- Spectator viewing doubled from last year to 5,000 linear feet.
- At least 3.5 acres of spectator space added.
- Thinned brush and lifted ceilings along fairway edges, enhancing sightlines and unobstructed views.
- Cleared and enlarged spectator tee areas.
- Introduced new pathways between holes for flexible viewing.

Accessibility is crucial for the seamless spectator experience. Nevin Park has taken steps to ensure that you have easy access to the best viewing spots:
- The area behind hole 15 from 2022 has been cleared, complete with added spectator pass-throughs, making it a breeze to navigate through the course.
- Hole 13 from 2022 has undergone a transformation, becoming a par 3. This change improves spectator access to the green and fairway for both divisions.
- New access route across the creek and behind hole 5’s green and hole 6 tee.
Unique Viewing Experiences
Nevin has introduced unique viewing experiences that will add a whole new dimension to your championship experience:
- Get ready for a one-of-a-kind viewing experience on 2022 Championship hole 10, where a ghost fairway has been created.
- To streamline the flow of spectators, Nevin has added five new spectator bridges. These bridges increase volume and speed up movement between holes, so you don’t ever have to miss a moment of the action.
