There wasn’t a lot of golfers. So my son and I took our time. We still finished under 4 hours. The course was in good shape. Always liked playing here. No complaints

I’d say my experience at the Links of Novi was really good. I’ve played several times and have enjoyed all 3 courses. Greens roll great and true. Good course if you can find that deal.

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.

Course is in good shape. Friendly staff. Very quick greens, fastest public I've played in the area, that may be a bit dry due to lack of rain.

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.
