Antonio Garrido (born 2 February 1944 in Madrid) is a Spanish professional golfer.

Garrido played on the European Tour from its first official season in 1972 until 1995 and won five tournaments. His best year was 1977 when he finished third on the Order of Merit. That same season he teamed up with Seve Ballesteros to win the World Cup of Golf for Spain. Two years later the two Spaniards became the first Continental Europeans to play in the Ryder Cup. Garrido has played on the European Seniors Tour since 1994, and has won twice at that level.

Garrido's son Ignacio is a successful European Tour golfer, and in 1997 the Garridos became the second father and son combination to have played in the Ryder Cup after Percy and Peter Alliss. Antonio Garrido's younger brother German was also a European Tour golfer.
