I am proud to be Patron of the Jack Newton Celebrity Classic – that fixture in people’s sporting calendar that affords the opportunity for the talented (and not so talented) to come together in good sporting spirit and friendship, to raise money for the Jack Newton Junior Golf Foundation as well as Diabetes.
-THE HON. R.J.L. Hawke (Patron in Chief)
Everyone wants to feel connected to something special and 'The Jack' has provided us with an opportunity to offer exactly that. This event has helped my family and countless others create some of the best memories and build many of the most trusted and greatest friendships. I'm enormously proud of my parents and everyone involved, both past and present who have played their role in creating Australia's longest running Charity event. It's been a team effort and it's been our way of giving back to many others who have needed our support and encouragement.
Ther's Grand finals, a summer of cricket, holidays & ther's Xmas. But there's only one that beats them all. The Jack, three days of heaven in the Hunter!
The Jack is an event the players look forward to every year, an change to catch up with old friends, meet friends, meet people from other walks of life and raise money for great causes... and have a bit of fun.
"The Jack" to me is an event where an extended family gets together every year to celebrate friendship and to help a couple of worthy causes through a wonderful golf tournament... but it's so much more than that... celebrities and professionals give their time and leave their egos at the door to make this the best and most fun event of all.
The Jack is like Jack, Legendary.
Adam Spencer is an extremely part time golfer but an extremely full time lover of a good cause and a great event. As such he loves The Jack. Bringing as much amusement with short game as he does his anecdotes from 15 years of top rating breakfast radio from both Triple J and ABC Sydney. Adam has vowed to return this year and conquer the water off the first tee or at least get half way across said body of water.
