root cause as a foursome in three carts who found themselves two holes back after five holes on the back side. While I did see rangers a few times on the day, it boggles my mind that they did nothing to remedy the situation. I'd like to think it was a one-time thing. I do plan to play there again some time.

I have played this course a few times and I keep coming back because it is challenging for me. It is a shorter course but the hills and the traps keep you on your game. The course is always kept in perfect condition. I can't wait until I play here again.

Beautiful course. Terrible experience based on pace of play. I arrived at course 30 minutes before tee time, checked in and was told we could go out as we wish, wide open. Waited until tee time as foursome teed off just as I arrived. Caught them on third hole. Very slow and group ahead could not get more than 100-150 off tee. Drove up to 5th tee and group was just leaving tee. One of players in group said they were last of 4 foursomes together. I asked if that gave them ok to play slow! Entire hole open in front of them. Watched them struggle for next 4 holes and finally left after nine. Will probably give one more chance as conditions were great for this time of year!

Early Spring golf in Michigan is always a gamble ..on this day it there was a 1 to 2 club wind hat had to be taken into account. I have played this course in several outings over the years so I was a bit familiar with the layout. We played west to east since it is a course with 3 nine hole courses. The guys in the clubhouse and the starter were very cordial and friendly. The conditions were excellent!! the greens were FAST and rolled well. Even though it has been a bit wet this season...I was amazed that balls that hit the green on the fly did not leave any kind of ball mark. The greens were hard and fast but somehow the shots at this time did not just bounce off. Also the traps had NICE sand and were great to hit out of on the periodic errant shot.Hope they continue to keep ths course in this kind of condition as I hope to golf there again

For $25 on a 70 degree Sunday at noon, cannot be beat. Play this course often as it's one of my go to spots. Only issue is this time it took six hours to play! Too many waiting stops along holes, slow play, maybe overbooked? And it always seems I play the east to west course; south course I hardly get a chance to. Still will return again and again, as long as there are deals for it on GolfNow. Otherwise I'm not going to pay $40 or more to play it.

This is a great course, and boy it is challenging! Getting to greens will be tough, once on the green you wont be overly fooled. The grass was perfectly cut, the greens were true, and the staff was super nice. This is a course made for the advanced golfer no doubt! The par 3's offer little relief at close to 200yrds (white tees) so be ready to throw some darts!!
