Travelers Championship

New Clubhouse Is Latest Improvement to Connecticut PGA Stop

Connecticut's PGA Tour stop will have a new clubhouse ready in time for next month's Travelers Championship. 

Work on the 40,000-square foot building began last July, a week after the 2018 tournament ended.

Defending champion Bubba Watson is getting a look at it Monday, the annual media day in advance of next month's tournament. 

The building is four times the size of the old clubhouse and includes locker rooms, multiple banquet and dining rooms, two commercial-grade kitchens, administrative offices and a golf shop. 

David Corrado, the general manager at TPC River Highlands, said the building will mean more revenue for the club, which has already booked it for numerous weddings and other events.

It is the latest improvement to the course, which added a new practice facility in 2009 and underwent major renovations in 2015 and 2016. 

Phil Mickelson, Brooks Koepka, Justin Thomas, Francesco Molinari, Bryson DeChambeau, Paul Casey, Tony Finau, Jason Day, Tommy Fleetwood, Patrick Cantlay, Patrick Reed and Marc Leishman have all committed to this year’s tournament.

The 2019 Travelers Championship will be held June 17 to 23 at TPC River Highlands in Cromwell.
