With its entry into the exclusive circle of the Major tournaments in women's world golf in 2013, The Evian Championship - which celebrate his 25th anniversary, from 25 to 28 July 2019 – is more than ever reliant on its loyal and dynamic sponsors Club to ensure its unique and sustainable business model.
Rolex has supported The Evian Championship since 2000, part of an enduring involvement that permeates all levels of golf – from grassroots to amateurs and elite professionals, and the leading tours, tournaments and governing bodies. For more than half a century, Rolex has been at the heart of the sport.
The 25th anniversary edition marks a significant chapter in the history of this prestigious tournament. Since achieving Major status in 2013, it has been staged each September, but from this year it will be held in July when the stunning Evian Resort Golf Club course, nestled between Lake Geneva and the French Alps, will be at its glorious best.
The course is not just breathtakingly beautiful. Its narrow fairways, dense rough and carefully designed greens present an exacting challenge for even the world’s most accomplished golfers. A trio of Rolex Testimonees are among the champions who have triumphed here: golfing legend Annika Sörenstam (2000, 2002), fellow Swede Anna Nordqvist (2017), and New Zealand’s Lydia Ko (2015).
For almost 40 years Rolex has been a pioneering partner of the Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA). Rolex is also Official Timekeeper at the five women’s Majors and sponsors the LPGA’s top awards, including the Rolex Rookie of the Year, Rolex Player of the Year as well as the Rolex ANNIKA Major Award for the player with the best record in the Majors each season.
