It also invites you to excursions to the Land of Dreams and offers an island restoration service for the first time.

2K announced details on cutting-edge mapping technology that brings tournament players club (TPC) courses to life in PGA TOUR 2K21. The forward-looking course mapping process ensures incredibly realistic and precise game environments, the technology behind it is shown in a new trailer with the TPC course East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta. Each course was created by HB Studios’ golf fanatical developers in a process that spanned several months, starting with the partnership with Terra Imaging to capture and process aerial drone material for each course. The drones record almost every detail of the real, complicated course up to the centimeter, the data is then converted into 3D images, with which the developers at HB Studios recreate the courses in the game. This process ensures that players feel every slope of the green and every raised tee box, just like the PGA TOUR pros do in real tournaments.
