The Evian Resort Golf Club is home to the Evian Championship on the Ladies’ European Tour and is one of most picturesque places to play in France.
With panoramic of views of Lake Geneva and some stunning holes throughout the round, you will struggle to find a course with better views than Evian.
The Evian Resort is a five-star haven with two hotels, a casino and an array of restaurants and spas accompanying the 6,595-yard golf course, where water is a theme throughout – as you might expect given the bottled water of the same name.
The Evian was originally a nine-holer when first opened more than a century ago in 1904, but became an 18-hole test when extended in 1988. As recently as 2013 it was remodelled to form the current layout.
There’s plenty to like about the par-72 course – including the redesigned contoured greens which provide a serious test of any golfer…but perhaps nothing more so that the closing four holes.
The quartet of holes are known as the Evian Puzzle and provide a stunning finish to the round. The 16th features three ponds and the 18th a 442-yard dogleg when water awaits an errant approach.
The fifth is now played over water as a par-three having previously been a par-four, while the 13th is now a par-five test. It’s an impressive layout and one to add to the list if you’re golfing in France.
