The tournament will be hosted at the Club de Golf Atlantide Golf Course.
Open since 1990, the Atlantide course was designed by renowned Canadian architect, Graham Cooke. While making the course an appealing challenge he took advantage of the natural site as the historic Pointe-du-Moulin on Île Perrot.
Comfortably settled on the coast of Lac St-Louis, the Atlantide is a championship course that stretches over 6700 yards where the wind and the greens undulations are the main difficulties.
