Country out match-plays city

DAN Williams brought some city slickers to Mundubbera for the city versus country match play.

The third annual Burnett Cup Ambrose was won by the girls and boys from the bush.

Club vice-captain David Zipf said the event started as a flood relief fundraiser back in 2013.

"Dan Williams from Brisbane came up with the idea for a golf tournament to raise money for the Mundubbera community after the floods," Mr Zipf said.

"The Williams family have supported the event ever since and now it is an annual event we all look forward too.

"Last year the money went to CareFlight and this year the money is helping to support the golf club itself."

Both teams were looking to take the prizes and the honours from the other but Country won four-and-a-half rounds and city won two-and-a-half.

Dan Williams won the men's longest drive and also the pin shot on the fifth.

Daphne Williams won the ladies' longest drive, with Lyn Carlyon winning the accurate shot on the fourth.
