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.

Can't beat the price!

I have golfed at tanna farms multiple times and each time I fall more and more in love with it. Where else can you play a full 18 holes where every hole gives you a different look.?! The price is right for this beautiful 18 hole course and I will definitely be back again. The only thing this course is lacking is a practice range and green. If you have a chance to play here, DO IT, and ask about their membership fees. CANT BEAT THEIR OFFER!!

Nice Course in Geneva

Course was in very good shape for August when some courses are dried out. Great value on golfnow.com. Staff was great. Needed a ranger to help pace on the back nine. Food was excellent on the 19th.

Not a course for a beginner or average golfer

Almost every hole was unbelievably challenging. With a lot of water/tall cattails and a lot of sand-traps! My high school and wife gave up after 13 holes. I have never lost so many golf balls on a course in my life! This was not a fun outing and a waste of over $100 for the 3 of us! We will very play this course again!!

Great course for the money

I expected a very long round, seeing as it was 4th of July weekend, but we pretty much had the place to ourselves. I have played this course a few times before and always thought it was challenging, especially the 1st hole. We went at our own pace and had a very nice day. The weather was great and the course was in excellent condition.

I don't typically play "farms" courses

I typically don't play "Farms" courses due to past bad experiences. This was a great course and it had some great variety to it. Starts out with a fun Par 3 which is atypical. Recent floods made holes 10-14 very soggy but neighboring courses were closed so that says something about their drainage. I'd play here again. Pace of play is supposed to be sub 4 hours. Took us 4:20 due to several 4-somes booked back to back. Overall a great value with a great attentive cart girl, which is most important.

Rude staff

Old guys in the clubhouse are extremely rude. Would recommend playing somewhere else. This course doesn't act like they want your business.

Nice change

Coming from the desert and playing mostly Bermuda grass greens and fairways. Staff super friendly and even provided us 3 new rental sets. Only complaint would be lack of yardage markers. Take your rangefinder and enjoy a great track on a farm!!

Course in great condition

Great value and nice layout. Only real problem or issue is the 2 par 3's in the first 3 holes. Kinda strange.

Loosing Business

Course does not allow people to book as singles through Golf Now. A lot of times I just want to go somewhere by myself and play during the day on a moments notice. I don't mind being paired up with others but when I can't book as a single that's not an option.

Decent shape for early in the year

Tanna Farms was enjoyable and not to crowded this past Saturday. A tad wet and windy but that's to be expected. 8 thru 16 were cart path only. Greens were okay....a tad bumpy but playable. 3.5 stars....course does not have a driving range and can slow to a crawl in the middle of round when it's busy because there are a lot of water hazards and shorter holes. One of the few Chicago area courses where you go out and do not come back to the clubhouse until the 18th. Always a good play once or twice a year.

Decent course

For the price you can't go wrong. I normally shoot in the mid 80's and would consider this a decent course. A lot of the par 3s are not very challenging though (2 of them I used my sandwedge on).

Unique, fun, and challenging

Have to start out with what a deal it is. First thing you'll notice is that there is no driving range. This is not a high end course and that's okay! The course layout snakes through a couple of subdivisions featuring 4 par 3s on the front nine alone. Back nine has some more traditional long holes although with interesting bunker and water positioning. I really liked the layout as it require using all your clubs well. Challenging. The terrain is undulating leaving you wth a couple holes where you're shooting blind. Fun. Course was wet and in places, soggy, even though it had been a few days since it last rained. Lots of skeeters in the rough. I will be back and would recommend to all levels.
