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.

Bad experience!!

I have played on many courses throughout the United States in my 67 years, but this course ranks with some of the worst courses I have ever played. The fairways were in very bad condition, several of the greens had some kind of fungus. The cart path was very rough, a real kidney slammer. The staff was rude and very unprofessional. I would not play that course again if they gave me a free round every time I was there !

Excellent deal for a challenging, well groomed course. A few of the bunkers were pretty rough but generally was in excellent condition.

Would play again

This course has a tough layout. It was very windy which made the par 3’s play very long. Greens were very fast. Overall nice course will play again.

Nice day - Overall has issues

Refer to my reviews of 5/28/18 and 4/27/17 for a lot of info. Tanna is in decent shape given the extreme amount of rain the area has received to start the season. It's a quirky course that doesn't back to the clubhouse after the 9th with virtually nil facilities. Was told a "soft open" for the the season with only 3 cruddy domestic types of beer stocked probably left over from last season? At least they had a nurse on course but she had little to sell. Come on. Porta Potties still the norm.....a postage stamp practice putting green. Observed deteriorating course conditions over the last several years. Greens are so so at best which is unfortunate.....and I'm being kind. Traps have always been hit or miss. Tee to green is acceptable. The par 5 15th has turned into a hideous amphitheater of huge 400k plus really ugly homes surrounding the green featuring yapping dogs, cornucopia of lawn mover noise and yes kids setting off firecrackers. Owned by the same folks as nearby Mill Creek which did have decent overall facilities (range and even a par 3 course) you would have thought they'd pay more attention to Mill Creek (a better track) but they closed it this season.....observed Mill Creek at least getting mowed. It's difficult for me to recommend Tanna. A course I'd play once a year but with virtually no warm up available that's about it.....too many issues at Tanna which continue (3 stars previous - now 2.5 stars). Hope these owners wake up and improve/reopen Mill Creek. $30 value at most.

Solid track

Always in great condition. Only one questionable hole. Great staff. No cart GPS, which impedes some shot selection. Big fan of Tanna Farms
