The John Deere Classic is played annually in July, the week before the British Open Championship, at the TPC at Deere Run in Silvis, Illinois.
This Golf Classic is an American professional golf event which is on the PGA Tour schedule.
The John Deere Classic made its PGA Tour debut as the Quad Cities Open in 1971. "Quad Cities" is the term applied to a group of five cities adjacent to the Mississippi River in Iowa and Illinois. Yes, the "quad" is made up of the following five cities of Davenport and Bettendorf in Iowa, and Moline, East Moline, and Rock Island in Illinois.
TPC Deere Run
TPC Deere Run, which opened in 2000, is the annual site of the John Deere Classic. The TPC Deere Run is a majestic golf course along the Rock River, in Silvis, Illinois. This Golf facility is one of the TOUR's most enjoyable tests for the players. The course was designed by a former TOUR player and local favorite D.A. Weibring. Obviously, he brings a great knowledge of the area and a good idea of what tests golfers at the highest levels.
TPC Deere Run features tree-lined fairways, several dramatic elevation changes and breathtaking views of the Rock River. It will be a stern 7,080-yard test for professional golfers from the championship tees, which stretches to 7,213 yards, an intimidating length for a par-71 track. Some 70 bunkers are strategically placed throughout the course and vary in depth and shape. There are even a few blind shots.
There are chipping areas to confound the best players. There are gentle doglegs, requiring precision more than power. TPC Deere Run is not a target-oriented layout. It requires shot making and maneuverability, plus imagination with the short game.
