TPC at Deere Run is a Semi-Private 18 hole golf course located in Silvis, Illinois.
TPC at Deere Run first opened for play in 2000. The course was designed by D. A. Weibring.
TPC Deere Run, is the annual site of the John Deere Classic.
What makes the golf course deserving of praise is in its attention to detail as well as a forthright presentation laden with options.
Though a new layout, Weibring instilled a bit of old-time philosophy and feel to the golf course, which stretches to 7,183 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 a few blind shots. There are chipping areas to confound the best players. There are gentle doglegs, requiring precision more than power.
What's more, the natural features of the former horse farm high above the Rock River Valley have not been compromised.
The Rock River is visible on nine holes. Weibring extracted a few trees (less than 20 percent), but he essentially left the property, with its dramatic pitches and rolls, intact.
Par for the course is 71. From the back tees the course plays to 7183 yards. From the forward tees the course measures 5179 yards. The longest hole on the course is # 10, a par-5 that plays to 583 Yards. The shortest hole on the course is # 16, a par-3 that plays to 158 yards from the back tees.
Watch out for # 9, a 485 yard par-4 challenge and the #1 handicap hole on the course. The easiest hole is # 13, a 414 yard par-4.

I have been there to watch the pros play and have always wanted to play but a long drive to get there. I thought the course was in great shape for October. I will play again earlier in the year next time. I have recommended this course to other players already and will continue to do so.
