The 1983 Nabisco Dinah Shore was a women's professional golf tournament played from March 31 to April 3 at Mission Hills Country Club in Rancho Mirage, California. It was the 12th edition of what is now called the Kraft Nabisco Championship and was its first year as a major championship.
Amy Alcott won the third of her five major titles, two strokes ahead of runners-up Kathy Whitworth and Beth Daniel, the leader after each of the first three rounds. Alcott won the title again in 1988 and 1991.
It was the richest tournament in women's golf in 1983; the $400,000 purse was double that of the U.S. Women's Open. The final round attendance in 1983 was over 20,000, and this was the first year that amateurs were invited; two made the cut and future major winner Kathy Baker was the low amateur.
