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.

Course was challenging

The staff was very friendly and the course was in very good shape. If I had one complaint it would be that the cart I used was not in the best condition. Other than that I would consider playing at Tanna farms in the future.

Poor layout and no idea where to hit shots (can’t see)

Course was in decent shape for late October. Course layout is terrible and the par 3s are around 121-127yds from blue tees (too short IMO). Many holes you cannot see where to drive the ball or make a smart play on approach. Visibility of greens and fairways is really poor.

Challenging Course

Despite the weird layout of having the 1st hole a par 3 island green and no practice range the layout was very interesting.
Some tight fairways and a couple of doglegs have you thinking about club selection a little more then on auto pilot. The greens were fast and generally well maintained. Great scenery, and a nice winding trail from green to the next tee box. Local course knowledge is a big help to score well, but the entire round was a real treat.

Good Track, reasonably maintained, Friendly Staff

It rained heavily the night before and the course was VERY wet. Carts were allowed only on paths. But the problem is cart paths are in VERY BAD SHAPE. In addition, the paths are quite far from fairways and greens, so I ended up walking a lot. I got the benefit of walking by riding!!! All the bunkers had standing water.

Virtually no practice facility. A postage stamp putting green, which is of no much use. They could at least put a net for hitting some balls before teeing off.

Unfriendly groundskeepers

My playing partner and I encountered an extremely rude groundskeeper who forced us to hit into the group ahead of us. Apparently this person is known for antics like this and it surprises me he is still employed given his actions and unprofessional nature. Also, my playing partner and I ran into another groundskeeper who needed to change the pin placement as we were on the green. Shouldn’t that occur well in advance of players on the course??

He course is laid out well, but could be maintained a bit better given the price/round.

Nice course

I like the course challenges. The greens are fast yet very receptive to holding approach shots. The distances are not too long (I played the blue tees) but require accuracy off the tee on most holes. The price I found on line was a great deal.

Can’t see.

Overall the course has a nice design. Each hole is laid out totally different from the prior. Which is good. Most of the sand traps are groomed nicely. However, there are a couple holes on the back nine that have very tall grasses ahead of the tee box and you are unable to see where to hit. Unless you play their frequently, it is impossible to find the correct direction. Very frustrating. Other than that, this is a fun, challenging course.
