The 1989 LPGA Championship was held May 30 to June 2 at Jack Nicklaus Golf Center at Kings Island in Mason, Ohio, a suburb northeast of Cincinnati. Played on the Grizzly Course,[1] this was the 35th edition of the LPGA Championship.

Nancy Lopez shot a final round 66 (−6) for 274 (−14), three strokes ahead of runner-up Ayako Okamoto, the third round leader.[3][4]

It was the last of three major titles for Lopez; all came on the Grizzly Course at the LPGA Championship.[1]
