From the ring-road in the centre of Geneve, follow signs for Thonon / Evian along the south side of Lac Leman. After 42 km at the first roundabout in Evian-le-Bains, turn right, and follow the road up the hill, direction Evian Masters GC. After o.8 km turn left, direction Golf. After o.3 km turn right into golf.
Evian Resort Golf Course: The ever-present views onto Lake Geneva, excellent green-keeping and garden-like qualities make this one of France's most visually pleasing courses. Occupying terrain that slopes away from the lake, Cabell Robinson's redesign has ensured that climbing slopes is kept to a minimum. What Robinson does demand however, is a sharp approach game if you want to avoiding the often ferocious bunkering.
Evian's fabulous lake-view 15th is a photographic delight, and a veritable knee-trembler of a downhill par-3. The Alpine chalets that line some of the course seem to blend with the overall environment, and the cuckoo-clock house at the 17th green is picture-postcard perfect. As the back-nine draws to its close the fairways seem to get tighter and tighter, but by now you'll have melted into the lakeside pleasures of this famous major championship golf course.
