Michael Goodfellow (born 8 October 1988) is a Scottish curler who currently throws lead rocks for the Ross Paterson rink.

As a youth, Goodfellow played in two Winter Universiades, one in 2009 and 2011. He played lead at the 2009 Winter Universiade for the British team, skipped by John Hamilton. They finished 7th. He was the British alternate at the 2011 Winter Universiade, on a team skipped by Glen Muirhead that finished 4th. Despite being the team's alternate, he played in 8 round robin games.

On the World Curling Tour, Goodfellow played lead for Jamie Dick for 2008–09 before joining with Muirhead for 2009–10 to play lead for him. He joined the Tom Brewster rink in 2010 and has played lead for Brewster ever since, although now David Murdoch skips the team.

With Brewster, Goodfellow won three straight Scottish championships between 2011 and 2013. With the team, he won silver medals at the 2011 Ford World Men's Curling Championship and 2012 World Men's Curling Championship and a bronze medal at the 2013 Ford World Men's Curling Championship with Murdoch as skip. Goodfellow has also played in one European Curling Championship, playing alternate for the Brewster-led Scottish team at the 2012 European Curling Championships. The team finished 7th, and Goodfellow would play in 7 games.

February 2014 saw Goodfellow make his Team GB Winter Olympic debut at the Sochi 2014 games alongside David Murdoch, Tom Brewster, Scott Andrews and Greg Drummond. The team took bronze at the 2013 European Championships.[1]
