Christoph Joseph Günther (born 22 July 1975) is a German professional golfer who plays on the Challenge Tour and the EPD Tour.

Günther was born in Göttingen. He has mainly played on the EPD Tour since turning professional in 1995. He has won eight times on the EPD Tour between 2001 and 2008.

Günther won his first tournament on the Challenge Tour in 2009 at the Kärnten Golf Open. He entered the final round five strokes behind the leader but shot a fantastic final round of 62 (-10) to win by a stroke.[1] The win put him into a good position to finish high enough on the Challenge Tour's 2009 money list to earn a European Tour card for 2010.
