Carl Gustaf Creutz (1660−1728) was a Swedish general.

Carl Gustaf Creutz was the youngest son of Lorentz Creutz Sr. and Elsa Jacob Daughter Duwall.

He served as a page of Charles XI and experienced the Scanian War. By 1691 he was a captain in the Household Cavalry Regiment under Charles XII. The Great Northern War began in 1700 and Creutz landing in Zealand. He distinguished himself at the battles of Petschora and Kletsh (in present day Poland). Promotions to major and lieutenant colonel then came quickly. Creutz became a colonel in 1704. The Battle of Poltava in 1709 brought Creutz command of the entire cavalry. However, he had to surrender soon after Perevolotnya. After Count Piper's death, he was the senior Swedish prisoner in Russia, of which his extant correspondence bears visible witness. In 1722, he was able to return to Sweden and service in the cavalry.
