The new PGA TOUR 2K23 will be released on October 14th – and then there will be a course editor on board again. This has been given a number of improvements compared to the previous version.
With the Course Editor, you’ll be able to replenish PGA TOUR 2K23 yourself – or you can let the community do it. Either way: Virtual golfers will be able to look forward to a constant supply of new courses away from the main game.
If you feel called to do this and use the course editor yourself, you can look forward to numerous improvements compared to the previous version. The interface aims to provide better access to all design tools, a new cursor selection provides easier access to objects on the course.
There is also a new tool that will simplify the creation of walls and fences – even on sloping terrain. The previous tool for surfaces and for placing trees, flowers and natural elements in bulk has been improved.
Most of the trees previously seen in PGA TOUR 2K21 have been updated or rebuilt from the ground up to increase visual quality. There are also a number of new trees such as thuja and dogwood and an assortment of 12 new flowers including dahlias, geraniums, advent stars, roses and more to add to your own courses.
Using the Course Designer, community members have already created nearly 300,000 unique courses for the previous PGA TOUR 2K21, producing an ever-growing amount of content for all players to enjoy. PGA TOUR 2K23 aims to take the relationship with the course designer community to the next level by including a selection of fan-made courses at launch. These include the following content creators and their courses:
- ArcticFury – Craggy Heights, Sherwood Shores und Training Facility;
- b101design – Lachlan Crossing und Emery Beach Club;
- Crazycanuck1985 – Old Marina Golf Club and Echo Park Golf Club;
- Energy – Lone Grove Golf Course und Jacobson Homestead;
- Mattf27 – Foxholm Golf Links und Chestnut Hollow;
- VctryLnSprts – PotHole Lake Golf Club und HuckleBerry Country Club.
In addition to the Course Editor, the casual multiplayer modes Divot Derby and Three-Hole Matchmaking also return, allowing entire crews to compete against their friends and others from around the world. In Divot Derby, up to 20 players compete against each other in a race to the tee. Whoever makes it to the ninth and final hole first wins! If you are eliminated early, you can watch the rest of the game in spectator mode. Three Hole Matchmaking is an online multiplayer mode designed for new ways of playing, with shorter game times and increased intensity.
