The Evian Masters is a women's professional golf tournament played at the Evian Masters Golf Club in Évian-les-Bains, France each July.

Founded in 1994, it is recognized as a major by the Ladies European Tour. It is not classified as a major by the LPGA Tour, but it has been part of the LPGA Tour's schedule since 2000. However, the Evian Masters will be classified as a major by the LPGA Tour starting in 2013. It is played the week before the Women's British Open, which is a major on both tours, making it convenient for U.S.-based players to participate.

Prior to 2007, the event included 78 players, about half the size of a full-field LPGA Tour event, and was held over four days without a cut, meaning all players played all four days regardless of their scores. Beginning in 2007, the field was expanded to 90 players and a cut added after the second round. A cut means the players with the lowest 70 scores and anyone tied for 70th place play all four rounds and win prize money based on their final standing in the tournament. The other players are eliminated after the second round.
