The 2003 U.S. Women's Open Golf Championship was the 58th U.S. Women's Open, held July 3–7 at the Witch Hollow course of Pumpkin Ridge Golf Club near North Plains, Oregon, northwest of Portland.

Hilary Lunke won her only major title in an 18-hole Monday playoff over Angela Stanford and Kelly Robbins, and became the first qualifier to win the championship.[3] The three Americans finished the fourth round at 283 (−1), one stroke ahead of two-time champion Annika Sörenstam, who bogeyed the par-5 72nd hole after putting her tee shot in the fairway.[4][5][6][7] The last playoff was five years earlier in 1998 and it had been sixteen years since three players were involved. In the playoff round, all three players birdied the final (90th) hole, and Lunke clinched the title by one stroke over Stanford.[1][8][9]

This was the second U.S. Women's Open at the Witch Hollow course; it hosted six years earlier in 1997, won by Alison Nicholas. It was also the site of the U.S. Amateur in 1996, the third straight victory by 20-year-old Tiger Woods in his final competition as an amateur.
