Satoshi Kodaira (小平 智, Kodaira Satoshi, born 11 September 1989) is a Japanese professional golfer who plays on the PGA Tour and Japan Golf Tour.

While playing on the Japan Golf Tour, Kodaira has had seven victories, including two Japan Golf Tour majors, the 2013 Japan Golf Tour Championship Shishido Hills and the 2015 Japan Open. He has also won once on the Japan Challenge Tour in 2012.

In April 2018, Kodaira won the RBC Heritage, for his first victory on the PGA Tour, in just his 15th start. Players ranked in the world top 50 are automatically invited to that tournament, and Kodaira had been in the top 50 for most of the year. He came from six strokes behind in the final round and posted a five-under 66 to sit in the clubhouse at −12, well before the leading groups finished. Kim Si-woo, who had the lead, faltered on the remaining holes and fell back into a playoff with Kodaira. Both players parred the first two extra holes, before Kodaira holed a 25-foot putt for birdie to win on the third extra hole. The win lifted Kodaira to a career high 27th in the world rankings.
