Below are all the winners in the history of the ANA Inspiration tournament, one of the five major championships on the LPGA Tour.

The ANA Inspiration dates to the early 1970s, when it debuted under the name Colgate Dinah Shore. The name of entertainer Dinah Shore was part of the tournament name until 1999, and some older LPGA players and fans still refer to this event as "the Dinah." More recently, it was called the Kraft Nabisco Championship, but All Nippon Airlines (ANA) became title sponsor in 2015.

The tournament was given major championship status beginning in 1983.
