Haydn Porteous (born 8 July 1994) is a South African professional golfer.

Porteous won many amateur tournaments in South Africa, including the South African Stroke Play in 2012 and 2013. He was the top-ranked South African player when he turned professional in 2013.[1][2]

Porteous has played on the Sunshine Tour and the Challenge Tour. He won the 2015 Barclays Kenya Open on the Challenge Tour.[1][2]

In January 2016, Porteous won his maiden European Tour title with a two-stroke victory at the Joburg Open.[3] This was a co-sanctioned event with the Sunshine Tour. Following Brandon Stone's win the previous week, Porteous' win was the second consecutive European Tour win by a South African first-time winner.
