PGA Tour 2K23 Course Designer Upgrades Unveiled

Today 2K released their third installment of the clubhouse, providing us more news as we get closer and closer to launch.

This time it’s all about embracing the community and course designing.


Course Designer received the following upgrades in 2K23:

  • Interface has been overhauled to provide smoother access to all design tools.
  • New cursor selection offers easier access to objects on the course.
  • New spline tool streamlines the process of creating walls and fences, including on sloped terrain, improving on the previous tool that was used for surfaces and bulk-planting trees, flowers, and natural elements.
  • Majority of trees previously featured in PGA TOUR 2K21 have been updated or rebuilt from scratch to improve the visual quality, and a variety of new trees, including arborvitae and dogwood, and an assortment of twelve new flowers including dahlias, geraniums, poinsettias, poppies, roses, and more have been introduced to deck out custom courses.

But on top of all that, they have worked with some of the best community designers to have new courses created by them ready to go at launch. It’s really awesome to see developers embracing the fans like that. There have been 13 courses designed by 6 different designers for you to sample right off the bat at launch on October 14th.

In addition to the return of Course Designer, casual multiplayer mode Divot Derby and three-hole matchmaking return to keep entire crews of players competitive with their friends and other players across the globe. Divot Derby pits up to 20 players against one another in a race to the tee. The first golfer to make it to the ninth and final hole wins! Players who get knocked out early can watch the rest of the competition in Spectator Mode. Three-hole matchmaking is an online multiplayer mode designed to offer new ways to play, with shorter play times and dialed up intensity. Both modes encourage players of all skill levels to jump in and knock out a quick game or two when they don’t have time for a full 18 holes.
