The 1994 Nabisco Dinah Shore was a women's professional golf tournament, held March 24–27 at Mission Hills Country Club in Rancho Mirage, California. This was the 23rd edition of the Nabisco Dinah Shore, and the twelfth as a major championship.

Tournament host Dinah Shore died of cancer a month earlier on February 24.[1] On the Tuesday of tournament week, it was announced that the LPGA had elected her an honorary member of its Hall of Fame.[2][3]

Donna Andrews won her only major title by a stroke over runner-up Laura Davies; a two-shot swing took place on the 72nd hole, as Andrews scored a birdie while Davies made bogey. She started the annual tradition by jumping into Poppie's Pond, which continues to now.[4][5] Andrews began the round with a one-stroke lead over Davies,[6] and both shot 70.
