The 2001 Nabisco Championship was a women's professional golf tournament, held March 22–25 at Mission Hills Country Club in Rancho Mirage, California. This was the thirtieth edition of the Kraft Nabisco Championship, and the nineteenth as a major championship.

Annika Sörenstam shot a final round 69 to win the first of her three titles at this event, three strokes ahead of five runners-up; it was the third of her ten major titles.[2][3] She won eight times on tour in 2001 and this was the third in a streak of four consecutive; she successfully defended this title the following year.
