Course Overview Trailer Deep Dive
We know that 30 courses will be available from the launch of EA Sports PGA Tour and we have just got a look at some of them in fine detail via the Couse Overview Trailer!
The Trailer gives us a deep dive into the creation of some of the courses in the game, which look ultra-realistic and should transport you into the action.

EA Sports PGA Tour The Majors
Exclusive to EA Sports PGA Tour will be all four of The Majors, and this means that some of golf's most prestigious courses will only be available in EA's new game.
The Masters, the U.S. Open, the PGA Championship, and The Open will all be available to play upon release.
The home of golf, St Andrews Old Course is arguably golf's most famous course and will offer a true sense of nostalgia for golf fans.
However, Augusta National is where we are most looking forward to playing as it is host to some of the world's most infamous holes!
EA believes that EA Sports PGA Tour will be the most realistic golf game ever.
EA SPORTS PGA TOUR will also present the most realistic visuals in any golf game utilizing EA’s Frostbite engine.
Using state-of-the-art equipment such as drone technology, custom LiDAR flight helicopters and more to develop terrain maps, EA SPORTS PGA TOUR depicts courses exactly as they appear in real life.
The photogrammetry and scanners were also applied to create precise renderings of clubhouses, iconic vegetation, bridges, tee markers, rock formations, and other on-course elements offering players life-like visual experiences of their favorite courses.
We can't wait to see this in action!
It's not just the visuals that will bring the classy courses to life in EA Sports PGA Tour, but also the ball behaviour.
Generating an accurate feel for the different courses was an important part of the process for the design team, with factors impacting the height of a ball’s bounce, the speed of its roll, the impact on ball spin, and the launch of the ball.
Everything from the speed and firmness of the fairway to the length of the first cut has been taken into account, and you will also feel how your ball behaves differently in the air at different altitudes, so courses above sea level will see balls go further than those on the coast!
