The most important tournament by far in Switzerland has been held in Crans-Montana since 1939. Since the European Tour was established in 1972, the Omega European Masters of today has been part of the most significant tournament series in Europe. The prize money is currently EUR 2 million.
At the second highest level, the Challenge Tour, two events take place in Switzerland every year. The Swiss Challenge at Golf Sempach is traditionally played at the end of May. This is for prize money of EUR 180,000. The Rolex Trophy at Geneva Golf Club follows this every August. A small field plays in the pro-am format here for a total of EUR 250,000.
In early July, the best senior players in Europe meet for the traditional Swiss Seniors Open in Bad Ragaz. In this, the over-50 pros play for a prize pot of EUR 320,000.
