About a 5 hour drive.. Moline is on the Iowa border and in the NW side of the state, while Terre Haute is on the Wabash River on the SE side of the state..

I can probobly answer that question for you. The Quad City International Airport (MLI) is a fairly good size of an airport. It has over 70 flights a day and goes to 8 different hubs across the US. It also serves as a good place for larger aircraft to land due to its 10,003x150 foot runway which is capable of landing any aircraft in any weather condition. Southwest is used as a charter service alot of times for events and was probobly was used for the Celebrity Golf Tournament taken place at the TPC at Deere Run in Silvis, IL. Southwest does not serve the Quad City International Airport so it has to be a chartered flight.

Is there more than one golf event at the TPC at Deere Run? I was in Silvis last year during the John Deere Open (or something like that) at the end of July. Anyway, it's a nice golf course.

BTW, my sister used to live in East Moline, too.

The Celebrity Golf Tournament is a tourney held by the Isle of Capri Casino in Bettendorf and they bring some pretty big actors and actresses. But the John Deere Classic is the only PGA Tour event held there.
