Terry R. Gale (born 7 June 1946) is an Australian professional golfer.

Gale had a successful amateur career before turning professional at a relatively advanced age in 1976. From the mid-1970s to the early 1990s he won regularly on the PGA Tour of Australasia, the Japan Golf Tour and the pre-Asian Tour Asian circuit. Since turning fifty he has been a member of the European Seniors Tour, where he has won seven tournaments. His best season on that tour was 2003, when he finished third on the Order of Merit. He also plays on the Japanese Seniors Tour.

Off the course, Gale was the second Chairman of the PGA Tour of Australasia. His son, Mark Gale was a professional Australian rules footballer. Gale Sr was also a talented cricketer in his youth, representing his state on occasion, although never at First Class level.
