Wendy Doolan (born 16 December 1968) is a former Australian professional golfer who played mainly on the U.S.-based LPGA Tour.

Doolan was born in Sydney, Australia. She started playing golf at the age of 14. In 1991 she was runner-up at the British Ladies Amateur and she turned professional later that year.

In the early years of her career, Doolan played in Asia and Europe and on the second tier Futures Tour in the United States. She tied for 21st at the 1995 LPGA Final Qualifying Tournament and has played on the LPGA Tour from 1996 to 2012. Her three victories on the Tour came at the 2001 LPGA Champions Classic, the 2003 Welch's/Fry's Championship and the 2004 Evian Masters. The Evian Masters, which is played in France, is the second richest event in women's golf after the U.S. Women's Open, and is recognised as a major championship by the Ladies European Tour. Her best finish in an LPGA major is a tie for seventh place at the 2001 U.S. Women's Open.

Doolan announced her retirement from competitive golf on 10 August 2012.[1]
