On the shore of the Niagara River, the Sandy Beach Yacht Club will provide a one-of-a-kind setting for this year’s tournament — just five miles from the brink of Niagara Falls.

Inside, players will compete in air conditioned comfort, with ample room between and around the machines. When you’re not playing, you can relax inside at the bar or in a lounge area, or outside by the water.
