Nearly 100 Junior School Golfers from across NSW headed to Forster Tuncurry on the 6-7 May 2019 for the 2019 JNJG Year 7/8/9 Newton Shield.
The golfers swapped books and pencils for clubs and balls on Monday and converge on the Mid North Coast for the tournament, with selection in the NSW Under 15 team up for grabs.
The leading two boys and girls, in both Scratch and Nett Divisions to be selected by JNJG to participate in the Australian Under 15 School Event, played in conjunction with the Australian Open, later in the year.
The tournament was played over two courses, with the long Tuncurry course hosting the opening round before players moved to the short and tight Forster layout for day two.

North Coast Junior Masters
The opening round of the North Coast Junior Masters was placed at Kew Country Club on the18 & 19 May 2019 in perfect conditions on the Lower North Coast.
For the first time in tournament history, more than 100 juniors took part in the 5th JNJG Junior Masters event of the year.
There is something in the water on the Lower North Coast that the girl golfers seem to be drinking, with the local contingent stronger than ever in 2019.
Pyper Hollis (Kew) was looking to win her local Junior Masters event with one final attempt before turning 18, whilst fellow Kew CC members Vanna Limeburner and Quedesha Golledge were hoping local knowledge would help them win
their own age divisions. Port Macquarie pair Madeleine Laws Farrell and Ella Scaysbrook also made the short drive down to Kew, looking to keep the majority of the Girls trophies in the Lower North Coast District.
