Evian Resort Golf Club | Évian-les-Bains, France
Voted “Europe’s leading luxury golf resort 2015” at the World Luxury Hotel Awards, the Evian Resort is a golf destination not to be missed. Located in 148 acres of wooded parkland on the Shores of Lake Geneva, at the foot of the Alps, the Evian Resort Golf Club is a spectacular golf course with pace that asserts its strong French identity. The home to the Evian Championship, the only Major tournament in Continental Europe, it and offers the legendary quality of a championship course set in stunning natural surroundings. It is one of the oldest courses in France.
The course at the Evian Resort Golf Club was totally redesigned in 2013 by a team of international architects. The objective was to give a strong identity to these 18 holes positioned in the heart of an exceptional natural setting while respecting a set of values, relating to protection of the environment. The course is today a true Major course, challenging, with a very clear, spectacular overall vision.
