List of women’s golf major championship winners by year

The five current women's major golf championships are currently played in the chronological order of The Chevron Championship in April, the Women's US Open in May/June, the Women's PGA Championship in June, The Evian Championship in July and the Women's Open Championship (British Open) in July/August.

In the history of women's professional golf, however, a total of eight tournaments have been considered majors.

Among the current majors, the US Women's Open began in 1946, with the Women's PGA Championship starting in 1955. The Chevron Championship became a major in 1983. The Women's British Open became a major in 2001, with The Evian Championship becoming a major in 2013.

These tournaments have not always been considered major championships. The Women's British Open was played 15 times before it became a major. The Evian was a regular tour event from 1994-2012. The Chevron Championship, which has had several names over the years, had been played for a decade before gaining major status.

Three other tournaments were majors at different points: the Titleholders Championship (1937-1972), the Women's Western Open (1930-1967) and the duMaurier Classic (1979-2000), which is now the CN Canadian Women's Open.

We have listed out the women's major championship winners by year, dating back to 1930. The tournaments were not always played in this order, so they are not in chronological order. Rather, they are situated by the current women's major championship calendar.

Since 1973, majors have been played continuously, save for the 2020 Evian Championship, which was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
