The TPC at River Highlands in Cromwell, Connecticut, in the United States, will host the Travelers Championship in 2024.


TPC River Highlands' 6,841-yard, par-70 course was fully renovated by the renowned Pete Dye in 1982. The course was formerly known as Middletown Golf Club in 1928 and then as Edgewood Country Club. Architect Bobby Weed and PGA Tour Design Services, Inc. renovated the championship golf course a second time in 1989, while professional golfers Howard Twitty and Roger Maltbie provided suggestions.


TPC River Highlands received six consecutive awards, including "Best Private Course in the State" from Connecticut Golfer Online and "One of the Top 10 Golf Courses in the State" from Golf Digest.


The 148-acre course has earned complete certification from the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program for Golf Courses (ACSP), an organization that promotes environmentally responsible land management and safeguards the habitats of wildlife.


The award-winning golf course at TPC River Highlands features a challenging final stretch from holes 15–18. A four-acre lake is the setting for the 15, 16, and 17th holes. Stewart Cink, the 2008 Travelers Championship winner, referred to them as "four of the most exciting finishing holes in a group anywhere in the world."
