Antonio Garrido (born 2 February 1944) is a Spanish professional golfer.


Garrido played on the European Tour from its first official season in 1972 until 1995 and won five tournaments. His best year was 1977 when he finished third on the Order of Merit. That same season he teamed up with Seve Ballesteros to win the World Cup of Golf for Spain. Two years later the two Spaniards became the first Continental Europeans to play in the Ryder Cup. Garrido has played on the European Seniors Tour since 1994, and has won twice at that level.
