Rolex has supported The Evian Championship since 2000 as part of an enduring involvement that permeates all levels of golf – from grassroots, amateurs and elite professionals to the leading tours, tournaments and organizations.
One of the five women’s Majors, it is staged at the Evian Resort Golf Club, nestled between Lake Geneva and the French Alps. Breathtakingly beautiful, the course’s narrow fairways, dense rough and carefully designed greens test all competitors. A trio of Rolex Testimonees have triumphed here: Annika Sörenstam (2000, 2002), Lydia Ko (2015) and Anna Nordqvist (2017).
During the tournament, The Evian Championship Prize for a Better Tomorrow presented by Rolex will again be awarded. The prize recognizes initiatives linked to women's golf that champion excellence, generosity and continuity, qualities dear to this event and Rolex. Last year’s inaugural recipient was Lorena Ochoa, former World No. 1 and Major winner, for her work with underprivileged children in her native Mexico.
For 40 years, Rolex has been a pioneering partner of the Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA). The brand is Official Timekeeper at all women’s Majors and sponsors the LPGA’s top awards, including the Rolex Rookie of the Year, Rolex Player of the Year and the Rolex ANNIKA Major Award for the player with the season’s best record in the Majors.
