TPC River Highlands has a long history hosting the annual Travelers Championship on the PGA Tour, dating back to 1984, when Pete Dye redesigned nine of the existing holes (formerly Edgewood Country Club). Then one of Dye's former associates, Bobby Weed, returned in 1989 to not only renovate the existing course but add holes as part of a newly built home-development project, one of the first of its kind. Weed has continued to return to renovate the course over the years, including most recently a substantial bunker project in 2016.

West Hartford, CT

Wampanoag has always possessed a gracefully gliding property in the now wooded suburbs of West Hartford, but it had long ago lost the finer points of its 1926 Donald Ross design. Modifications through the decades, including a poorly-received renovation in the 1980s that added the era’s popular mounds and moguls, pushed the design increasingly out of time and place. In 2022, architects Tyler Rae and Kyle Franz, working with historian-consultant Brad Klein (a former Wampanoag member), commenced a comprehensive restoration of the course that included several new and newly enlarged greens and tees and significant tree removal. Back are Ross’s cops and chiseled bunkers rotated at angles into the avenues of play setting up set-piece strategies. Rae and Franz restored lost bunkers and doubled their overall square footage, twisting them suggestively across fairways as Ross had them, and also re-introduced short top-shot bunkers that rarely come into play but create depth and directional confusion. Wampanoag finished fourth in the 2023 Best Renovation awards (out of 30 courses), and after nearly 100 years feels once again like the golf course it was meant to be.

Keney Park Golf Course
Public
Keney Park Golf Course
Hartford, CT
If affordable and quality public golf is becoming increasingly harder to find, Keney Park in Hartford, Conn., stands out as an exception. With resident rates under $40 and non-resident around $50, it’s an excellent value for a course with classical architecture. Devereux Emmet designed the front nine in 1927 and Robert “Jack” Ross laid out the back in 1931. There are some template holes, including Redan and Road holes, as well as Church Pew bunkers. The property has plenty of elevation changes, and the greens are exciting with tumbling ridges allowing for creativity. The City of Hartford has invested close to six million dollars into the course since 2016, when the course underwent a renovation.
