Jack Newton Golf Classic

The Brief

Impact AV was selected to help produce the Jack Newton Golf Classic in December 2011.  Not your average round of golf, this annual event held at Cypress Lakes, Hunter Valley features celebrities – including sporting greats, comedians, entertainers, film stars and television personalities – playing alongside professional golfers and business people in a 36-hole pro-am tournament.  Behind this fun event is also a great cause, with proceeds donated to the Jack Newton Junior Golf Foundation.  Over three evenings, an audience of around 300 high profile guests enjoyed live entertainment and presentations, with all of the audiovisual requirements supported by Impact AV.

The Approach

It was important for Impact AV to create a truly professional and seamless event which matched the high profile of attendees and entertainers.  To achieve this, we worked closely with the entertainers to ensure we met the high audio visual standards required by the several performing bands.  We also meticulously planned for the speeches and award ceremonies, ensuring our lighting, sound and presentation screens created a central lectern area to suit the occasion, carefully balancing the need to create a warm, jovial ambiance and put the spotlight on the presenters and award winners, while featuring sponsors logos.

 The Results

Our stage management skills, reliability and commitment ensured a series of seamless evenings’ entertainment, with a trouble-free order of events, including speeches, awards and entertainment.
