Jack Newton OAM

I would like to welcome you to the great game of golf and to our website, providing information about everything you want to know about junior golf.

The game of golf has taken me all over the world meeting other great players, Kings, Queens and prominent people from every walk of life. The game of golf provides the opportunity to form friendships that will last a lifetime. Mastering the game and achieving a high level of proficiency is no pushover and the development of personal characteristics such as honesty, discipline and respect are all part of the journey.

More than any other sport, learning to play golf requires a great deal of self discipline and determination. Learning the right technique is just the start. Since Jack Newton Junior Golf began in 1986, thousands of kids have graduated from our programs with many going on to represent NSW and Australia as both amateurs and professional players. More importantly most have continued playing the great game at club level.

Even more gratifying to me and my wife Jackie is the never ending flow of parents who unanimously express their delight over the personal and social skills their kids have attained through playing golf. Honesty, respect, discipline, integrity and a strong work ethic are basic requirements of this great game.

I have no hesitation in urging all parents to encourage their kids to play the game of golf. It can be a rewarding experience that I am sure will lead to providing young children with more confidence in approaching life’s challenges during their formative years.
