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.

Great Memorial Day round
Course was in great condition. Really nice course tucked away in the suburbs.
I’m being generous with pace of play since it was holiday and a lot of non golfers were on the course. The course typically plays well and you see non golfers leave after 9.
The staff in the clubhouse was super friendly. We teed off on a Thursday at 4:50 pm and it wasn’t busy it all. There was no one in front or behind us which was really nice.
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.
This is an odd course - starts off with a short par 3 over water. The course itself is not overly difficult and there is some picturesque scenery. My only big complaint is that the course has been poorly maintained over the years. Cart paths are mostly paved, but have deteriorated to the point that they are bubbling up and falling apart. Neither the greens or the fairways have been well kept. Divots, dead grass and unrepaired ball marks are the norm. In addition, the sand traps are more like gravel pits or hard packed clay. The course has potential, but has been neglected for too long.
