Is this sentence correct ? That couple has a big difference of age. He's 59 years old and she's only 28.

You may also say: Their age difference is huge, or, their age gap is big.

That sentence sound incorrect/unnatural. This is better: That couple has a big age difference. OR That couple has a big age gap. Hope this helps!

It sounds good to me. I have found a few other terms that may describe this "difference of age": "(big) age difference" https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/what-is-the-best-age-difference-for-husband-and-wife/ "(wide) age gap" https://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/age-gap-relationship-ideal-years-different-love-last-longevity-emmanuel-macron-brigitte-a7729616.html
