Ōta Sukeyoshi (太田 資愛?, 1739 – March 17, 1805) was the 2nd daimyō of Kakegawa Domain in Tōtōmi Province, (modern-day Shizuoka Prefecture) in mid-Edo period Japan and a high-level office holder within the Tokugawa shogunate.
Ōta Sukeyoshi was the second son of Ōta Suketoshi, the daimyō of Kakegawa Domain. Under Shogun Tokugawa Ieharu, he was appointed as Sōshaban (Master of Ceremonies) in 1768 and Jisha-bugyō in 1755. He rose to the position of Wakadoshiyori (Junior Councilor) from 1781. As daimyō of Kakegawa, he invited the noted Neo-Confucian scholar Matsuzaka Kōdō to reside in his domain. In 1789, Sukeyoshi was appointed Kyoto Shoshidai, the Shogunate’s official representative to the Court in Kyoto. In 1793, Sukeyoshi rose to the position of Rōjū (Senior Councilor) to the infant Shogun Tokugawa Ienari, a position he held until 1801.
Sukeyoshi died on March 17, 1805. His grave is at the Ōta clan temple of Myōhokke-ji in Mishima, Shizuoka.
