The 1977 U.S. Women's Open Golf Championship was the 32nd U.S. Women's Open, held July 21–24 at Hazeltine National Golf Club in Chaska, Minnesota, a suburb southwest of Minneapolis.

Hollis Stacy won her first major championship and the first of her three U.S. Women's Open titles, two strokes ahead of runner-up Nancy Lopez, who had recently turned professional.[1][2]

Seven years earlier, Hazeltine had hosted the U.S. Open in 1970, which returned in 1991. The PGA Championship was played at the course in 2009.
