The Evian Championship started out as the Evian Masters in 1994 and was considered a major by the Ladies European Tour. It became a co-sanctioned event with the LPGA Tour in 2000. It has now come full circle and, in 2013, was considered a Major Championship by the LPGA Tour and had the second-highest purse (next to the US Women’s Open.) in women’s golf!
Watching the coverage of this tournament, it quickly becomes clear that the golf course at Evian Resort Golf Club has a special place in the players’ hearts.
They speak about in interviews and on social media. The sublime lakeside location, with its majestic mountainous backdrop, is certainly part of it, but the allure of this golf course goes beyond the obvious beauty of the site. The Evian Resort Golf Course… I would venture to say… has a uniquely seductive personality.

Golf courses, like people, have personalities. Some are affable and easy-going, while others are distant and demanding.
Some quiet and calm, others open and exuberant. We who play the game know this, and Evian’s personality, I can happily confirm, is delightful.
We’d been looking forward to playing at Evian for years, and when our closest friends moved to the French Alpes… just a couple of towns away… we knew the time was right. So we made our way there this summer, and on a sun-drenched day in early July we experienced firsthand the singular, seductive charm of Evian Resort Golf Course.
The seduction began well before we approached the first tee. We’d booked a twilight tee time, but arrived early in the afternoon, giving us time to have lunch, look around, and spend some time on the practice range.
