Jerry Anderson (born 22 September 1955) is a Canadian professional golfer.

Anderson was born in Montreal, Quebec and now resides in Cambridge, Ontario. He played on the European Tour for through most of the 1980s. In 1984 he won his only European Tour title, the Ebel European Masters – Swiss Open, by shooting a 27 under par total of 261, which was a record 72-hole score to par on the European Tour until Ernie Els shot a 29 under par score at the 2003 Johnnie Walker Classic. Anderson finished ninth on the European Tour Order of Merit in 1984, which was the only time he made the top fifty. He was a member of the U.S. based PGA Tour in 1990 and 1992, but made very little impact, missing the cut in most of the tournaments he played. He represented Canada at the Alfred Dunhill Cup in 1985 and at the World Cup in 1983, 1987, and 1989.
