The J Golf Phoenix LPGA International, in full the J Golf Phoenix LPGA International Presented by Mirassou Winery, was an annual golf tournament for professional female golfers on the LPGA Tour. Founded in 1980, it took place every year in the Phoenix, Arizona area through 2009, making it one of the longest lasting tournaments on the LPGA Tour before its demise after the 2009 season.

Tournament Golf Foundation managed the tournament since its start and continues to manage the Safeway Classic tournament on the LPGA Tour. Proceeds from the event were donated to local medical charities. Over $12 million was raised during the course of the tournament

The tournament had a variety of sponsors during its history, including Safeway Inc., a California-based supermarket chain.

It was at this tournament that Annika Sörenstam shot a round of 59 in 2001, which stands as the record for the lowest scoring round ever shot for 18 holes in an LPGA Tour event.
