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.

Staff was unfriendly when calling into the pro shop as well as while paying for the round. They just could seem to figure out how to use a pre-purchased gift card.

Greens were not in good shape at all.

No place to warm up before starting the round.

The restaurant was closed when we finished our round.

I've always been a fan of Tanna Farms. A fun layout with a good mix of holes. Front 9 is shorter and more narrow; back 9 is long and most holes are usually into the wind. Surprised at how wet it was in certain spots since it hasn't rained in forever here. There was hardly anyone out there so pace was great. I think they are perfectly priced for the value and location.

Played for first time. Very nice staff, easy to get time and good value. Course far better condition than neighboring mill creek which is in terrible shape. Odd layout to holes, but still fun. Great views. Front nine better configuration. Will play again.

We got a hot deal so we thought we would try this course that we had never played before. Enjoyed the round although we had one of the slowest twosomes we've seen in front of us. We were a foursome and had to wait for them on every hole with no one in front of them. Finally, when they stopped to watch the ellipse, we played through. The course is unusual with 6 par 3's and 5 par 5's and water on 14 of the 18 holes. You probably have to ride because there is a long distance between some holes. Nice layout!!

1st- Don't even think of walking this course if given the opportunity. 2nd- you never go back to the clubhouse after the 1st hole. The cart lady we didn't see until 930am., we teed off at 7. 3rd, if you don't hit it straight, bring balls, because you will lose some. This was an enjoyable round, we played on a Sunday in 3:50, and waited on 12 of 18 holes. 6 par 3s, but some pretty long par 5s. You can score very very well if you're a low handicap, but it will be challenging for the average golfer like me. 90% of the course is very well maintained- but that 10% really needs some love. $47 is a little pricey for this course, if you can get it for under $35 its a bargain , take it!

This course really makes you keep the driver in the bag and make smart shots off the tee. Plays quickly. The only downside is that some of the greens are burnt up. The friendliness of the staff more than makes up for this. I'd play again soon
