Clive Anthony Clark (born 27 June 1945) is an English professional golfer.

Clark was in a three way tie for the Brabazon Trophy, and finished as runner-up to Michael Bonallack in both The Amateur Championship and the English Amateur in 1965. He was coached from the age of 13 by Sid Wilson at the North Cliff Golf Course in Scarborough, North Yorkshire. He turned professional after playing in the Walker Cup at the end of that year. Prior to the formation of the European Tour, he won several tournaments on the European circuit, including the John Player Trophy in 1970. He was also successful on the European Tour in its first few official seasons, finishing tenth on the European Tour Order of Merit in the tour's first official season in 1972. He was a member of the 1973 Great Britain & Ireland Ryder Cup team, but lost his only match. He left the European Tour in the late 1970s.

Clark has since worked as a commentator for the BBC and CBS, and as a golf course architect, often alongside fellow BBC golf analyst Peter Alliss. Clark has his golf course design company in Palm Desert, California and now resides in nearby La Quinta. His designs include Lake Winnipesaukee, Belgrade Lakes, Indian Wells Resort, The Hideaway, and Alcaidesa just outside Sotogrande, Spain.
