Tanna Farms Golf Club
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.

Tanna Farms Review
Nice course and a little tight on some holes do a straight ball is a must.
First round 2021
Golfing in March in Illinois is a treat for the golfer but not for the golf course. Us golfers have been pent up all winter waiting to knock the ball around the course! But the courses aren’t ready. Still wet and spongy in a lot of places. With standing water in areas. Sand traps packed down like concrete. No manicured greens. But I got out with friends, enjoyed the fresh air!
The greens were air rated and rough and the fairways had numerous divots.
Be prepared for a slow round
Course uses no on course monitors so play is almost always slow. Course is in decent condition but greens and bunkers were in poor condition.
Some greens and fairways had bare spots or areas. People obviously not replacing divots or repairing ball marks on the greens. Nice layout and fun course to play with some easier holes and some challenging holes. They have cut down marsh areas (high) grasses and weeds and course looks very different, but nice affect. Recent aireation of greens made for some tricky putting. Pace was pretty good with mix of twosomes and foursomes. Recommend Tanna Farms Golf.
Tell us the greens were aerated when booking.
What can I say other than the greens were hot bad they were horrible. Never saw putts bounce this bad. I know this is the time of year to aerate, but at least roll them so it somewhat resembles a green!
Wet and wild
This run is very challenging so you better bring your "A" game. The sand traps and water can eat you up if you are errant with your shot making. Unfortunately we played a day after a 3" rainfall the night before so all the sand traps were unplayable (many under water) and some fairways were soggy with standing water. The greens had also recently been aerated, making putting very difficult and actually unfair as balls were diverted by the "swiss cheese" hole patterns. I would not play this course again in the fall after aeration since its difficult enough without bad greens.
