For the first time in the history of the Travelers Championship, the event won't be played the week after the U.S. Open. The Travelers Championship will be Aug. 1-7, 2016, at TPC River Highlands in Cromwell.

One reason for the move is to accommodate the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro in August 2016 as golf returns as a sport for the first time since 1904. And the second reason, a later start date gives additional time to complete enhancements at TPC River Highlands. Improvements are scheduled to start in the fall.

The tour schedule from June to August next year has been altered for the Olympics. For example, the PGA Championship, typically held in early August, will be July 25-31, 2016, at Baltusrol Golf Club in Springfield, N.J. Additional changes will be announced. One probable is the World Golf Championships Bridgestone Invitational in Columbus, Ohio, could be two weeks after the U.S. Open at Oakmont Country Club June 16-19.

Travelers Championship tournament director Nathan Grube said Thursday the tournament preferred the early August date. He cited the course enhancements, as part of a multimillion project by the tour, which owns TPC River Highlands, that are scheduled to be completed next year. Updates include new areas for grandstands, spectator viewing areas at holes 15-18 and modifications to greens and renovations to the bunkers.

Charity

The Travelers Championship is proud to participate in the PGA TOUR Tradition of Giving Back. Since it’s inception in 1952, Connecticut’s PGA TOUR event has donated more than $33 million to charities in the surrounding community.
