Rolex and The Evian Championship

The Evian Championship

Rolex and golf

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