The 2015 KPMG Women's PGA Championship was the 61st Women's PGA Championship, held June 11-14 at Westchester Country Club in Harrison, New York, a suburb northeast of New York City.

The 2015 edition saw major changes to the event, due to a new partnership between the LPGA and the PGA of America. The event was renamed from the "LPGA Championship" to the "Women's PGA Championship" (making it a sister event to the men's PGA Championship), and its purse was increased from $2.25 million to $3.5 million. KPMG also became the new title sponsor of the event, replacing Wegmans.[1]
