Jack Newton Celebrity Classic
The Jack pro-am 36 hole golf tournament combines 50 celebrities ranging from sporting greats, comedians, entertainers, film stars and television personalities with 50 professional golfers. The tournament offers a unique opportunity for amateurs to play with their golfing heroes and celebrities.
Whilst the celebrity heavy tournament prides itself on promoting a fun, relaxed vibe for its participants, there is a real purpose behind it - with all proceeds duly donated to the Jack Newton Junior Golf Foundation and Diabetes.
Since the tournament's inception in 1979, the Jack Newton Celebrity Classic and Diabetes Corporate Cup have collectively donated over three million dollars (AUD3,000,000) to the cause - a truly remarkable statistic that is reflective of Jack Newton's passionate application to his craft.
