HB Studios’ The Golf Club games have admirably filled the void left by the absence of EA Sport’s long-running Tiger Woods series for years now. But it was only when the PGA Tour license was secured for 2018’s The Golf Club Featuring PGA Tour–the first in the series to be published by 2K Sports–that real courses began to make their way into the experience. The latest game in the franchise has adopted the standard naming convention of 2K Sports titles and will make better use of the PGA Tour license. PGA Tour 2K21 is out now on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC, and Stadia. It’s available to pre-order now in two editions, and you can also still snag a bonus for pre-ordering early.
We awarded the golf sim an 8/10 in our PGA Tour 2K21 review. “PGA Tour 2K21 improves on the mostly stellar foundation of The Golf Club series, offering the most realistic and pure golf experience in a game to date,” I wrote. “There are still some minor annoyances that can temporarily take you out of the experience, but it offers a closer approximation of the actual PGA Tour schedule and a relaxing, streamlined approach to MyPlayer. For the most part, PGA Tour 2K21 admirably captures the peculiar magic of the game of golf.”
PGA Tour 2K21 includes 15 real courses/tournaments in the race to the FedEx Cup along with a great new MyPlayer progression system. While real PGA Tour stars–such as cover athlete Justin Thomas–are technically in the game, you cannot play as them. Instead, you compete against them throughout the career mode via rivalries and watch cutaways featuring their shots.
Outside of the robust career mode, PGA Tour 2K21 also brings back Online Societies and the popular course designer, so you can create your own designs and compete against the rest of the community. Check out where to pick up the game below. While the pre-order bonuses are no longer available, you can still pick up the Digital Deluxe edition, which comes with some extra goodies.
