Located on a bluff above the Connecticut River, the TPC course originally belonged to Middletown Golf Club when it was established in 1928, changing hands six years later to become the property of Edgewood County Club.

The PGA Tour acquired the course in the early1980s, bringing in Pete Dye to redesign the layout to professional tournament standards before it re-opened as the TPC of Connecticut, hosting the Greater Hartford Open with both Canon and Sammy Davis Jnr as title sponsors.

Just a few years later, the course was further remodelled by Bobby Weed, in consultation with Tour professionals Howard Twitty and Roger Maltbie, and renamed TPC River Highlands, with the PGA Tour event losing Sammy Davis Jnr from its title.

Now known as the Travelers Championship, this professional tournament attracts huge crowds, and their massive numbers make it second only to the Phoenix Open for the most-attended PGA Tour event every year.

The course is routed around a 148-acre property, with tree-lined bent grass playing corridors skirting a number of water hazards along the way. Holes 15 to 17 are certainly aquatically challenged as they play around a four-acre lake, making this closing stretch one of the most exciting on the pro circuit.
