    Well, "coming soon" starts tomorrow...per the PGA 2K21 twitter account, the list of real life, licensed golf courses will start being released then.
    We already know at least 9 of the courses from previous videos they released, but it still seems they're going to do a full roll out like they did with PGA Pros that are in-game. Seems the full list will take them several days to get through, then...
    Here are the 9 courses/tournaments that had been shown previously:
  2. 3M Open at TPC Twin Cities
  3. Valero Texas Open at The Oaks Course at TPC San Antonio
  4. Zurich Classic of New Orleans at TPC Lousiana
  5. John Deere Classic at TPC Deere Run
  6. The Players at TPC Sawgrass
  7. The Tour Championship at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta
  8. Waste Management Phoenix Open at TPC Scottsdale
  9. Valspar Championship at the Copperhead Course at Innisbrook Resort and Golf Club in Palm Harbor, Florida
  10. The Genesis Invitational at the Riviera Country Club in suburban Los Angeles

  11. And to think, they had a teaser, that led up to today's teaser about the course revelation process starting tomorrow!? This isn't going to play well to the "show me some gameplay" guy though :)
    You know they gotta have TPC Southwind, TPC Summerlin, and TPC Boston in there. I'm hoping you're right with your prediction of Victoria National.

    Any hope for Augusta, or my local, Royal Melbourne?

    Zero chance on Augusta, but most anything else is probably fair game.
    Maybe we'll get 1-2 second snippets of gameplay during the course reveals? Sad what we're resorting to just to see this darn game in action. You'd think they were intentionally keeping it a secret or something.....
    Steve_OS
    I would think Atlantic Beach Country Club has to be one as well.

    My thought is that Atlantic Beach CC will be in the game as well, but I also wonder if Victoria National Golf Club will make it in, too. It replaced ABCC as the host of the Korn Ferry Tour Championship. It would be cool if they both were in, but I'd expect at least ABCC making a return.

    Hoping for Pebble Beach and St. Andrews

    You'll likely have to rely on user created versions of these courses, which are actually pretty amazing. The issue is, they won't appear in 2K21 until the person who created them in TGC 2019 ports them over after the game releases.
    I'm with you, though..."official" Pebble or St. Andrews would be excellent.

    Hoping for Pebble Beach and St. Andrews

    Doubt we will ever see a license course for those in a game, it will have to be a knockoff by a course creator. When TGC2019 was announced, somebody asked about Pebble Beach. I remember one of the top guy at HB answering that they inquired and it was not sustainable for them, it was too expensive. Small budget for the few games they're selling.
    Well, there's a bit of an unexpected one...but I guess it is a TPC course, so it shouldn't be all that surprising.
    Also...a one-by-one release of these courses? We already know 2/3 of them! Yet let's string this out for no real reason. Sigh...
    MrArlingtonBeach

    It wasn't flattered by that compressed, 720p video. I hope they'll have some high quality, hi-res images from these last 6 courses somewhere else.
    Also...a one-by-one release of these courses? We already know 2/3 of them! Yet let's string this out for no real reason. Sigh...

    I know... it just seems so unnecessarily painful doesn't it? I just wonder how many potential buyers are hanging on for these remaining courses to be announced? It hardly registers on my G/A/S radar!?
    One thing that is really annoying me right now is how HB Studios and/or 2K is (not) handling the barrage of questions they're getting on all fronts about PS5 compatibility. They don't even friggin' acknowledge the question, let alone answer it with a "we'll get back to you when we have a final answer on it" response. That would show that you're trying to work for the biggest stride possible with it, but you can't speak to it conclusively at this time.
    Was pumped for this game when it was announced, but looks like I'll pass. There is nothing jumping out that says I must have this game.

    It's pretty sad that not only me, but at least a dozen other guys in here are searching all over for the DLC of TW14 because it's still the best career mode around. That's a 7 years old game. I have close to zero interest with this new game and I love golf, 333 days in a row playing TW14. One of my daughter is at 348, the other at 301 and I'm amazed how many are still playing just about every day.

    Yup, when I feel the urge for golf gaming any of the TW games really scratch that itch.

    Surely they aren't going to make us sit through 15 of these 720p, compressed strobe show videos of courses in which we already knew the identity of 8!? They'll do anything to defer answering tough questions won't they?

    Seems like it. It's exactly like when they announced the pros that were in-game. Send a couple of tweets per day, show nothing of substance...good enough for them, I guess.

    In my opinion, the lack of interest in answering simple questions from the audience who is most curious about changes from previous versions tells us to lower expectations I think.
    As I have maintained… If they had information and news to assuage our concerns they would be telling us about it by now I believe.
    I have to say… The “sameness” & limitations of the course design program and distribution method is really on display here.
    These courses have very limited differentiation & personality in terms of appearance, coloration, textures, etc.
    They all just kind of look like the same course.
    Yeah, amen to all of the above. No one obfuscates or dodges good news for this long.
    Their timing, roll-out, and PR for this game have been E for effort from day 1. It'd be one thing if they were counting on the game itself to excite people, but clearly they aren't. One can only assume the worst about the product at this point....
    I think the group of us on here fits into the happy middle ground of potential customers for this game:
    - Have played previous golf games, including TGCs 1, 2, and/or 2019
    - Want a robust-enough single player experience to go along with online options
    - Enjoy quality graphics, but also understand that gameplay is king
    - Look for realism, in terms of real courses, pros, tournaments, gear, etc.
    - Might dabble in the "fringe" (pun intended) elements of the game (course designer, for example), but are more concerned with the nuts and bolts of how the game plays
    We fall in between the extremes of the "I must shoot in the low- to mid-50s every round, and want to use the power boost and spin button" side, and the "I use no aids, no green grid, no wind direction guide, I only use Master clubs, and anything less than that is too arcade-y" crowd. And I have no issue with either of these extremes...play the game the way you want to!
    Now, here is my question...who is their marketing targeting at this point? And to that, my answer would be no one.
    They aren't showing anything to the hardcore sim players (there's no gameplay footage, aside from that edited IGN video which was at the easiest difficulty level, clearly), the occasional causal players (aside from catchphrases, kangaroos, and wild apparel options, nothing seems "fun"), or us in the middle (career mode and course designer details are scant at best, they keep re-announcing the same info over and over again, like these courses, etc.).
    It's truly mind-boggling.

    A wonderful breakdown..
    They are seemingly angling to be the classic "jack of all trades, master of none"
    Since I like competition and to have some golf games actually being developed, I'm actually a little worried that they might be heading straight for the "final version" of this game with how poorly it appears to be targeted and optimized to hit a specific audience.
    I don't think they should have put "21" in the title either. As we've all banged on about...golf games shouldn't be throwing a year in there to date themselves as they absolutely shouldn't be released on any particular timeline.

    I'm on the old side like 68 old. I play with Master clubs and can get around most courses well under par nothing crazy high 67 or so a couple strokes either way. High winds a bit harder of course. Game is pretty balanced for me. No chipping or flops on the greens no chipping out of bunkers. I don't want to shoot crazy low but I don't want to shoot over 80 either.
    This is the only game being produced at this time and I am thankful for that. Course list means little to me it is the user created courses that fill out the game. So as long as the new version plays somewhat like 19 I'm OK with that. Not too crazy about the commentators though.
    I can't figure out who they're targeting so far with marketing myself. I'm not a marketing major, but this is one of the crappiest marketing campaigns I've seen in a decade. Yet somehow, they still manage to always get a couple of "can't wait to play this!" comments to their tweets about it. This course unveiling fiasco they're in the midst of right now is like watching teeth get pulled. With the exception of maybe one more course, we know and have known for some time what they are. To then go on and tack on a poor quality, lo-res video clip that lasts all of 15 seconds is like rubbing the courses face in the mud!
    I'm sure I'm the exception here, but for some reason I'm getting a feeling that this game is going to play better than TGC 2019... I just have a hunch its swing is going to be more tailorable and even more proportional. It probably won't be as fully analogous to a real swing as it could be, as I still suspect that tempo is going to be the chief determinant for hook/slice. On the other hand, I think the ability to more scaleably execute partial shots is going to to be there.
    The problem is, I don't see anything this marketing team has done so far to suggest to me that they will be able to communicate this adequately to the gaming public, if my suspicions are true. The way to reach golf gamers like us is to have one of the devs/Shaun, play a streaming live multiplayer match with a noted TGC You Tuber who doesn't have a muzzle on. Somebody like Respawn, JimGem, gdog, or Early 1981, are all examples of TGC gamers who do a good job with streaming and video production, who could get this job done.
    The only place I'm seeing news for this game is here, nothing on my social feeds. That tells me their marketing has gone down, or popularity/anticipation has died down, or both. Compared to the game announce there's been very little buzz since then.

    You sound a good bit like me LPD. I'm 65, mostly play with Master clubs, and probably average around 68 or 69. I've progressively gotten worse at the game over the last year, but somehow enjoy it more. My biggest problem is tempo control. I get I only get "perfect/perfect" tempo maybe 15 to 20% of the time. I miss a lot of fairways and greens as a result.
    Back it up to Pro clubs, and I'm probably on tempo 40 to 45% of the time and wind up averaging maybe three or four strokes per round less. Problem is that Pro clubs just kind of feel neutered to me. I like the dynamics of playing with Master clubs so much more.
    I'm expecting 2K21 to play a bit harder, at its most difficult settings and clubs, but I'm looking forward to that challenge, as long as it doesn't feel like a contrived challenge.
    I'm sort of a US Open video golfer (really wish I was a US Open golfer in real life LOL ): I like it to be challenging to shoot par on a course, and to go under par, you should have to play really well. I feel like -2 or -3 per round is good if you're playing really well, but there should also be course-to-course variability. I don't mind the occasional fast track that lets guys go low, but in my opinion (and I can't stress enough that it's just my stupid opinion and nothing more), par for the course should be the median 50th percentile round.
    I used to think a game should reflect how I play in real life and that the scores should be around what I shoot in reality, but usually in a golf game the only way to make that happen is by neutering the distance you can hit the ball, to the extent that your drives go 220 yards or something (which is endlessly frustrating since I can hit it significantly longer than that in real life). What golf games never seem to be able to get right is accurately reflecting the shot dispersion or quality of strike on any given swing, which makes it so that you never really miss your line by a significant or impactful margin (whereas in real life, on any given driver swing, there's a non-zero chance the ball ends up in the parking lot). That's really what causes your scores to add up, it's usually not that you aren't hitting the ball far enough.
    Anyway, it seems there's no point in waiting for more information about the game pre-release at this point. When the actual game comes out, I'll be interested to see/read about it. That seems to be about the best we're gonna do at this point.

    Just wait to see how buried it gets in their launch window given the other games releasing and the other real sports getting going (and/or underway)
    They could have had this time right now exclusively to themselves.
    Blew it. Should have released it and gotten PGA courses out over the months ahead if they needed more time on that part.

    Yup, good luck going up against madden when their trial comes out on ea access that weekend.
    I just happened to be reading through this as they announced TPC Deere Run but my goodness is this a slow process.
    Interest in the game is dissipating fast.

    The best part is that only one of the announced courses so far was a "surprise" - TPC River Highlands. The rest have already been shown in other videos, so they are just rehashing previous info that's already known and making it seem like they're sharing some important details.

    Yet they're keeping up the pretense that this is something all new... smh. What's funny is that most of the comments about each course announcement tweet are asking other questions that are truly relevant... however, the more relevant they are, the less likely their chances of getting answered, or so it seems.
    bigkev
    It looks like Quail Hollow Club and the Wells Fargo Championship is in.

    An actual surprising one to me. I like this addition, and wonder how 2K21's rendition of the course will compare to the one found in Rory McIlroy PGA Tour...
    I also wonder if TPC River Highlands and Quail Hollow are essentially the 2 unknown additions to the game, with the rest being carry-overs from TGC 2019 or ones previously shown in other 2K21 videos.

    I nearly fell out of my chair when I read that this afternoon.... totally unexpected, but much appreciated! Quail Hollow is among my top 5 all time favorite courses, I just hope they've done it justice in 2K21... you certainly can't tell anything from this horrible 720p, compressed video, 15 second strobe-fest :(
    Confirmed running total (7/15):
    TPC River Highlands
    TPC Summerlin
    Copperhead @ Innisbrook
    TPC Deere Run
    Atlantic Beach C.C.

    East Lake
    Others we already know from other info releases/videos (which puts us at 13/15 total "known"):
    TPC Scottsdale
    TPC Twin Cities
    TPC San Antonio
    TPC Sawgrass
    Riviera C.C.
    TPC Louisiana
    Speculated courses that might return from TGC 2019:
    TPC Boston
    TPC Southwind
    There’s gotta be at least one big course they put money in for, or got because of the 2k branding. I’m obviously not talking about Augusta. Maybe they pull a fast one and sneak pebble in there. Completely wishful thinking on my part though.

    Thanks for keeping track of this... I've referred back to your table more than once! :)

    They goofed in the announcement, but TPC Twin Cities is in, as we've already known.
    https://twitter.com/PGATOUR2K/status/1285303589519278080
    EDIT: Tweet was deleted...said that the 3M Open was held at TPC Scottsdale, but showed TPC Twin Cities. Good times.

    It would be pretty cool if we could play the game @ TPC Twin Cities along with the pros this week. Seems like a natural synergy and way to get people into the game even post-launch. I know this has been covered before, but what a colossal missed opportunity. I can only imagine the commercials during the CBS broadcast: "Play along w/ the pros on PGA Tour 2K21 this week at TPC Twin Cities!" along w/ some sizzle reel clips. That would be a couple thousand immediate downloads right there.
    But making sense and doing obvious things is overrated anyway.

    Yes! I remember when you could play against the pros is "real time" in some of the old Tiger Woods games. For example, during last weekend's Memorial, you could have played against the real scores of the event in TW14, as that game had Muirfield Village and the Memorial Tournament branding in it.
    It was a little-discussed feature, but was always a fun diversion.

    Yeah that was a cool feature. I used it several times and wished they would have built on it.
    2k is as bad as EA.. Their games have no competetion yet they feel compelled to keep their game and game development super secret...its bizarre to me. Seems to me they should be flooding communities with info about their games as fast as they develop it. This super secret controlled release of information tells me they think their game sucks...
    Not convinced that TPC Boston will re-appear, as that course doesn't hold an annual Play-Off event, rather than is in a rota for one of the three events.

    This wouldn't hurt my feelings in the least. I just want to see a course that uses a different color palette. :)
    OnlookerDelay
    Yeah.... YAAAAAWN, I don't know why I find their course reveal process so annoying, but I do. I think it's those horrible, poorly produced videos! Only five more of these to go and they'll finally have to start addressing some questions that really matter to the buying public!

    Someone on Twitter, I believe, made a good point about the videos being pointless and annoying. Basically, because they are so quickly and aggressively edited, as well as so short in actual length, it means all the videos (and in turn, the courses they feature) look exactly the same.
    And this TPC Sawgrass one is a perfect example of that, as they didn't even include the 17th island green in the video. Sure, the 18th is a difficult and memorable finishing hole, but No. 17 is what even casual golf fans know about Sawgrass. So having a video about Sawgrass that doesn't show the most recognizable hole in its layout is weird.
    TPC Boston...confirmed.

    Hate to say it, but this is starting to feel like 2k is self sabotaging this. 4 weeks out and almost no gameplay.

    The senior producer from HB Studios posted a vague post on the 2K forums yesterday, giving some gameplay info:

    "There will be more than one swing difficulty to choose from and plenty of customization options to boot."
    I am not sure why it's so hard to get any info out of these folks. We still have TWO DAYS of course announcements left - and we already know 3 of the 4 courses they have yet to "reveal"!
    There won't be any more info likely shared until next week, so we will be about 3 weeks away from release before we even get our first "deep dive" of any kind of gameplay, online, career mode, new apparel and equipment, etc.

    Yeah, and IMO that was the biggest news item to date regarding this release and it opens the door to all sorts of questions and comments, yet it comes as an 'oh btw comment' in a fledgling forum!?

    I don't have a clue as to what model their marketing and promotion for this game. Even EA Sports was more forthcoming in their escalating rollouts of the Tiger Woods series, 10 years ago. We might see something Friday, since they'll be done with the dramatic course reveals by then. It was four and a half weeks prior to the launch of TGC 2019 that we got an 18 hole multiplayer stream with Shaun West and TheApexHound, which I found very informative and helpful.
    We're now four weeks out from release; I think they're planning on doing it again, but maybe not with TheApexHound, it needs to happen soon. If this rollout is irritating a fanboy of my caliber to the extent that it is, I can't imagine the negative effect it must be having on fence sitters! :)
    It's good that they have official courses where there are actual PGA Tour events. I am struggling to find positive things to say about the pre-release rollout, so I will give them credit for having courses where the Tour plays real life events.

    Credit where credit is due, for sure. I also appreciate the real courses tied to real events. That's one of the main reasons Tiger Woods 14 career mode holds such a near and dear place to my video gaming heart. Aside from the majors, it had a bunch of real life events, including the Waste Management Phoenix Open, Farmers Invitational, AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, the Memorial, some of the WGC events, etc.

    Speaking of the Farmer's and AT&T....how about some West Coast oceanside golf? I know Pebble is out, but Torrey?
    Also, after 2 straight weeks of Muirfield, I'd love to tee it up there virtually (well, I'd love to tee it up there really but I'm pretty sure it's an exclusive membership of which I am most certainly not welcome to join LOL...).

    Haha...well, if you have a copy of Tiger Woods 14 sitting around, you can play Muirfield Village on that!
    I guess I get why they went with the TPC courses...probably easy to obtain the licenses, they have real-life events associated at them, etc.
    But c'mon...golf takes place in more than just the TPC bubble. It is played on more than just parkland courses. I know there will be plenty of other user-made courses to fulfill our links course needs, but some attention paid to non-TPC courses would be nice.
    Happy last day of course announcements, everyone! Excited to see TPC San Antonio and...something else?
    Hoping for a wild card links course, but betting on TPC Southwind.
    Here's to more in-depth information about the game coming out soon!

    I think their PGA license came with all the TPC courses, remember reading that after TGC 2019 was announced. Probably no extra cost except their time to include those in the game.

    Swing difficulty? Well we already have that. Master Pro and Game plays itself.

    They are doing away with the club sets, in favor of the swing difficulty settings. But, like most of this game's features, we have no idea yet what that means.

    HB Studios doesn't think of it as difficulty levels. They prefer to think of it as club performance levels, where you have to trade off forgiveness to get more distance, higher trajectory, and more spin. If they go with strictly swing difficulty, all levels will have the same carry and spin, but those playing on the easier level will have more forgiveness.

    I understand that making a game is different than real golf, but in real life, you get more distance and higher trajectory (forgiveness, more-or-less) at a trade-off of accuracy. That seems like the more natural/realistic trade-off to me but I'm willing to just wait and see how it works when the game is out.
    Final course tally is not bad, it's just a little 1-note in terms of all being parkland courses (as many others have pointed out). Would have been nice to have some variety. I guess Scottsdale is in there which offers a little variety, but even that course is basically a parkland course that happens to be located in a desert.
    The key to me will be that they allow adding in user courses into the season. These tourneys and courses are nice but need representation for the 4 majors.
    Scorecard on whether these courses have been available in the last two EA games:

    Atlantic Beach C.C. - New
    Quail Hollow - RM

    TPC Boston - TW14/RM
    TPC San Antonio - TW14
    Riviera C.C. - New
    TPC Louisiana - TW14
    TPC Southwind - New
    Wow, Tiger Woods 14 really had a lot of courses. There's enough new courses on this list for me, though, that I think it's worth a buy. (I'm not too keen on custom courses; as a Super Mario Maker player, I can tell you that most custom levels are crappy and sometimes next to impossible.)

    Glad you are gonna buy the game. You will love it.
    And!!...
    You will absolutely be blown away by the quality of custom/ created courses.
    These guys know how to make them.
    I completely agree with the above post. The elite designers create courses that are actually better than the official ones. It doesn't really matter what the course list is as all these courses are already in the 2019 game. Some of the other great courses include Augusta, Pine Valley, Shinnecock Hills, Oakmont, Los Angeles CC, Cog Hill, Medinah, Congressional, Seminole, Crystal Downs, Pebble Beach and even Cypress Point. All the courses that host the British Open are also available such as Troon, Muirfield, Royal St Georges, Royal Portrush and of course St Andrews and Turnberry as well. It will only be a matter of days/weeks before every single course that I have listed will be available to play in the new game once they have been ported over by the designers.
    I will vouch for the last game and the created courses. I have a group that get together and play once a week if we can and the created courses have been amazing. There is some talented people who spend a whole lot of time making some really beautiful and challenging courses. Cannot wait for this game

    I'm hoping somebody makes the Predator early on
    I saw the video promoting the course designer, and now I'm a lot more excited than I was before. I wonder if it would be possible to create the original Mario Golf's courses? In any case, if it's got that many features, then I'm sure there's going to be good ones. My only question is, will we be able to easily find them? Going back to my Super Mario Maker comment, it's almost impossible to find good courses in that game. Maybe someone could list the good ones on this forum.

    Here's the list I've used for 2019 to find great courses. I'm sure they'll do something similar for 2K21. The game also features multiple filters "Favorites, Trending, All-time highest rated etc." that makes it rather easy to find good courses

    Zero chance on Augusta, but most anything else is probably fair game.
    Maybe we'll get 1-2 second snippets of gameplay during the course reveals? Sad what we're resorting to just to see this darn game in action. You'd think they were intentionally keeping it a secret or something.....

    So sad - I still play Magnolia in TGC19 but will lose int in PGA2K :-(

    I would assume the creator of "Firethorn National" will port their course over to 2K21. I think they are pretty active in the TGC/2K21 community, and said they already have the course layout ready to port over, and they will then use the updated features of the course designer in 2K21 to build it out before publishing.
    Can anyone confirm or deny this? Custom courses for schedule is a must. Or we only can play 15 courses with game?

    The career mode is made of 33 events. 15 are played at real courses. The rest are at fantasy courses. None of the real majors are licensed. You cannot edit the schedule in any way.
