The 1988 Nabisco Dinah Shore was a women's professional golf tournament, held March 31 to April 3 at Mission Hills Country Club in Rancho Mirage, California. This was the 17th edition of the Nabisco Dinah Shore, and the sixth as a major championship.

Amy Alcott won the second of her three Dinah Shores, two strokes ahead of runner-up Colleen Walker.[3][4] With consecutive scores of 66 on Friday and Saturday, she entered the final round with a four-stroke lead.[5]

Alcott and caddy Bill Kurre started the tradition of jumping into "Poppie's Pond" upon winning.[3][4] After her third win 1991, they repeated the plunge, including tournament host Dinah Shore.[6] It was not fully embraced by others until 1994, when Donna Andrews made the leap, followed by Nanci Bowen the next year, and it became an annual tradition.[7][8]
