No matter what sport is played, the weather heavily affects the game. This is why when I play a sports video game, I’d like to see the weather conditions really make an impact. The weather is especially important for the game of Golf, so let’s see if it plays a role in EA Sports PGA Tour.

Will Weather Be A Game Element?

Well, the good news is that the weather will have a part to play. Wind, sunny weather, cloudy days, etc. Trust me, it is NOT easy to play golf on a windy day, and when it is super sunny, you’d better be wearing a pair of shades. However, the thing I like about the courses in the game is how different they will be from each other weather-wise.

The Old Course At St Andrew’s Weather

They did not specify every course for now, but it was confirmed that many courses will appear more cloudy than others. One course already confirmed as being cloudier is The Old Course at St Andrew’s, which is realistically accurate.

The Ocean Course at Kiawah Island Weather

I’m certainly pleased to see that weather is once again implemented in this game, but I have three questions:

  • What other courses will be labeled as cloudier or sunnier?
  • Will there be a rotation in the type of weather in courses?
  • Will the turf post-rain storm have an effect in the game?

Well, we’ll find out once the game is out.

EA Sports PGA Tour is coming on April 7th, 2023, and will be playable on PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X|S.
