The Champions Course in 7 figures
July 08, 2021 | The Amundi Evian Championship
Today is the opening day of the 27th edition of The Amundi Evian Championship. Several groups have already teed off on the The Champions Course, a challenging course layout in a magnificent setting surrounded by lake and mountains. The venue for the only women’s Major to be held in Continental Europe, this stunning golf course, like all others, has its specific features. Here is a presentation of the course through the lens of 7 key figures.
5970 : The total length of all 18 holes, in metres. The equivalent of approximately 6,530 yards, and on the whole the average length for a women’s golf Major.
71 : Total par of The Champions Course. Once again, the course is within the norm, even though most 18-hole courses are played in 72 shots.
61 : Record for 18 holes by Hyo Joo Kim in the first round of The Evian Championship 2014. An effortless 10-under par round by the current world number 5, who also won the tournament that year.
263 : 72-hole record by In-Gee Chun at The Evian Championship 2016. The South Korean took the lead over her two compatriots Sung-Hyun Park and So-Yeon Ryu.
18 : The spectacular hole. A par 5 on which golfers can choose to attack the green with their second shot, or play it safe by holding onto a short shot to then aim for the green, or even the pin.
