A Long Tradition of Excellence A Rich Legacy of Champions
From tournament-tested golf courses to well-equipped clubhouses and first-rate service, the TPC Network has consistently upheld the PGA TOUR’s highest standards. Over the course of four decades, since the flagship TPC Sawgrass opened in 1980 as the future home of THE PLAYERS Championship, TPCs have hosted over 400 professional golf tournaments. Many of the world’s most iconic golf course architects have lent their expertise to TPCs, including Pete Dye, Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player, Gil Hanse and Greg Norman, to name a few.
First known as Middletown Golf Club in 1928 and later as Edgewood Country Club, TPC River Highlands’ par-70, 6,841-yard course was completely redesigned by the legendary Pete Dye in 1982.
The first year the Travelers Championship held at TPC River Highlands, known then as the Sammy Davis Jr. Greater Hartford Open.
In the first tournament at the TPC of Connecticut (later renamed the TPC at River Highlands), long-time crowd favorite Peter Jacobsen captured the victory.
