Guy Lewis Hunt (born 17 January 1947) is an English professional golfer.

Hunt was born in Bishop's Stortford, Hertfordshire. He turned professional as a sixteen-year-old in 1963. He finished second on the Order of Merit in the first official season of the European Tour in 1972, having had eleven top ten finishes. He also made the top twenty three times after that, in 1974, 1975 and 1977. His sole European Tour win came at the 1977 Dunlop Masters. He played on the 1975 Ryder Cup team.
