The J Golf Phoenix LPGA International, in full the J Golf Phoenix LPGA International Presented by Mirassou, is an annual golf tournament for professional female golfers on the LPGA Tour. Founded in 1980, it takes place every year in the Phoenix, Arizona area. Tournament Golf Foundation has managed the tournament since its start and also manages the Safeway Classic Tournament on the LPGA Tour.

Proceeds from the event are donated to local medical charities. To date, over $10 million has been raised.

The tournament has had a variety of sponsors during its history. Its most recent title sponsor was Safeway Inc., a California-based supermarket chain. At the end of the 2008 event, Safeway announced that it would no longer be sponsoring the event. The tournament continued to be managed by Portland, Oregon-based Tournament Golf Foundation and in February 2009 it was announced that J Golf, a division of JoongAng Broadcasting Corporation (JBC) will be the new title sponsor[1] and Mirassou Winery will be the presenting sponsor.[2]
