The coaches Giovanni Magni and Camilla Mortigliengo accompanied the team. In 1904, the Evian Mineral Water Company bought a farm and the surrounding land from the Berthet family to build a 9-hole golf course there for the enjoyment of future guests of the Hôtel Royal, inaugurated in 1909.

The course will be extended in 1922 to reach 18 holes. It was completely renovated between 1988 and 1990 by the British architect Cabell B. Robinson, former assistant to Robert Trent Jones. Since 1994, the year of the first edition of the Evian Masters, the course has been remodeled several times to incorporate the latest USGA standards; in particular, it was lengthened in 2003.

Today, the course is part of the “Evian Resort” domain made up of two hotels (L'Ermitage and the Hôtel Royal).
