Paul Wesselingh (born 11 October 1961) is an English professional golfer who plays on the European Senior Tour.

Wesselingh was born in Liverpool. He turned professional in 1985 but opted for a career as a club professional rather than attempting a touring career, due to his desire to stay close to his young family. His club career culminated in a position as senior professional at Kedleston Park Golf Club in Derbyshire, where he succeeded former European Tour player David J Russell. During this stage of his career, Wesselingh won the European Club Professionals Championship, played three times in The Open Championship and played on three GB&I teams against the USA in the PGA Cup.[1]

Upon turning 50 in 2011, Wesselingh opted to play on the European Senior Tour, coming through the qualifying school at the end of that year. He was runner-up in his first tournament, and claimed his first win three events later at the ISPS Handa PGA Seniors Championship.[2] Wesselingh defended the ISPS Handa PGA Seniors Championship in 2013, winning by four strokes for his second win on the seniors tour.
