TPC Deere Run"Our goal was to build an old-style, traditional golf course and I think we've captured that," says D.A. Weibring, PGA TOUR course designer and three-time champion of the Quad Cities tournament. "We wanted to create a course that had memorable holes with dramatic views of the rolling hills and vistas."
"My wife's reaction really embodies what we were hoping for - Kristy said she had a feeling of anticipation, of wondering what was coming next. She said each hole looked like another postcard."
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.
HistoryLong before golfers began traveling to the gorgeous land now called TPC Deere Run, native Americans migrated there. They came to this western Illinois location for the bounty of wildlife, the proximity to the Rock River and for the natural beauty of rolling hills and wooded ravines.
Still today, visitors might see deer, birds or other wildlife that would have provided hunting opportunities for the native Americans hundreds of years ago.
In more recent times, the property became Friendship Farm, one of the top Arabian horse breeding operations in the U.S. As a result, the property was maintained in its most natural beauty and provided a near perfect setting for the property's destination today, a fine golf course that appears to have been here since, perhaps, native Americans called this area home.
