How do I play with friends in PGA Tour 2K23?

As of right now, we don't precisely know how to play with friends in PGA Tour 2K23. Since the game isn't out yet, it's hard to say for certain.

However, there's a very good chance that the method will be very similar, or even identical, to the process in the previous game, PGA Tour 2K21.

To play with friends in PGA Tour 2K23, you'll need to set up a private match. This is a closed lobby where only those with invites can join, so you can have it with just close friends if desired.

From the main menu, scroll across twice to the Play Now tab. On the left-hand side you'll see a range of options, but in this case you'll want to select Create Private Match. Then you'll customise the game to your liking, including which courses are on rotation, how many holes to do, and which game mode to use.

Next, you'll get the option to add a password to the lobby, or whether to make it invite-only to people in your party. Either option works, but remember for the latter one you'll need to be in a pre-existing voice chat on your console with the people you wish to play with.

From that moment, the game will either prompt you to invite players in your party, or give you the name and password for friends to input if you've selected that option. Then you just need to wait for everyone to join before starting a match!

Can I play with friends on other consoles in PGA Tour 2K23?

Sadly, PGA Tour 2K23 doesn't contain any form of crossplay. As such, you won't be able to dive into matches with friends on other consoles, or even different generations within the same console family. To learn more about it, we've got a dedicated PGA Tour 2K23 crossplay guide for you.

That's it for our look at how to play with friends in PGA Tour 2K23! As soon as the game lands, we'll update this guide to give more precise details for the new edition. Until then, feel free to bag some NBA 2K23 Locker codes!
