Charitable Focus
The Travelers Championship is proud to participate in the PGA TOUR Tradition of Giving Back. Since its inception in 1952, Connecticut’s PGA TOUR event has donated more than $49 million to charities in the surrounding community.

Course
TPC River Highlands, a par 70, 6,841 yard course in Cromwell, Connecticut, 10 miles south of Hartford. The course is a well-balanced golf test with a mixture of long and short holes. The most notable stretch is Nos. 15-17 which play around a four-acre lake. When you include the home hole, the four-hole collection is, according to Stewart Cink, “four of the most exciting finishing holes in a group anywhere in the world.”

Nonprofit Organization
The Greater Hartford Community Foundation, Inc. was formed on October 21, 2005 as a nonprofit organization to promote community based fundraising activities and events, including sporting, cultural, educational and other charitable fundraising activities and events. The Foundation’s mission is to be a world class PGA TOUR event that maximizes giving to charity while benefiting the community. The Foundation’s primary fundraising activity is the Travelers Championship, Connecticut’s annual PGA TOUR golf tournament. The net proceeds realized by the tournament and other such activities and events are for the benefit of the citizens, social welfare organizations and other institutions of the community.
