Ángel Gallardo (born 29 July 1943) is a Spanish professional golfer.

Gallardo was a member of the European Tour from its first official season in 1972 until 1982. He finished in the top one hundred of the European Tour Order of Merit in each of those eleven seasons, with a best ranking of tenth in 1977. His only official European Tour win was the 1977 Italian Open, although he did win the Portuguese Open in 1967, five years before the tour was formally established. He also won his national open in 1970 and the 1971 Mexican Open.

Since leaving the tour, Gallardo has worked as a coach and as a golf course architect, with work that has included co-designing the PGA Golf de Catalunya, venue for the Spanish Open in 2009. He is currently vice-chairman of the European Tour.
