The Quebec Championship (French: Championnat de Québec)[n 1] is a professional golf tournament on the Champions Tour, a professional tour for golfers 50 and older operated by the PGA Tour. A 54-hole event, it debuted in 2010 as the Montreal Championship (French: Championnat de Montréal) at the Club de Golf Fontainebleau in the Montreal suburb of Blainville, Quebec, Canada. The course was a par-72 at 7,105 yards (6,497 m)[1]

For 2012, the tournament moved a week earlier in the schedule and relocated to the Vercheres course at La Vallee du Richelieu Golf Club in Sainte-Julie, Quebec.[2] The tournament remained at La Vallee du Richelieu in 2013, but changed its date to September and switched to the Rouville course.[3]

The 2013 edition was the last in the Montreal area. The event moved to the Quebec City area for 2014, and is now held at Golf La Tempête in Lévis. The 2014 edition is the first PGA Tour-sanctioned event held in the Quebec City area since the 1956 Labatt Open.[4]
