Esteban Toledo (born 10 September 1962) is a Mexican professional golfer, who was a member of the PGA Tour in 1994 and 1998–2004 and has also spent many years playing on the second tier Nationwide Tour. At present, he competes on the PGA Tour Champions.

Toledo was born in Mexicali, Mexico. Before taking up professional golf, Toledo was a boxer.[1]

His sole victory on the Nationwide Tour came at the 2005 Lake Erie Charity Classic at Peek 'n Peak Resort. He also won the 2000 Mexican Open. He represented Mexico in the World Cup in 1992, 1994, 1995, 1998, 2002 and 2006.

In May 2013, Toledo became the first Mexican to win on the Champions Tour, winning the Insperity Championship in a playoff.[2] Toledo has since won an additional three times on the Champions Tour at the 2013 Montreal Championship, 2015 Nature Valley First Tee Open at Pebble Beach and 2016 Allianz Championship.

Toledo's life and career is the subject of the book Tin Cup Dreams by Michael D'Antonio.
