Ian David Garbutt (born 3 April 1972) is an English professional golfer.

Garbutt was born in Doncaster. He started playing golf at the age of 8, and by the age of 16, he had become a scratch player. He won the English Amateur at the age of 18, defeating Gary Evans in the final.[1]

Garbutt turned professional in 1992, and played on the European and Challenge Tours, sometimes splitting his time between both, until the end of 2008. Having lost his place on the European Tour at the end of the season, he retired from tournament golf early the following year to take up a position with sports management group ISM.[2]

In 1996, Garbutt finished top of the Challenge Tour Rankings, after winning the UAP Grand Final.[3]
