Amundi Evian Championship 2024 preview: Field, betting odds, tee times, how to watch

Everything you need to know about the 2024 Amundi Evian Championship.

The top female golfers head to the stunning Evian Resort Golf Club in Evian-les-Bains, all vying for victory at The Evian Championship, the fourth Major tournament of the year. The Evian Championship is co-sanctioned by the LET and the LPGA tours, and is the sole Major on the European continent for women’s and men’s professional golf. 

From 2013 to 2018, this event was the LPGA Tour’s fifth and final major but has since become the fourth major of the year after being moved to July. 

This year, the Championship is celebrating its 30th anniversary, with the world’s elite contesting for the season’s penultimate major. Céline Boutier was crowned champion in 2023 after an impressive -14 score, with 2022’s champion Brooke Henderson finishing runner-up six shots back. 

The tournament begins on Thursday 11 July 2024, with 132 players in the field contending for a share of the $8 million prize fund.  

Once called the Evian Masters, the Evian Championship achieved Major status in 2013 and is by far one of the most scenic events on the golf calendar. The par-71 course at the Evian Resort dazzles with stunning views of the Alps and Lake Geneva, making it a memorable host for the Major tournament. 

In 2015, Lydia Ko made history here as the youngest women’s Major winner at just 18. The following year, South Korea’s In Gee Chun set a record with a 21-under-par finish, the lowest 72-hole score in any Major.

This 18-hole, par-71 course spans 6,333 yards (5,791 m). It underwent a major $8 million renovation in 2012–13, with architect Steve Smyers and European Golf Design enhancing the tees, fairways, greens, and bunkers.
