Steve Gotsche (born August 24, 1961) is an American professional golfer who played on the PGA Tour and the Nationwide Tour.

Gotsche joined the PGA Tour in 1994, earning his Tour card through qualifying school. In his rookie year he recorded the best PGA Tour finish of his career, a fifth place finish at the New England Classic. He didn't play well enough to retain his Tour card but earned his card through qualifying school for the second time. After an unsuccessful year on Tour, he joined the Nationwide Tour in 1996. He only played in three events from 1997 to 1998 but rejoined the Tour in 1999. That was his breakthrough year on Tour, winning the NIKE Monterrey Open and the NIKE Upstate Classic en route to a 15th place finish on the money list, good enough for a PGA Tour card for 2000. In his return to the PGA Tour he didn't play well enough to retain his card. He played on the Nationwide Tour in 2001 and 2002.
