TPC River Highlands is a private golf club located in Cromwell, Connecticut, which is a part of the Tournament Players Club network operated by the PGA Tour. Since 1984 it has been the venue for the tour's annual Travelers Championship, previously known as the Buick Championship and Greater Hartford Open.

TPC River Highlands was named by Golf Digest as "One of the Top 10 Golf Courses in the State" and the "Best Private Course in the State" by Connecticut Golfer Online for six consecutive years. More recently in 2012, TPC River Highlands was ranked No. 25 by PGA Tour pros in Golf World's PGA Tour Course Rankings.[citation needed]

Former names[edit]

  • Middletown Golf Club (1928–34)
  • Edgewood Country Club (1934–84)
  • TPC of Connecticut (1984–89)

History[edit]

The club was founded in 1928 as Middletown Golf Club and became Edgewood Country Club in 1934. In the early 1980s it was bought by the PGA Tour. The golf course was redesigned to TPC standards by renowned golf course architect Pete Dye, and reopened as the "TPC of Connecticut" in 1984. The course underwent further remodelling in 1989, this time by Bobby Weed in consultation with tour pros Howard Twitty and Roger Maltbie, and renamed the TPC at River Highlands.[2]

Course record[edit]

The course record is held by PGA Tour pro Jim Furyk who shot a 58 on August 7, 2016 in the final round of the 2016 Travelers Championship. Furyk's score is the lowest 18 hole score in PGA Tour history. [3] Previously, the record was held by amateur Patrick Cantlay, a 19-year-old collegian from UCLA, who set the course record of 60 at the Travelers Championship on June 24, 2011.[4]
