PGA TOUR’s Traveler’s Championship at TPC River Highlands

The PGA TOUR event in Cromwell, Connecticut is held at the TPC River Highlands. The golf course is one of the first stadium designed courses with areas along several of the holes for fans to sit and watch. The tournament is held in the summertime. A river runs along the east side of the golf course, adding to the beauty. “Named by Golf Digest ‘One of the Top 10 Golf Courses in the State’ and by Connecticut Golfer Online the ‘Best Private Course in the State’ for six consecutive years, the course meanders over 148 acres, with stately corridors of mature maple, oak, sycamore and eastern white pine trees framing gently rolling fairways.” (www.tpcriverhighlands.com, 5/27/10) The course is fun to play with hole numbers 15, 16, and 17 built for drama. Each hole brings water into play and the risk/reward factor always makes for a memorable finish.

Cromwell, Conecticut is one of the oldest cities in America with buildings that have been around over 300 years. There are a lot of history here as seen by the local architecture of the houses, buildings, and churches. In nearby Hartford, Connecticut, there is the popular Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art, America’s oldest public art museum, which has beautiful art collections from around the world and many educational programs.
