DAVENPORT -- The three Davenport public golf courses will be noting Military Appreciation Week in the Quad-Cities this week with an offer for free golf.

Anyone with a military ID will be able to get free greens fees at Emeis, Duck Creek, and Red Hawk golf courses through Saturday. To get the free golf, players must show their military IDs when they sign in for golf.

"It's our way of honoring the service men and women of our country," said Troy Evans, Superintendent Revenue Facilities at Davenport Parks and Recreation. "We hope that the military members of the Quad Cities take full advantage of our three great golf courses."

Military Appreciation Week began in 2008 and is a Quad-Cities-wide event created to salute military personnel and show community support for the military installations in the area.
