Golf Magazine: 36 Great Holes Starring Fred Couples, called Golf Magazine Presents 36 Great Holes Starring Fred Couples on the boxart and in Sega of Japan's archive, is a golf game developed by Flashpoint Productions and published by Sega exclusively for the Sega 32X.

The player controls one of 24 professional golfers playing in 27 famous US golf courses. As the name suggests, there are 36 holes. Fred Couples is playable in the game and does commentary.

Both Sega Mega-CD and Sega Mega-CD 32X versions of the game were once planned, but cancelled.
