We're just over a month from EA Sports PGA Tour making its grand comeback and today Electronic Arts peeled back the curtains on how it has carefully crafted each of the game's 28 real-life courses (and two fantasy courses) utilizing state-of-the-art course mapping technology. The stunningly accurate designs were achieved by combining photogrammetry technology, drone footage, and survey-grade GPS data of each course.

As you can see from the trailer, PGA Tour looks like it is going to put EA's Frostbite engine through its paces. It even includes scans of ancillary details like clubhouses, landscaping, bridges, trees, rock formations, and other course amenities. Somehow, EA was also able to record the distinct cuts of grass at each course and how the ball plays off each one, respectively. Here are all 30 courses included in EA Sports PGA Tour when it launches on March 24th for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series S|X, and PC:

  • Augusta National
