Grégory Bourdy (born 25 April 1982) is a French professional golfer who competes on the European Tour.

Bourdy was born in Bordeaux. He turned professional in 2003. His cousin Nicolas Beaufils is also a professional golfer, who has played on the Challenge Tour.

Bourdy has played on the European Tour full-time since 2005, having previously competed on the second-tier Challenge Tour. Bourdy won his first European Tour event on 28 October 2007 at the Mallorca Classic. That win helped him to finish 39th on the European Tour's Order of Merit list, the first time he had broken the top 100. He has been the highest ranked French golfer on the Official World Golf Rankings.

Bourdy also has three victories on the Alps Tour, one of Europe's third-tier development tours, between 2003 and 2005, and won the South African PGA Championship on the Sunshine Tour in 2006. Bourdy was also a member of the French team who finished in 2nd place at the 2002 Eisenhower Trophy.

In November 2009, Bourdy held off the challenge of Rory McIlroy to win the UBS Hong Kong Open by two strokes.[1]
