TPC at River Highlands:   This course, overlooking the Connecticut River in Hartford, Connecticut, was originally designed in 1928 (then named Edgewood) by the brother of Donald Ross, R.J. Ross.  In 1980 Pete Dye was hired to transform the course into a modern TPC venue that could host an annual PGA event.  The course was not popular among the touring pros or management. After the 1990 event Bobby Weed, the Tour agronomist, was hired to bring the course up to modern standards. With the addition of some property and the studious research and invention of Mr. Weed the course was transformed with seven new holes and the reduction of par from 71 to 70. Retaining the dramatic 17th and the anti-climatic 18th of Dyes original holes, Bobby Weed turned the course into a challenging and entertaining venue where almost one out of three tournament winners has been determined by a playoff. The course continues to be one of the most popular and anticipated annually on the PGA Tour

Chas Demster has recreated the course for Links 2001 and it can be downloaded free from Links Corner.
