The Annual Burnett Cup City vs Country Matchplay event is on again. This year charity funds from the event are being donated to charities that work in the mental health field, specifically the Royal Flying Doctor Service Mental Health Unit and Australian Rotary Health, which supports an active research programme in mental health.

Dan Williams sponsors the green fees and trophies each year, and asks that each city player make a donation of at least $50 to the charity collection.

Tee off is by shotgun start at 12:30pm on Saturday 22nd September. Since Mundubbera is 4.5 hours' drive from Brisbane, many city players make a weekend of it. We start with a strategy meeting and informal dinner at the Royal Hotel, starting with first arrivals around 6:30pm and continuing until late. The Royal Hotel serves meals until after 9pm. The golf is followed by a quick presentation at the Golf Club and a BBQ at Mark Williams' place for the city players. Some City players stay on for Sunday to play in the Monthly Medal competition starting at 12:00noon registration and 12:30 tee off.

For accommodation we recommend the Billabong Motor Inn or the Mundubbera Motel. Both are between the Royal Hotel and the Golf course and close to both. (Everywhere in Mundubbera is close to both.)
