Vicki Goetze-Ackerman (born October 17, 1972) is an American professional golfer.

Goetze was born in American Junior Golf Association. In 1989 she was still only 16 years old when she defeated Brandie Burton to become the third youngest winner in the history of the U.S. Women's Amateur at the Pinehurst Country Club, in Pinehurst, North Carolina. She was named the 1989 Titleist/Golfweek Amateur Player of the Year.

Enrolled at the NCAA golfing champion. That year she defeated Annika Sörenstam to win her second U.S. Women Amateur becoming the first teenager to ever hold both the NCAA and U.S. Women's Amateur championships simultaneously. She was a member of the U.S. Curtis Cup team and the U.S. team at the 1990 and 1992 Espirito Santo Trophy. In 1991 and 1992 she earned her second and third Titleist/Golfweek Amateur Player of the Year award. She was awarded the Honda-Broderick Cup in 1992, recognizing her as the National Player of the Year and was also named the National Player of the Year in 1993 by the National Golf Coaches Association. Goetze was also honored as an All-American in 1992 and 1993.

Goetze joined the LPGA Tour in 1994. Although she has been competitive and twice was runner-up at the LPGA Corning Classic, Goetze has not achieved the same level of success as she had as an amateur and has yet to win an LPGA tournament. She married Jim Ackerman in 1997 and in 2005 gave birth to their first child, son Jacob Aiden Ackerman.
