The world No 7 from China shot a closing 66 to land the $2m tournament, her third career title, with a closing 15-under total.
She began the day two strokes off the pace but soon closed that gap with four birdies in her first six holes.
Two more birdies at the 15th and 17th proved enough to hold off America's Gerina Piller by one shot - she carded a 69 to take second ahead of Pornanong Phatlum and fourth-placed Sandra Gal of Germany.
The third overnight leader, Natalie Gulbis, had a nightmare final day six bogeys, a double and a triple in a horrific round of 82 that dropped her into a tie for 29th place, 14 shots off the winner.
"I never thought I was going to win even though I was only two behind," Feng said. "All the people in the last two groups were strong competitors.
"I set a goal to finish 15-under par and that's what I was able to do. I'm really happy I'm at 15-under and I finally won.
"I set a goal early this year to win twice on the LPGA Tour this year. I hadn't won at all until I went to China. I left it to the last minute but I did it. I'm really happy. It means I can take a little more time off in the off season I guess."
