Maurice Bembridge (born 21 February 1945) is an English golfer.

Bembridge turned professional at an early age in 1960 and won the British Assistants’ Professional Championship in 1966 and 1967. He won nine top level professional tournaments in Europe, including six after the commencement of the modern European Tour in 1972, and he also won several tournaments in Africa and one in New Zealand. His best finish on the European Tour Order of Merit was second in 1973 when it was points-based (he finished eighth on the money list).

At the 1974 Masters Tournament, Bembridge tied the course record by shooting a 64 in the final round.

After turning fifty he played on the European Seniors Tour, winning twice at that level.

Bembridge played for Great Britain or Great Britain & Ireland in the Ryder Cup four times, winning five matches, losing eight and halving three. He also represented England in the World Cup twice.
