EXCITING NEW LOCATION: TPC River Highlands, Cromwell
Host of the PGA Tour’s Travelers Championship
Each June, The Village hosts the Foursomes for Fatherhood Golf Classic to raise funds for our programs that provide fathers with the skills and support they need to be involved in the lives of their children.
Children Go Further with Fathers
The Village provides new and expecting fathers with skills and support they need to be involved in their children’s lives. Many of the young fathers helped by The Village have not had a father or even a mentor to serve as a positive role model.
Here is why children need fathers in their lives:
- 66% of African American children, 35% of Latino Children and 27% of Caucasian children live apart from their fathers
- 85% of children with behavioral problems come from fatherless homes
- Fatherless children are twice as likely to drop out of school
- Youths are more at risk of substance abuse without a highly-involved father

About TPC River Highlands
TPC River Highlands was named by Golf Digest as “One of the Top 10 Golf Courses in the State” and and by Connecticut Golfer Online as “Best Private Course in the State” for six consecutive years.
The course meanders over 148 acres with stately corridors of mature maple, oak, sycamore and eastern white pine trees framing gently rolling fairways. The course features Bentgrass from tee to green surrounded by bluegrass fescue rough. Numerous lakes and ponds add to the golf course’s beauty.
TPC River Highlands’ award-winning golf course boasts a tough finishing stretch from holes 15-18. The 15, 16 and 17th holes all play around a four-acre lake. Stewart Cink, who won the 2008 Travelers Championship, called them, “four of the most exciting finishing holes in a group anywhere in the world.”
