Official Gameplay Showcase

TheApexHound went head-to-head with one of EA Sports PGA Tour's producers, Ben Ramsour, in an 18-hole match across two of the game's incredible courses.

The pair played through the front nine holes at Bay Hill, and then the infamous back nine at TPC Sawgrass, including the treacherous 17th hole surrounded by water!

It was the first real look at the online gameplay that will be available to fans, and it did not disappoint.

The graphics on the game look incredible, and the level of detail used in recreating the courses is unprecedented.

Early Access

There were two editions of EA Sports PGA Tour released on launch day.

Early access was included as part of the more expensive edition of the game, along with several other bonuses!

This means that the Digital Deluxe Edition £84.99 of EA Sports PGA Tour came with early access, but the Standard Edition will not.

The Standard Edition of the game will set you back £64.99, but comes with far fewer in-game perks, and of course no early access period.

EA Play Trial

As this is the first instalment of EA Sports PGA Tour, there was no prior history to tell us if it would be available to EA Play subscribers.

However, like most of EA's major sports titles such as FIFA and Madden, EA will offer a 10-hour trial for EA Sports PGA Tour.

Courses Deep Dive

In case you missed it, there are 30 courses to choose from on launch day, all brought to life through some incredible technology shown off during EA's deep dive into the course creation.

Each course will have a unique feel, with characteristics changing based on a variety of factors, including the grass type!

The mechanics behind the courses are so detailed that caddies are suggesting using the game to help them read the greens on the real-life PGA Tour!

With all this to look forward to, we may be about to witness one of the most realistic sports titles ever produced.
