Golf Magazine Presents 36 Great Holes Starring Fred Couples is a golf video game for the Sega 32X. The game features Fred Couples on the cover and is sponsored by Golf Magazine. It was released in 1994 in the North America, Japan, and Europe regions.

The game uses 12 male and 12 female players, and is set at 27 golfcourses around the USA.

Reception[edit]

In Japan, Famitsu gave the game a score of 23 out of 40.[1] In North America, GamePro recommended the game "for thinking golfers who love to experiment", praising the wide range of options and the detailed course graphics, though they criticized the difficult shooting controls and the unclear overhead maps.[2] A reviewer for Next Generation, while assessing it as a decent golf simulation with good features, concluded that Golf Magazine Presents 36 Great Holes Starring Fred Couples "is just another golf sim without the depth of EA's PGA series, and, to top it off, the graphics just aren't that impressive for a 32-bit game. The only thing here that hasn't been seen before is the massive 15 syllable title." He gave it three out of five stars.[3]
