The John Deere Classic is thanking our military this week by providing free admission to the golf tournament... and that's not all.
From Thursday through Sunday, July 12th through 15th, all military personnel holding a Common Access Card, as well as those who have retired from Armed Services and Veterans who have a valid ID card - plus one guest - can get into TPC Deere Run for free.
*This offer applies to active duty, retired military and veterans of the armed forces only, and not civilian or contractor CAC card holders, according to the John Deere Classic website.
The program is sponsored by Lowe's and is being expanded this year with the help of Ray'z Barber Shop. On top of free admission, all military and their guests are invited to the air-conditioned Military Outpost venue behind the tee of #18 for VIP golf viewing.
There are also special discounts this week for kids, college students, and seniors.
"We just want to spend this week making sure as many people as possible get to enjoy what we have here," said Clair Peterson, Tournament Director of the John Deere Classic. "By the time, [the JDC] is all over, hopefully about 100,00 people go through the turnstiles."
