Hall of Fame golfer Fred Couples, who last week finished tied for eighth at the Invesco QQQ Championship in Thousand Oaks, has listed his home in Newport Beach for sale at $3.749 million.

Built in 1998, the single-story house features 3,800 square feet, vaulted ceilings and arched French doors. The living room and formal dining room access outdoor space with a dining patio and fireplace. A breakfast nook and family room sit off the center-island kitchen.

A total of five bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms include a master suite with a fireplace, sitting area and walk-in closet. There’s also an office.


The property, in the Big Canyon golf community, previously changed hands five years ago for $3.475 million, records show.

Lindsay Bibb and Natalie Raney of Villa Real Estate hold the listing.

Couples, 60, has won 15 times on the PGA Tour, including a Masters Tournament victory in 1992. Since joining the senior golf tour in 2010, he has tallied 13 Champions titles.

He was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 2013.
