About

Holes 18
Type Public
Par 71
Length 6510 yards
Slope 131
Rating 72.0

Tanna Farms Golf Club in Geneva offers some of the best golf that the Fox Valley has to offer. The layout meanders across prairies covered with wildflowers and weaves through lush wetlands. The course begins with the stunning signature hole. The par-3 opener has an island green that sets the scene for this thrilling and memorable round. Although it's a seemingly short course at 6,510 yards from the back tees, what it lacks in length it makes up for with plenty of other challenges. Besides the first hole, there are a few other tough par 3s, including one with a postage-stamp sized green. There are some daunting par 5s as well. Tanna Farms Golf Club is not a lengthy course but the layout is generously spaced to offer breathing room between the holes and the undulating slopes and subtle elevation changes make it pay much longer.

Horrible

I’ve never played a course as badly maintained as I did yesterday. Who fills fairway bunkers with plugs from aerating? Saw cart girl twice all round and on the worst holes possible. DO NOT EVEN THINK ABOUT THIS COURSE!!

Course conditions not too good

Course was clearly under fall repair and pretty rough. Tee boxes were chopped up as were some fairways. Had problems with finding some holes as layout is kind of funny and lots of distance between holes in some cases. No GPS on carts. My personal GPS had major distance discrepancies in some places. No restaurant/bar etc. to het anything (machines only).
Challenging 18 but map on card is less than helpful as to where to land ball on fairway..

Overall worth it

I like Tanna Farms. The layout is good and its maintained well, with the exception of the bunkers, which are more dirt than sand and the cart paths are in need of some work, as there are lots of big bumps in some areas. But it's a course I am sure to visit again.

A fun course that winds through a subdivision; there are numerous wetland areas that are challenging to players that don't have long ball capability. This season, they weren't able to secure a vendor for the restaurant-bar, limiting 19th hole relaxation.

Bare Minimum

Upon arriving you will find the restaurant and bathrooms are closed. There is no food, beverage cart is cash only and on top of that there is no water on the corse at all. Greens were beat up. I can tell this could be a nice course but they do nothing to make the experience good for the golfer. They offer the bare minimum.

Ehhhhhh….

Pros:
-well places hazards and interesting dead zones make shot selection/decision making a challenge
-friendly staff
-generally good condition
-nice hole descriptions on the scorecard
-reasonable price
Cons:
-entire course is lined with houses, some incredibly close to the fairway or rough negating decent shots as OB
-weird sequencing, 6 par 3s that’re all very similar
-pace got rough on the back 9, it’s far more difficult and slowed all groups down significantly
- literally houses and yards within feet of you at all times…not the peaceful escape, quiet, and scenic landscape of courses in the area and price range. Depressing suburban vistas instead of nature.
-no halfway house
-encountered beverage cart once in 18 holes
-ran out of hotdogs
-clubhouse has a single toilet. Golfers “clearing their systems” all in a row pre-morning round and took a lot of time and was rough on the senses to say the least
-hardly any trees, but not a links style course
-somewhat repetitive in design with mid fairway hazards, repeated yardages, and similar club selection. Used probably 5 clubs in 18 holes.

Overall decent, but not worth the hour drive from Chicago. If I can as closer I’m sure I’d play it again but can’t say if seek it out unless you’re under 20-30 minutes away.
