Military Appreciation Program


Please join us as we honor our Veterans, active and retired military members at the 2024 John Deere Classic. Thanks to Lowe’s, all military personnel currently holding a Common Access Card (CAC), as well as those who have retired from Armed Services and Veterans who have a valid ID card, will be given free Grounds admission for themselves and a guest. Tickets will be day-specific but you may register for more than one day, Wednesday – Sunday. This offer applies to active duty, retired military and veterans of the armed forces only, and not civilian or contractor CAC card holders.  Military members are invited to register online* in advance of the tournament for their complimentary ticket(s). You must register online prior to the event. All tickets will be digitally delivered after verifying your service through GovX. Tickets will be available for Military personnel starting on May 7th. PLEASE NOTE: Saturday & Sunday tickets for 2024 are sold out.

In addition to the complimentary ticket program, there will be a Patriot’s Outpost on the 18th green where military members can stop in, view golf and find some shade throughout the day. This venue will be located directly next to the John Deere Skybox on the 18th green near the pond. The venue is sponsored by our wonderful partners: Moline Regional Community Foundation and Pro Em Events. To enter, please display your Military Badge that you will receive near the main gate.

On Thursday, the 4th of July, Crystal Group is excited to host Military Members who secure tickets through the GovX portal and Spinzo in the air-conditioned Chalet on 18. This is a ticketed event and it will be first come, first served (SOLD OUT). All tickets will need to be claimed digitally through the Thursday ticketing event on the Military ticketing website in advance. Food and beverages will be available to the ticketholders from 11 AM – 4 PM on Thursday, July 4th only. Special thank you to the Crystal Group for supporting our military members!

On Friday, July 5th, the John Deere Classic will celebrate it’s first ever FOLDS OF HONOR FRIDAY in conjunction with nonprofit organization Folds of Honor. Learn more about the program and the schedule of events for the day here.
