Annika Sörenstam shot a final round 68 (−2) to win the first of her three U.S. Women's Opens, one stroke ahead of Meg Mallon, the 54-hole leader and 1991 champion. Sörenstam started the final round at even-par 210, five strokes back in a tie for fourth place; the victory was the first of her ten major titles. The event was televised by ESPN and for the first time by NBC Sports.

Weather delays caused both of the first two rounds to be completed on the following day.

The low amateur was Sarah LeBrun Ingram at 294 (+14), who was seven months pregnant. Dawn Coe-Jones, six months pregnant, finished in a tie for seventh.

The 1995 edition was the first million dollar purse at the U.S. Women's Open, double that of 1990. It was only the fourth time the U.S. Women's Open was played in the western U.S. and the first ever in the Mountain Time Zone.

The East Course, at an average elevation of over 6,200 feet (1,890 m) above sea level, hosted the championship again sixteen years later in 2011. Cherry Hills Country Club, south of Denver, hosted in between in 2005.
