Steven O'Hara (born 17 July 1980) is a Scottish professional golfer.

O'Hara was born in Bellshill, and started playing golf at 7 years of age at Calderbraes Golf Club before moving to Colville Park GC. He had a successful amateur career which included winning the Scottish Amateur in 2000 and the St Andrews Links Trophy in 2001. He turned professional in 2001 after being a member of the first Great Britain and Ireland team to retain the Walker Cup alongside future stars such as Luke Donald and Graeme McDowell.[1][2] Since earning his card at qualifying school at the end of 2003, he has competed on the European Tour, except for 2008 when he dropped down to the second tier Challenge Tour.

O'Hara failed to regain his full playing rights on the European Tour for 2013 and failed to qualify for the final stages of Q-School.
