Did you know?

Boutier enjoyed tremendous success as an amateur player, winning numerous titles including the European Ladies Amateur (2012), British Ladies Amateur (2015), and NCAA Golf Championship (2014) as a member of the Duke University team. She was ranked the world's No.1 amateur woman golfer in late 2014 and early 2015.

Turning professional in 2016, she became a two-time winner on the developmental Symetra Tour, before graduating to the full LPGA Tour at the end of 2017. Also to close-out 2017, she recorded her first Ladies European Tour win, bagging the Sanya Ladies Open in China.

Several European and LPGA Tour wins later (which included a French Open title and successful Solheim Cup appearances), Boutier won the Evian Championship in 2023, her first major championship title.

Who's Who

Céline Boutier: with many successes as both an amateur and professional golfer, Boutier added a major championship title to her impressive résumé at this year’s Evian Championship.

Alex Cejka: buffeted by rain and high winds, especially on the high-scoring final day, Čejka prevailed over Pádraig Harrington in a playoff at Royal Porthcawl, to scoop the Senior Open Championship title.

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club: With a clubhouse that might befit a Roman Emperor, and a golf course to match, you can be sure of a memorable outing at Rome's most talked about golf facility.

Jim Fazio's original layout was much changed to create a modern Ryder Cup course ... now one of the Eternal City's (and Italy's) most revered.
