Dinesh Chand (born 6 February 1972) is a Fijian professional golfer who plays mainly on the Japan Golf Tour.

At the end of 2009, he lost his full playing rights for the Japan Golf Tour and so decided to play on the developmental Japan Challenge Tour in 2010. He won two events in a row which resulted in him regaining his full playing rights for the second half of the Japan Golf Tour season. He finished second at the 2010 Sun Chlorella Classic.

Chand has three wins on the Japan Golf Tour, and 2 on the Japan Challenge Tour.
