The Moss Creek Women's Invitational was a golf tournament on the LPGA Tour from 1976 to 1985.[1][2] It was played at the Moss Creek Plantation on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina.

When the tournament was first announced in January 1976 it was titled the Ladies Masters and sponsors said they would pattern the event similar to the Masters Tournament.[3] A little over a month later the LPGA announced the tournament's name was being changed to the Women's International.[4] This happened after Masters Tournament officials contacted the tournament's sponsor and threatened to go to court unless the word Masters was removed from the tournament title.[5]

Sally Little, an eventual winner of 15 LPGA tournaments including two major championships, won the inaugural Women's International by one shot over Jan Stephenson after holing out from a sand trap on the tournament's 72nd hole.[6] It was Little's first win as a professional golfer.
