The Evian Championship
The leading women players in the world have been crowned in Evian at the tournament launched over 20 years ago by Antoine Riboud. Since 1994, the event has made it to the peak of world golf.
THE ONLY WOMEN’S MAJOR IN CONTINENTAL EUROPE
In 2013, it was renamed the Evian Championship and became a member of the highly select club of 5 Majors on the women’s world golf tour. Following the Ana Inspiration, KPMG Women’s PGA Championship, US Women’s Open and Ricoh Women’s British Open, the newcomer to the club of Majors, strategically placed at the end of the season, will once again this year crown the world’s top women golfers from 14 to 17 September 2017.
The Evian Championship, co-sanctioned by the US and European tours (respectively LPGA and LET) is played in stroke play over 4 rounds (18 holes per day). After the 2 first rounds, the 70 top players and ties make the cut.
TEE OFF FOR TWO WEEKS OF GOLF
Over the years, The Evian Championship has gradually created its own history, made itself unique and offers the perfect balance of tradition and innovation. Aided by steadfast support from the Sponsors’ Club, the players, the public and volunteers… and proud of its past, the Evian Championship also gained its legitimacy through its winners’ list and the champions who feature on it.
The 2017 edition of the tournament will be held from 14 to 17 September and tees off two great weeks of golf, with the Major being followed by competitions dedicated to the youngest golfers.
19 & 20 September 2017: 18 nations will meet for the 10th Evian Championship Juniors Cup, the world cup for boys and girls in the under 14 category and who include the great golfers of tomorrow! Jordan Spieth, winner of the Masters and US Open in 2015 took part in the first Juniors Cup with the US team in 2007.
23 & 24 September 2017: the grand final of the Haribo Kids Cup brings these two weeks of golf to a close with the participation of the leading 8 to 12 year olds, further to selections in France, Belgium and Switzerland.
