PGA TOUR 2K21 bringing TPC courses to life with revolutionary mapping tech

Today, American video game publisher 2K revealed the details behind the state-of-the-art cartographic technology and the process used to bring the Tournament Players Club (TPC) courses to life in their golfing sim PGA TOUR 2K21. The futuristic Course Mapping process offers incredibly realistic and accurate in-game course environments, and the technology is fully reflected in a new trailer featuring TPC course East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta.

It took golf fanatics and developers at HB Studios several months to build each course. It starts by partnering with Terra Imaging to capture and process detailed aerial drone footage of each one. The drones capture nearly every real-life detail of these intricate courses, down to one centimeter of accuracy, and then convert the data to 3D images for HB Studios developers to recreate in-game. This process ensures that players feel every break in the green and elevated tee box that PGA TOUR professionals face in real tournaments.

The 15 PGA TOUR 2K21 in-game, licensed TPC courses include:

  • Atlantic Beach Country Club
  • Copperhead Course
  • East Lake Golf Club
