Andre Pierre Stolz (born 10 May 1970) is an Australian professional golfer.

Stolz was born in Brisbane, Australia. He turned professional in 1992. He has played on the PGA Tour of Australasia, Japan Golf Tour (2001), Nationwide Tour (2003), and PGA Tour (2004–05).

In 2003, he won the LaSalle Bank Open on the Nationwide Tour and finished 13th on the money list, earning his PGA Tour card for 2004. On the PGA Tour, he won the 2004 Michelin Championship at Las Vegas with a stroke victory over Tag Ridings, securing his card through 2006. However, an injury to his left wrist in 2005 halted his career.[1] After taking three years off, Stolz went back to playing, competing in his native Australia, Asia, and the Nationwide Tour. In 2011, he led the OneAsia Tour's Order of Merit with two wins.[2] Stolz also played two events on the PGA Tour, his first on the tour since 2005.

In 2013, Andre and Zac became the first father-son duo since 1979 (Gary and Wayne Player) to compete at the Australian Open.[3] In 2013, Zac started playing collegiately at Chattanooga.
