Mark Brown (born 9 February 1975) is a New Zealand professional golfer.

Brown was born in Lower Hutt. He had played golf on the PGA Tour of Australasia, the Canadian Tour and the Asian Tour without much success until 2007 when he had four top-ten finishes on the Asian Tour and finished 15th on the Order of Merit.

In 2008, he won his first Asian Tour event at the SAIL Open Golf Championship at Jaypee Greens in India. The following week he won the Johnnie Walker Classic, which was also held in India and was co-sanctioned by the European Tour and the PGA Tour of Australasia. This victory propelled Brown to 64th in the Official World Golf Ranking and he became the highest ranked golfer from New Zealand. He finished 2008 by winning the PGA Tour of Australasia's Order of Merit.

Brown will play on the Web.com Tour in 2014 after earning his tour card through qualifying school.

Brown is often confused with Mark Brown, a club professional from the United States who has played in several PGA Championships since 2000.
