Golfer Fred Couples, fresh off his first tournament victory in three years, has put his desert home in La Quinta back on the market for $3.75 million, down from $3.95 million a year ago.

Sitting on about half an acre in the prestigious Madison Club, the Mediterranean villa-style home combines classic and contemporary elements. Details of note include decorative tilework, wrought iron chandeliers and massive stone fireplaces.

The roughly 5,200 square feet of living space includes a great room, a formal dining room, a media room and a chef’s kitchen with an oversized island. There are master suites on both floors, each with a fireplace and a private terrace, for a total of four bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms.


Pocket doors open to a tiled patio that surrounds a swimming pool and spa. Elsewhere, a vine-wrapped arcade overlooks the courtyard entry.

Nick Blodgett of Hideaway Properties holds the listing.

Couples, 57, a former Masters winner now playing on the seniors tour, followed up a second-place finish at the Mitsubishi Electric Championship in January with a win in the Chubb Classic in Naples, Fla., on Feb. 19. The golfer joined the PGA Tour in 1982 and the Champions Tour in 2010.

He bought the house seven years ago for $3.07 million, records show.
