Lindani Ndwandwe (born 26 February 1975) is a South African professional golfer.
Ndwandwe grew up in Nongoma, KwaZulu-Natal. He was introduced to the game by his brother Mandla who would use sticks and bottles as golf clubs and golf balls. He honed his skills as a caddie at Durban Country Club and Beachwood Golf Club.
In 1997, Ndwandwe won two elite amateur events, the Natal Match Play and Natal Stroke Play events. He turned pro two years later and qualified for the Sunshine Tour in 2000.
Ndwandwe won the 2001 Western Cape Classic by a stroke over Richard Kaplan. He was the second black man to win on the Sunshine Tour. He recorded a number of runner-up finishes through the decade but would not win again until the 2009 Highveld Classic.
