A Golfer (Japanese: ゴルファー Golfer) is a type of Trainer class introduced in Generation VII whose main activity is playing golf. The female Golfers resemble Beauties holding golf clubs. They keep their Pokémon in Great Balls. In Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, they mainly specialize in spherical Flying-type Pokémon, possibly as a reference to golf balls.

When paired together in a Double Battle, two female Golfers are known as Golf Buddies.
