The 2017 Ricoh Women's British Open was played 3–6 August in Scotland at Kingsbarns Golf Links in Fife. It was the 41st Women's British Open, the 17th as a major championship on the LPGA Tour, and the first at Kingsbarns, southeast of nearby St Andrews.

This was the first WBO organised by The R&A, which merged with the Ladies' Golf Union in late 2016.[1]

The event was televised by Golf Channel and NBC Sports in the United States and Sky Sports in the United Kingdom.
