Fred Couples works with Gene Bates and their course in California, San Juan Oaks, is a decent effort. Given his popularity there will be more signature projects to come Fred Couples’s way, and we hope for the sake of the industry that Bates and Couples focus on strategic, original and interesting design rather than the formulaic principals of competing signature firms.

This design team has its strengths, but is clearly not suited to every development. Contact Global Golf Group for advice and further information.
