 The city’s junior sport fundraisers, the Outback Emus, will be hosting golfing pros and novices game at the Broken Hill Golf and Country Club this month.

The club is holding the match on Sunday, October 16. 

They held the four-ball ambrose last year for the first time and it attracted a good field of 120 to the fairways.

“It was a very good day last year and everyone said they had a good time,” Emus’ member Jeff Hywood told the BDT.

Mr Hywood said he was hoping to get about 140 competitors this year.

Since forming 20 years ago, the Emus have donated about $150,000 to junior sport in the city.

“That is something for the founding members and current members to be proud of,” said president Tim Schofield.

The day costs $30 for non-members and $25 for members of the Country Club. Tee off is at 10am, and food and drinks will be available. Registration can be made to the club on 8087 9099.
