PGA TOUR 2K21 Releases New Course & Announces Clubhouse Pass with Three Different Tiers

2K and HB Studios have announced their PGA TOUR 2K21 Clubhouse Pass, a 3-tier ongoing live service, featuring new clubs, new gear and new MyPLAYER customizations, for players to earn and unlock.

Season 1 of Clubhouse Pass is available now, running through March 3, 2021. It includes the potential to unlock up to 75 levels of gear, VC and cosmetic items you can earn to peacock your status. All players can earn XP in any mode to advance through the Clubhouse Pass levels, and with three months of fresh content, there will be a ton of new clubs, clothes and VC rewards to unlock.

Here are three Tiers to the Clubhouse Pass:

  • Free: This tier allows you to access 15 free levels of the 75 levels in Season 1. Every five levels you pass, you’ll receive a reward;
  • Premium Pass ($7.99): Access all 75 levels of rewards;
  • Premium+ Pass ($14.99): Access all 75 levels of rewards, plus skip the first 20 levels and automatically unlock those rewards.

In addition to the Clubhouse Pass announcement, 2K has released a new course today. Detroit Golf Club is available for free, to all players. Holiday-themed cosmetic items are also available for all PGA TOUR 2K21 MyPLAYER’s.

    Looks like new content has come out for PGA 2K21.
    It's the Season One Clubhouse Pass. Seems to include the Detroit Golf Club and the Rocket Mortgage Classic. Plus a bunch of silly new gear and such, although Mizuno clubs seem to be added, too.

    However, to get the most out of this, you have to pay. There is a free tier, but you only get rewards after every fifth level up to level 75. Accessing all 75 levels of rewards is $8. For $15, you get all 75 levels of rewards, but also get to skip the first 20 levels and automatically unlock those rewards right away. And Season One lasts from today until 3/3/21.
    EDIT: gdog is one of the folks who streamed content before launch, and he just posted this list of what's included in the update over on the TGCT forum:

    Season Pass Premium is $15 has 75 levels.
    You level up with VC so save your coins if you plan on levelling up.
    He also confirmed that the Detroit Golf Club/Rocket Mortgage Classic is free as part of the update. It replaces event 22 in career mode. Is also playable in local/society play too.

    So you have to pay for the premium pass the pay VC to level up and pay real money for more VC lmao what a ripoff

    This was a little bit of a "huh?" moment for me, too. Needing to pay to access all of the content, then needing to "pay" with in game currency to level up seems like a lot. But I assume they are trying to get people to buy the premium pass, and also buy VC. Classic microtransaction double dip...ugh.

    I’ve heard 2k was greedy, but geez
    Jim Gem did a YouTube video on the pass that shows off what it looks like:

    Looks like most of the Mizuno clubs are behind the paywall. Mizuno wedges are a free reward, but it's not until level 37 that you unlock them. There are a couple other free club rewards after that, but it seems most have the "Premium" label on them.
    The final reward at level 75 is the dang flamingo putter...
    I almost got the game when it was 50% off last week, no regret on passing on the deal. The more I read about this game, the worst it gets.
    They must have a massive set to be able to launch this premium content for a game that can't be run properly on one of its platform's new flagship consoles... UN-FREAKIN-BELIEVABLE! The swing animation glitch on the Series X and S wasn't fixed in the accompanying patch.
    LOL... I'm one to complain... I feel like an enabler, I bought the game on the XBox One X and then when I was saw that I couldn't satisfactorily manage the tempo properly at 30 FPS, I reward HB Studios by going out and bequeathing them 60 quatloos for the PC version, where I can play it satisfactorily, at 60 FPS! :(
    I just saw that someone on TGCT forums went through and compared the stats of the new Mizuno clubs added via the Clubhouse Pass. Here's the post:
    https://tgctours.proboards.com/post/607966
    It basically says that the Mizuno clubs that have been added offer no "pay to win" incentive, as the Mizuno sticks have the exact same stats as other clubs already available in the game. All the rewards in the Clubhouse Pass, then, are strictly cosmetic.
    I'm trying to size this whole thing up...and I just don't know if I understand why they went the "Season Pass" model. I mean, I know "why" - to make more money. But I don't get the plan with this.
    Don't get me wrong - I've been clamoring for new gear, and this gives us that. But putting shirts, hats, sunglasses, and Mizuno clubs mostly behind a timed paywall, when they present no new additional features, enhancements, or anything of worth is weird. It's literally all cosmetic, and the new clubs have the same attributes as other already available. They just look different.
    With so many issues still plaguing this game (online multiplayer problems, the exploiting of red fast swings, Xbox One and Xbox Series X tempo issues, career mode insanity), adding cosmetics that we must pay for makes no sense whatsoever.
    I am not against them selling additional items. I get it. I do think they need to fix bugs though which they are slow on. I do think they should upgrade the PS5 and X series graphics and framerate.
    But I honestly don't understand what they are selling here. Why would I pay money for what they are selling? Just cosmetic items? Give me Augusta, Pebble Beach, St. Andrews course pack or something like that and I could see some value (even though there are some nice recreations).
    You know now they’re gonna try and pull some pay to win crap with clubs. I see it happening. It may not have this time, it’s just a matter of when

    They won't... because of the TGC Tours. That's why everything is always cosmetics. Without all the TGC Tours switching to the new games, they would lose a lot of customers.
    Its all about the $$$$ fellas & the name all they did was put PGA & 2K on it & that's it & even @ 50% off black Friday I still pass on it, it's all ah money grab right now because nobody is playing it, I'm still playing Tiger Woods PGA tour 14 not perfect but its better then this

    Unfortunately that's never happening.
    Every developer are doing this now.  It's the follow the sheep mentality and make a few $$$.  Codemasters F1 game is like this as well new for this year.  They copied Dead By Daylight's cosmetics premium pass gimmick.  Just need to be strong and  not fall for the urge in "I needing to have all the cosmetics" mind trick.  That's how they get you!
    Will never understand the 2K logic of excluding the ability to play as the PGA pros??? How could anyone think this is a good idea?
    The buzz around this game quickly went away after the first few days with the excessive microtransactions needed (unless you have the hours on end to play to earn gear/equipment) or having to play as a created golfer. Imagine if you had to play as created teams/players in NBA 2K or Madden or FIFA? There would be very limited interest and that's what we're given here with PGA 2K21. Gimmicks like the ability to play golf with a pumpkin on your head or use a candy cane in place of a putter are silly and consumers won't forget that.
    Don't get me wrong that this game from a visual and gameplay standpoint is quite good, and that's why it is so frustrating to see a developer like 2K stand in the way of their own success by not making the PGA Pros playable. It's like bringing a great game to market in only black and white and telling your consumers it is not available in color just because...
    Would like to see 2K do the right thing and simply make the PGA Pros playable in all modes, especially a Play Now mode. They would probably be amazed at the interest generated. If people want to play as their created golfer then they have that option still available. Giving consumers options can be a good thing.
    I will say, a few folks noticed some things that seem to be added to the game via the update that came along with the Clubhouse Pass stuff.
    Looks like there are some new things in the course designer, including new hole signs and two more pages of trees...http://www.hb-studios.com/forum/index.php/topic,30167.msg368461.html#msg368461
    Also, I saw someone mention elsewhere that Titleist and FootJoy have been added to the brand logos on the game's startup screens. Those weren't there before, and I am guessing that's what's coming in Season Two of the Clubhouse Pass next March.

    It’s 2k. All they care about is the bottom line. Once Microtransactions are introduced they’ll try anything
    I noticed a "BOSS" logo on the load screen but don't see any BOSS gear options for my player... Guessing it will eventually be added OR maybe bc other players in the game are wearing it. Either way, it should be available for "my player."
    So can I unlock this stuff just by playing? Or do I have to purchase the pass first and then play and then unlock and then pay?
    Either way this game is on hiatus for me until the swing glitch on the X and S gets sorted out. It happens once or twice a round to me and it’s absolutely infuriating.

    BOSS has been on the screen since launch...as has Nike. These brands' gear are shown on the Pros. Patrick Cantlay wears BOSS, and Tony Finau and Cameron Champ wear Nike. It would be great if they get added for users to add to their character.

    You can unlock 15 of the 75 rewards for free, just by playing the game. The first free reward is unlocked at level 2, and a new free reward is available at every fifth level after that.
    To get access to all 75 rewards, you have to pay the $8. If you opt for the $15 option, you get access to the 75 rewards, and skip right to level 20 of 75, unlocking the first 20 rewards immediately.
    If you play the game for a while and advance a bunch of levels, then decide to pay for the pass later, it sounds like you will get all the rewards you would have earned along the way.
    Here are the free rewards, and the level you unlock them at:
    Level 2 - women's light blue Under Armour polo
    Level 7 - green goodr sunglasses
    Level 12 - 100 in-game coins
    Level 17 - navy blue Mizuno baseball cap
    Level 22 - men's HB Studios cube-patterned pants
    Level 27 - blue goodr sunglasses
    Level 32 - men's Under Armour black track jacket
    Level 37 - Mizuno T20 wedges
    Level 42 - Mizuno M-CRAFT 2 putter
    Level 47 - men's Under Armour black track jacket
    Level 52 - 100 in-game coins
    Level 57 - Mizuno CLK Hybrids
    Level 62 - women's Under Armour purple polo
    Level 67 - HB Studios pink/teal glove
    Level 72 - orange/pink? goodr sunglasses
