MetLife blimp arrives for John Deere Classic

The Metlife blimp got here a couple of days early and it was such a beautiful day, the pilots must have said, “I will see enough golf, let’s head for the river.”  I took this shot from our boat late Sunday afternoon.

Check out the John Deere Classic, I bet the blimp will be there.

Rock River Flooding at TPC Deere Run in Silvis IL

We have very many nice golf courses here in the Quad Cities both private and public.  And they are very reasonably priced.  The Tournament Players Club has a course at Deere Run in Silvis IL.  Here is a link:

The Rock River runs adjacent to the course.  It flows into the Mississippi River just south of Rock Island IL.

I was there for lunch last week.  It looks to me like the Rock River has claimed a hole or two.
