Peter Dawson (born 9 May 1950) is an English professional golfer.

Dawson was born in Doncaster. He was a member of the European Tour in the 1970s and won his sole European Tour title at the 1975 Double Diamond Strokeplay. However his most consistent season by far was 1977, when he finished seventh on the European Tour Order of Merit, that being the only time he made the top thirty. He played in the 1977 Ryder Cup, becoming the first left-handed European to play in the competition. He also represented England in the World Cup that year.

Since leaving the European Tour in 1981 he has worked as a club professional in France, before going on to coach the national teams in Denmark (where his students included Thomas Bjørn), Switzerland and Morocco. After turning fifty he played several seasons on the European Seniors Tour, but without success.
