Marshals General Information

Why we volunteer

Welcome to the John Deere Classic and thank you for your interest in serving as a JDC volunteer. Since the tournament was founded in the Quad Cities in 1971, the purpose has been to provide the area with a major league sporting event that helps raise money for charity.

The JDC continues to be the leading charity fundraiser per capita on the PGA TOUR. This is possible only because of volunteers like you. Thank you for your hard work in the past; we are looking forward to working with you this year.

How do I register

Please do one of the following:
  • Online Registration - go to and register online. This saves both you and the tournament time and money.

  • If you received a letter and registration cards in the mail, complete one of the enclosed registration cards and drop it in the mail today. Photocopy extra letters and cards to give to friends and invite them to come and work with you. Note: To save postage we generally send one registration letter per address.

If you are a member of a service organization, please ask if the club members would consider making marshaling a club project and work as a team.

Registration instructions

To be fair to everyone, we ask you to volunteer for at least 4 shifts, Wednesday through Sunday. Complete all information on the enclosed registration card:
  • include any physical limitations, hole preferences or friends you want to partner with as volunteers

  • mail to Judy Hendren 105 Brayden Lane, Waterloo, Iowa 50701 today.

Important: Mail in registration deadline is June 1st, 2016

Once your card is received you are registered as a marshal for the days you requested. There will be no further mailings. You will be able to check you hole assignment online by tournament week.
