The award store rose from €865,000 in 1999 to €4 million from 2006 to 2009, placing the Open de France in the top gathering of European Visit occasions (barring the majors and the World Golf Titles, which are co-authorized by the U.S.- based PGA Visit).
The award reserve was €3 million in 2015 and €3.5 million in 2016. It rose to US$7,000,000 in 2017 subsequent to joining the new Rolex Series.
