The Evian Championship

Rolex and golf

Nestled between Lake Geneva and the French Alps, the Evian Championship is as breathtakingly beautiful as it is challenging. Narrow fairways, dense rough and carefully designed greens make the century-old course the perfect stage for the leading showcase in women’s golf, and one of the five Major tournaments. In this serene environment, the world’s best women golfers produce exceptional displays of golfing precision and excellence as they compete for the title.
