Amundi German Masters


A year after the announcement of Amundi’s engagement as the title partner for the next five years of the women's golf major in Evian “The Amundi Evian Championship", Amundi takes a new step in its long-term commitment to women’s sport and launches the Amundi German Masters.

In 2022, Amundi in association with U.COM Event, the “Vereinigung clubfreier Golfspieler” and the “Deutsche Golf Verband” are delighted to be able to bring a top-class women’s golf tournament back to Germany and announced the Amundi German Masters.

The 2022 tournament will assemble the elite of women’s golf in Germany from June 30th to July 3rd.

Karolin Lampert – Amundi's team player :

In my mind, the event in Germany has big added value for the Ladies European Tour and the 2022 tournament schedule. The game of golf in Germany will benifit from it at the same time. As a brand ambassador for Amundi, participating in the Amundi German Masters is sure to be one of my personal highlights in the 2022 season.
