The Stanford International Pro-Am was a golf tournament for professional female golfers that was part of the LPGA Tour for one year only, in 2008. It was played at the Fairmont Turnberry Isle Resort & Club in Aventura, Florida.

The tournament was in the format of a pro-am, with 112 LPGA professionals and 112 amateurs. It was the first pro-am on the LPGA Tour since the 2001 Office Depot Pro-Am at the Doral Golf Resort & Spa. After 36 holes the field was cut to the top 70 professionals and top 20 teams, and after 54 holes only the professionals competed for the $2,000,000 purse. Play was on both the Soffer and Miller courses at the Fairmont Turnberry Isle Resort & Club.[1]

In November 2008, the LPGA and Stanford Financial announced that this event would not be held in 2009 and that Stanford would take over sponsorship of the year-end Tour Championship, moving the event from West Palm Beach, Florida to Houston, Texas.[2]
