Cut the rough

Lost balls in the rough? Come on. Cut the rough or let us drive cart on at least rough. Worn out from walking when I paid for a cart. Should of brought my pull cart and would of walked less.

Always great to play where the Pro's play

Had the luxury to play a course where the pros play and it did not disappoint. Our group was very happy with everything at this great place. From the starter who was top notch all the to the finishing hole which is a beast. The course conditions were outstanding. The greens were so smooth and like glass and definitely difficult to read. ( Coolest thing ive seen having the green speed on the starters table) The rough was LUSH wow it was tough. The layout is really good. Front nine has some spots that maybe arent great but once you hit the back nine it doesnt disappoint. The Par 3s are definitely memorable . All of them require an extra club and all of a variety of challenges to massively uphill to huge bunkers and water. TPC Deere Run did not disappoint, for sure a course to cross off the bucket list.

Gem of the Area

Though the conditions of unusual heat this early in season tired me out the course was wonderful. I especially appreciated the water stations on several holes and greens were flawless. I play in Florida thru winter but still love to play JD TPC . For the price on Golf Now there is nothing that compares for value. Some golfers seem intimidated by degree of difficulty or wonderful surroundings, if so they need to go to country courses were they deposit balls in cornfields or ravines? Take your time and enjoy the day like I did.

Love This Course

The fact that this is a TPC course and an annual stop on the PGA tour tells you all you need to know.

I played an afternoon round for $60. GREAT DEAL.

I was a single, so I played in 3 hours. Ran into a couple of groups who were really friendly and just let me play through.

Every aspect of the course was in great shape. I played here last year right before the John Deere Classic and it was much easier this time as the rough and greens were meant for average golfers as opposed to last time when it was already in tournament shape.

The staff here is great and clearly act like they just want you to have a great time. Clubhouse is amazing.

The entire experience was awesome and for the price, you'd have a hard time finding a better course, maybe anywhere.

Play where the pros play

Played this course on a Saturday morning. Beautiful layout and very scenic views. We were playing behind another foursome whom we thought would be fast considering they hand a replay round in 5 hours. They had the entire course backed up. The ranger informed them to speed up which they did but the damage was done. The fairways and approaches were in good shape but we noticed the greens were marked up with quite a few divots. Overall a bit pricey for the conditions but a very nice course.

Deere Run Awesome

we had a buddies trip 16 guys to quad cities...and as expected tpc deere run was the highlight of the trip...36 holes on this gem and i want to go back next week to play again. conditions were absolutely perfect...smooth greens rolling prob 10.5 to 11 on the stimp..just immaculate putting surfaces. layout was fun yet challenging...such a nice change to see a fun yet fair test of golf with out buried elephants on every green. Our group could not stop talking about how much fun we had at deere run and how great of shape it was in...and this group included a couple guys who have played in US Ams and US Mid-ams. Highly recommend to ALL golfers have to play this course

Never again!!!!!!!

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!!!!!

Love It Always!

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.

Lightning Greens

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.

A Must Play in the MidWest

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.

Best value

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.

Very disappointed

Expected this to be the highlight of a 2 week Midwest golf trip. Ended up being the biggest disappointment. Started with no one at the bag drop (normally wouldn't bother me, but for $109 expect quality service).

The condition of the course is outstanding. The layout is good, clearly a notch above the standard "good" public course, but none of the holes really had a "wow" factor. Thought holes 9, 11 and 18 were poorly designed - maybe the pros like them, but not your average amateur,

Played with a member to make a 3-some. Played the first 14 holes in 2:45 as the first group off and then ran into the backend of a shotgun that had started on the back nine. 1:20 for the last 4 holes sent the member to the clubhouse early and us steaming while cooling our heels, especially since we were advised on the 1st tee to maintain a good pace. When we brought this up to a course advisor at the end of the round, he informed us that the problem was our fault "because we played too fast".

What a Great course

All I need to say is WOW! This was my first time playing TPC Deere Run. We played one week after this years John Deere Classic. They told us the rough hadn't been mowed since the tournament. This made the rough very thick. Greens were fast and rolled true. I think every hole on the course is a different look. I was so excited to play this course and my expectations were exceeded. Great layout, very challenging, lots of divots where the pros had been hitting from in the fairways, plays very fair but tough. There are so many picturesque places on the course. I will be back! I shot an 88. Had lots of pars, a couple birdies, and some big numbers. It is a course that doesn't let up but playable.

False front

When checking in at the desk I see a sign saying 90 degree rule. It's not that wet, but no problem. I get to the starter and he says cart path only. When I ask for a refund all I can get is a rain check. I'm 60 years old with a service related foot disability and can't walk the course. I'm also a single digit handicap that drove 4 hours and stayed overnight to play the course. Thanks for nothing TPC. I won't bother you again.

Absoltely the BEST

This course home of the PGA John Deere Classic is so amazing. The price is so cheap. At 100 dollars that includes 18 holes, range balls and cart. I play this course a few times a year. Especially a week before the JDC every year. there is nothing more fun than playing here when all the grandstands are setup. The course is so worth paying and traveling from Chicago to play. If you get into trouble, it can ruin the rest of your round very quickly. Happens to me most every time. But I dont care because the views, the greens, the fairways, the traps, the elevation changes and the range and everything else is immaculate all the time. Its a VERY tight course with tall trees and tight driving holes with many doglegs. I will recommend this course to anyone in the world and I ALWAYS look forward to getting out there as soon as the course opens. You can play many courses where the PGA plays for hundreds and hundreds of dollars. This for 100 dollars is the best deal I have ever seen and the best course I ever play. I love it. Its very hard for beginners though. You can lose many balls here and very fast with all the trees and OBs and water. The rough is very thick and this course plays very very long if you are not on your game. You have to get out there and play this course :) The Par 3 3rd hole rises from the tee so much you cant hardly see the pin. I vote that the best and toughest par 3 I have ever played. Not the longest hole but one of the best ever. The greens are very smooth and have so much break and speed. They play at tournament speeds at all times. Also tough sand shots with very deep bunkers.

TPC Deere Run

What a great course! It is certainly challenging enough to push your limits, but not to the point of making your round feel like survival. The fairways and tee boxes are excellent, the greens were in great shape, although slightly slower than expected. It was great seeing the holes and views I've seen over the years watching the John Deere Classic on TV. I especially enjoyed seeing the 14th, where Sticker made his miracle par from the 13th tee; and of course, the 18th green - I tried to recreate Spieth's bunker shot and lipped it out. This course is a long way from home, so I'm not sure I'll ever get another chance to play it; but if the opportunity arises, the $100 greens fee is well worth it.

Amazing experience!

Had the opportunity to play TPC Deere Run the week before the PGA Tour showed up for the John Deere Classic! The course was immaculate, the layout is extremely fun and very challenging! Staff was very friendly. You certainly get what you pay for at TPC Deere Run. Fast greens, well-manicured fairways, great practice facilities, and excellent overall accomodations. There are some pretty amazing views of this golf course and I am pretty sure TPC Deere Run will be an annual trip!

TPC - Deere Run

The Good: Fabulous parkland layout from native son D.A. Weibring is the premier course in the Davenport, Iowa market. Superb track has a "Northern Michigan" feel that meanders adjacent to the Rock River, features ample fairways guarded by beautiful sand traps, moderate elevation for Midwest, and large tricky greens. Strong variety in Par 4's, great Par 5's, and one spectacular Par 3. PGA tour level course conditions and excellent greens. Top-notch clubhouse with full restaurant and bar, superb practice facilities, and good on-course amenities. Nice staff and great pace of play for a public course. One of the better sub $100 courses in the Midwest. The Bad: Lack of GPS on carts is a bummer. Course is often cart path only which impacts overall experience. Outside of #16, the Par 3's are relatively forgettable. Limited variation in rates and no online specials. The Verdict: TPC Deere Run is a Top 3 public course in the state and becoming a destination course in the Midwest. Absolutely worthy of a PGA tour event, but a third of the cost of most championship courses. Best Hole(s): The short Par 3 16th with the Rock River just left is mesmerizing. The Par 5 2nd is an underrated, beautiful hole that is one of the few birdies to be made.

AWESOME COURSE!

This is the best course I have EVER played. Home of the John Deere Classic every July, this course is WELL WORTH the money!!!!!!! Its VERY inexpensive for such a beautiful, tough and LONG golf course! I play there about 4 or 5 times a year. The fairways are as smooth as a counter top and greens are smooth as glass and fast. I would play this course every day of my life if I could. The terrain changes and rolling hills along the Rock River are amazing and make this course very difficult. Playing over 7200 yards from the back tees, my best score there is a 91. The sand traps are very deep. Some over 15 feet deep and tough to get out of. VERY very very narrow fairways but large greens. Greens break a lot and lightning fast. I cant say enough how great this course is. DEFINITELY worth the drive and money! The issue is stay in your game. If you mess up on 1 hole at all, it throws you off because the next hole is harder. Its just an awesome course. Best I ever played. Only 99 dollars too. That includes golf, range balls and cart. Some days that will also include food. I would not recommend walking unless you have a caddy. The terrain changes are VERY VERY extreme!
