Evian Resort

Within an estate of over 245 acres, the Evian Resort blends stylishly and innovatively with the mountain peaks of Haute-Savoie.

This outstanding natural setting is by no means its only asset. Much more than a luxury hotel complex, the Evian Resort has a unique offering: the legendary 5-starHôtel Royal Palace, which wonderfully combines Belle Epoque charm with stylish contemporary design; the Hôtel Ermitage, a 4-star establishment with authenticity and an inviting atmosphere featuring delicate touches of nature; two hotel spas and evian® thermal spa; a Kid’s Resort with facilities of over 1,000 m2; the Evian Resort Golf Club and its Leadbetter certified Academy; the Grange au Lac, one of the most beautiful concert halls in the world, not forgetting Evian’s Casino-Theatre.

The Evian Resort also offers its guests an exceptional experience on board the latest-generation boat Evian One, with a journey time of under 45 minutes between Geneva and Evian (and 15 minutes between Lausanne and Evian), with the opportunity to explore all that is on offer around Lake Geneva.

Golfing Experience

Set in 148 acres of wooded parkland with breathtaking views of Lake Geneva and the Alpine peaks, the Evian Resort Golf Club is a legendary course. Each year, this iconic course, renamed The Champions Course, hosts The Amundi Evian Championship, one of the major championships on the women’s world golf tour. The experience continues both at the Academy and at the Hôtel Royal, which is equipped with a GolfZon simulator so that golf can played all year round.

Championship Course

Totally renovated in 2013, this 18-hole course has pace and is highly spectacular with technically-challenging greens and strategically-placed hazards. It provides a venue fitting for the status of The Amundi Evian Championship, one of the five international women’s majors, while offering amateurs a course on which they can each express their style of golf to the full.

The Champions Course is an 18-hole course (6,120 metres – 6, 693 yards, par 72), at the Evian Resort Golf Club, located in Evian-les-Bains, France. Its location on the shores of Lake Geneva, at the foot of the Alps, offers stunning views all the way round the course. It is one of the most beautiful golf courses in France.

Evian Resort Golf Club offers a venue fitting for the status of The Amundi Evian Championship and the talent of its champions, while also offering amateur players (minimum index:35) a course on which they can fully express their golf all year round.

“It’s a great course, pretty complicated. You really need to keep the ball on the fairway. The rough is pretty thick. The greens play fast, some of the putts can be really tricky. You have to think about a lot of things, but that’s what makes it a great course.” Lexi Thompson

Just a stone’s throw from the greens, with an unobstructed view of the mountains, the Chalet du Golf restaurant serves quality food with a choice of light or more indulgent dishes in a stylish, friendly atmosphere.

Major Championship Venue

Each year, the Evian Resort Golf Club hosts The Amundi Evian Championship, the legendary tournament which has crowned the greatest women golfers in the world. Launched in 1994 by Antoine and Franck Riboud, in 2013 the tournament became one of the highly select 5 Major championships in women’s world golf. The Evian Masters was renamed The Amundi Evian Championship.

This Major, which the champions say is unlike any other, stands out both for the quality of the course and its prize purse of over 4 million dollars. An incredible driving force in providing exposure to women’s world golf, The Amundi Evian Championship has forged its own history to become a unique event with a legendary track record. Its singular status and strong ambition is visible in its commitment to bring to the fore and support young talent.

Le Manoir du Golf & Leadbetter Academy

The Evian Resort Golf Club has its own training centre, the Academy, destined for golfers of all ages and ability, from beginners through to pros. In 2018, the Academy joined forces with the world leader in golf instruction, the famous coach David Leadbetter, to provide top-quality instruction. All players can benefit from a tailored tuition programme thanks to the 6 training modules designed for working on all shots.

The Evian Resort has acquired an indoor GolfZon simulator, located at the Hôtel Royal. Individually or with friends, there are 180 courses to be played around the world (St Andrews, Mission Hills, Pebble Beach…) including The Amundi Evian Championship course, and lessons available with a golf pro from the Academy. Equipped with a multitude of sensors and cameras, the GolfZon simulator analyses data in real-time.

In 2020, the Evian Resort Golf Club added a second course located at the Academy. With 6 par-3s and a total length of 885 metres (968 yards), this new course offers a real alternative to the 18-hole “Champions Course”. Nestling in outstanding surroundings with breathtaking views of Lake Geneva, both beginners and experienced golfers can indulge in their passion in under 90 minutes. Designed by architect Dave Sampson and named “The Lake Course”, it is technically challenging with tee box locations suited to all abilities and top-quality greens.

A unique stay at the heart of the Academy. From April to October, golfers can stay at the Manoir du Golf, a charming property with 7 rooms and suites, that can also be booked for exclusive use. A welcoming atmosphere with the feel of an English clubhouse for an exclusive golf experience.
