The Maybank Malaysian Open was a men's professional golf tournament. The tournament ran on the European and Asian Tours. Since its inauguration in 1962, there has never been a Malaysian winner. The tournament started in 1962 as an Asian Tour event but it did not join the European Tour until 1999.

The tournament was first sanctioned by the European Tour in 1999, as part of its expansion into Asia, which began in 1989. The 2012 event was held at the Kuala Lumpur Golf & Country Club with a prize fund of US$2.5 million.[1] Former winners include former World Number 1, Vijay Singh, and European Ryder Cup star, Lee Westwood and the 2010 Open Championship winner Louis Oosthuizen. Another notable other winner was 17 year old Matteo Manassero from Italy in 2011.

The event has not been staged since 2015. The final champion was India's Anirban Lahiri. This was his first ever win on the European Tour and it was his sixth win on the Asian Tour. It was played at the Kuala Lumpur G&CC .
