The Hunter Academy of Sport (HAS) and Central Coast Academy of Sport (CCAS) are excited to announce Cypress Lakes Golf & Country Club as Official Program sponsor on a three-year term of the HAS and CCAS Golf Programs.
The purpose of the HAS and CCAS golf program is to develop promising young golfers and assist their progress in game development. The academies play a vital role in the Jack Newton Junior Golf (JNJG) pathway by identifying, monitoring and developing the skills of young male and female golfers from the Hunter and Central Coast Regions.
As the Official Program sponsor of the Golf Program, Cypress Lakes Golf & Country Club will provide athletes in the 2023/2024, 2024/2025 and 2025/2026 intakes access to their practice and short-course facility and golf course, discounted accommodation room rates and invitations to Cypress Lakes events. Cypress Lakes will also provide an agreed number of complimentary golf memberships for selected athletes on an annual basis.
The following athletes will benefit from this partnership in the 2023/2024 season; Cooper Ridgeway, Elie Peattie, Lachlan Lawson, Lachlan McDonald, London McPaul, Oliver Partridge, Oliver Thomas, Rohan Dormor, Rory Falk, William Martin (HAS) and Alex Hughes, Ava Prince, Blake Cranston, Brant Howell, Bryan McCann, Ngalan Ah-see, Ryan Carrigan, Shaylan Bennett, Skye Nolan (CCAS).
The HAS and CCAS Golf Program will be coached by Mark Ingrey and Gavin Sutherland.
Ian Robilliard OAM, Group Commercial Director of the HAS and CCAS said of the partnership; “Cypress Lakes is an outstanding facility, a picturesque 6,487 metre par 72-hole championship golf course, and it is now home to the HAS Golf program. This program has strong alignment with Jack Newton Junior Golf, and bringing in Cypress Lakes means these local junior golfers are now set up for long term success. To complement the HAS program, the athletes selected in the CCAS golf program will also work with the HAS athletes and will enjoy access to the Cypress Lakes venue.”
Cameron Johanson, Business Development Manager of Cypress Lakes Golf & Country Club followed, “We are very excited to update and extend our partnership with HAS and CCAS to continue to provide top golfing facilities to further help develop our next generation of golfers into the future.
Cypress Lakes Golf & Country Club has been the host of the JNJG International Classic Tournament event for many years and have recently locked in to host The Jack Celebrity Classic event this year.”
“We look forward to working with HAS, CCAS and JNJG for many years to come and hope all athletes, managers and caregivers enjoy their time here at Cypress Lakes Golf & Country Club!”.
The HAS and CCAS Golf Programs will begin on September 25th at the Jack Newton International Junior Classic tournament at Cypress Lakes Golf & Country Club.
