Tpc At Deere Run

  17 Reviews

Being just 1 of a few select PGA Tour courses for the public to play, this course is amazing and challenging. The ONLY complaint I have the last couple years is the price. It used to be 99 dollars no matter what day or time you play. Now its gone up and changes with the times. Its definitely worth the price but I cant afford to play it as much as I used to anymore. But the staff is awesome and the course is always in great shape anytime of year. I highly recommend this course. The pace of play is always great when I play. When you have 2-3 groups on the first tee, you get concerned of backups. However by the 2nd or 3rd hole, theres usually a hole between groups. Spread out nicely also for those who cant hit it straight all the time. No need to fear hitting into other people. All in all, this is the best course I have ever played and I played it often. The best time I recommend is 2 weeks before the John Deere Classic when all the stands are up. Its so much fun. Have fun and take a lot of photos.

Course was cart path only due to an inch of rain overnight (according to the starter). If the course can't handle an inch of rain, they should think about some better drainage. Maybe the first four or five holes, but the fairways were firm after that. There was no reason the 90 degree rule and rough was not put in effect after that. Absolutely the worst experience at TPC Deere Run in the last 13 years I've been playing here!!!

The marshal's did not even adjust the playing time and still hounded our groups at every chance they could. My 70 year old father-in-law quit playing after the 4th hole.

If TPC Deere Run is so worried about letting public golfers on the course after a little rain, then make it private.

As for the food/beverage prices....holy cow!!!! $7.25 for a hot dog, $4.25 for a powerade and $25 for a six pack of domestic beer!!!!!!! Talk about sticking it to the golfer, again see making private above.

I even cancelled tee times for an annual trip up there in July!!!! And to let it be known, they didn't even blink an eye at losing the $1,080 in green fees plus food and beverage money....again see comment above about making private.

In summary, seems like the public golfer is second class citizen to them, make it private!!!!!

This is not the first PGA Tour or TPC course I've played. But these were the fastest greens I ever played. They were receptive, but they were bikini wax smooth and fast. New found respect for the pros who can leave the ball close on some of those downhill putts.

The course is in great shape, and is a fun design. Some of the chipping areas are extremely deep an challenging if you find yourself just off the green. The fairways are forgiving, but if you spray - you pay. The front 9 was a bit easier than the back in my opinion. The starter said everything plays about 1/2 of a club longer than usual, and he was right.

I was surprised that it was not that busy. The price is a bit of a premium, but you pay for the experience. It's well worth a go if you find yourself in the area.

TPC Deere Run is a must play course in the Quad Cities region. Although the $135.00 price tag is a bit steep, you do not have the opportunity to play at a course that the pros play for that price. The course is challenging, but not to the point of frustration (if you play from the right tees - ask Pete the friendly starter for his recommendation based on your handicap!! The cart personnel and all staff were fantastic, especially when thunderstorms halted the round for about an hour. The clubhouse/pro shop/restaurant is second to none - fantastic facilities. As I said before, a must play.

This may be the best value play in the Midwest, and maybe the country. What a gem in the Quad Cities. I would easily put this in my top 10 favorite courses I've played. So many memorable holes, and not just the ones you see on TV during the John Deere Classic. The early holes set the tone and there is never a lull, which to me is the great challenge in designing a course. The short par-4 14th is one of my most favorite holes I've ever played. The tee shot is dynamic. Also loved the par-3 16th and the confluence of fairways on 17 and 18. There just didn't seem like enough room to fit the tee ball into the 18th fairway! Excellent practice facilities, as you would expect at a TPC course.
