Malcolm G. Chace (12 March 1875 – 16 July 1955) was an American amateur tennis player whose highest ranking was US number 3 in 1895.
Chace was born in Valley Falls, Rhode Island and played for both Harvard and Yale. When he graduated from Yale in 1896, he also retired from tennis, but not before setting a record by winning the US Intercollegiate Singles and Doubles titles for three consecutive years (1893–95).
In July 1894 he won the Tuxedo tournament in New York defeating Clarence Hobart in the final in five sets. He successfully defended his title the following year when he was victorious against future seven-time U.S. Championship winner Bill Larned in straight sets.
Chace was inducted in the International Tennis Hall of Fame in 1961.
