History & Story
Evian Resort Golf Club & The Champions Course:
In 1904, the Société des Eaux Minérales d’Evian purchased this land and built a 9-hole golf course in preparation for the opening of the Hotel Royal. Located at 500 meters above sea level, facing Lausanne, this golf course immediately seduced visitors with its magnificent view. In 1922, the 9-hole course was extended to 18 holes. In 1994, the creation of the Evian Masters by Antoine and Franck Riboud is part of a real desire to ” strive for women’s golf, to launch an event where women golfers could do their job in the best conditions “. In 2012, the Evian Masters became a true legend by becoming the fifth Major, the first in Continental Europe, and became The Evian Championship. In 2021, Amundi becomes the title partner of The Evian Championship.
Evian Resort Golf Club Academy & The Lake Course:
In 2006: Inauguration of the Academy, a state-of-the-art training center and official practice facility for the players of The Amundi Evian Championship. In 2019, this unique center benefits from major renovations and its course is extended from 4 to 6 holes.
Two Courses, for a complete offer:

• The Lake Course, 6 hole-course, located at the Academy, the official training center. 1922 – Le parcours 9 trous est étendu à 18 trous.
Training Center: The Academy at the Evian Resort Golf Club was designed by a team of specialists (designers, players, champions and pros) to reinvent the game of golf. The Evian Resort hosts the David Leadbetter Academy within its facility. All the golfing experiences and subtleties of a golf course are concentrated in 6 training modules and 6 holes located in a natural and exceptional environment of 15 hectares between lake and mountains.
Le Manoir du Golf: In the heart of the Academy, come and experience the Manoir du Golf, an early 20th century residence and a true refuge for all golfers. Built in 1911, the Manoir du Golf has the soul and elegance of the homes of yesteryear. The renovation of the rooms has preserved this authenticity and the atmosphere is cosy and 100% golf. A total of 17 people can stay in this sublime residence of 7 rooms.
Club House – Le Chalet du Golf: Following a round of 18 holes on one of the most beautiful courses in Europe or after a training session, treat yourself to a break at the Chalet du Golf. From the Clubhouse’s sunny terrace, enjoy a spot at the heart of the course, a stone’s throw from the 18th green with uninterrupted views of the mountains. The Chalet du Golf offers a stylish, contemporary atmosphere. The decor is a blend of noble materials such as wood and stone, chic hues and furnishings that give it the cosy feel of an Anglo-Saxon clubhouse.
