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.

great long course

Love this course. If you need a long course to challenge your game. Here it is. With 4 sets of tee boxes black playing over 6500yds.
Each hole has its challenges, tight fairways, water and natural hazards.
Errant golfers should play it short as not to kill any of the residents that this course wraps around.
Oh and don't be too intimadated by the first hole par 3 island green. Lol

Nice Course but not GolfNow Friendly

The course is great. It was rough this time, but it's mid-February . I have played it mid summer and it's always in good condition. There's a nice mix of holes.

Great Course

We had a great time at Tanna Farms. Great customer service from the Pro Shop, cart girl and restaurant after our round. We loved the course (although we lost a few balls in the high "weeds" and wet lands. Wasn't ready for the Par 3 Island Green on the 1st hole . . . would have loved to see it later in the course.
We will be back!!!

Good course nice round

Very interesting lay-out. Staff was very friendly, let us go out in advance of tee time since course was not crowded. Will certainly be back, I think I could score better with some advance knowledge of course(you cannot always hit driver for example). Great pace, I love it when people put the clubs away for October. Played 18 in three hours flat.

Very playable course

First time playing this course. Conditions were very good, greens were on faster side. Nice mix of shorter, strategic holes and long par 5's. Nice mix of par 3's. We played 18 in just over 3 hours on an overcast day, with few people playing.

Course runs through housing so the routing is a bit odd at times. Couple of really long walks between holes.

Nice bar for after round drink

6 par 3 holes and 5 par 5's - a few of the par 5's long and tough. Nice layout in excellent shape. Only criticism I could find is that there is no practice facility

Fun day

The course was a bit sloppy. Greens and fairways were beat up a bit. Pace was great until a group spent 20+ minutes on the last 4 holes. Very friendly employees. Overall it's a great place to play

Pump the water out the sand traps please!!

Tanna Farms is a decently maintained track that suffers from a lack of flow to the course with a short par 34 front. With no driving range to warm up (Mill Creek is nearby) the course begins with an island green par 3 test which virtually guarantees to wreck a scorecard immediately if you don't hit a quality iron from the get go. Driving distance between several of the greens to next tee gets old. If you're an average player do yourself a big favor and play the white tees at this course (5437/119 slope). If you don't from the blue tees (6033/126 slope) you'll be challenged with several very difficult driving holes requiring at least a 175 plus plus carry to the fairway....and two extremely brawny back nine par 5's of over 570 yards each.....back nine plays almost 3400 yards, par 37. Your driver better be on from the blues otherwise you're in for a very long day. Several approach shots to greens are uphill (it doesn't look like it) and taking an extra club and going over the green is normally far better than short of the putting surfaces. 3.5 stars.....the sand traps were terrible and our group lost a few balls in the temporary ponds in the sand traps.....otherwise in decent shape.

Tough Back 9

Played on a Monday and the course was in great condition after weekend play. I love the layout, and the back 9 offers challenging golf. Played the front in 1.5 hours with a nice pace. The back played in 3 hours due to a slow threesome. Need a ranger to speed pace of play. I love the course.

Pace was awful

I know you can't expect much on a Sunday, but we teed off around 930, played the front in 2 hours, and then participated in a death march of over 3 hours on the back nine. There were 3 groups at the tee on every hole and it was the slowest 9 I've ever had. During this whole time, not once did a ranger come around and try to mitigate the situation. Staff didn't say much of anything before or after the round, not very welcoming or friendly, but not unfriendly. I enjoyed the course for the most part, it is a fun, yet challenging layout; however, I could not enjoy the back nine.

Interesting course

The front 9 and back 9 are completly different. The front 9 is interesting with a lot of par 3s that have many water hazards. The back is much longer, and still lots of hazards. You have to pay attention to what you are doing at this course or you can get into trouble. The only negative is that you never go back to the clubhouse, and you dirve forever.

Interesting layout, poor condition

Played TF for the 1st time after finding a good rate on Golfnow, glad we got it cheap. My biggest complaint is the condition of the course, especially the traps. They were unplayable. Most were full of water with very little sand in them. This seems to be a trait with Golfvisions managed courses as Nettle Creek traps are brutal also. The fairways were ok at best and the greens were pretty beat up. This is somewhat understandable in the dog days of Summer, but I've played on much better greens that have been subjected to the same typical Illinois summer weather. The odd layout of Tanna has been well covered on this site so I won't repeat it. There are some really cool holes at Tanna and if it was properly cared for it would be a fun place to play a few times per season. No driving range and a tiny putting area don't serve golfers well either. Staff was friendly and beverage cart came around frequently. No issues with pace of play, a typical 4 hour round.
