Round 1 of the South Burnett Mental Health Golf Challenge will be played this weekend at the Blackbutt Golf Course.
The seven-round competition is being played monthly at a different South Burnett course every round, culminating in a Grand Final on October 14.
Funds raised over the next eight months will be distributed to not-for-profit groups supporting mental health in the South Burnett.
The series is being organised by three of the people – Gavin Jones, Scott Henschen and Simon Neal – who were behind last year’s very successful Cricket 4 Life fundraiser in Kingaroy which raised $27,000 for Relay For Life.
Gavin said 13 teams had nominated so far for the Three-Person Ambrose this Saturday, however he hoped to have 20 teams by the close of nominations at the Blackbutt Club on Friday afternoon.
Cost to nominate is $90 per team, which includes lunch and green fees.
The top three teams from every round will earn a spot in the Grand Final.
However, one more team will also be drawn randomly every round to also play in the final.
Other rounds will be played at:
- Proston – April 27
- Kumbia – May 27
- Wondai – June 17
- Kingaroy – July 8
- Nanango – August 19
- Murgon – September 30
The Grand Final will be played at the Kingaroy Golf Course on October 14.
Registrations for each round can be made at the participating club.
