Mark Twain once said 'golf is a good walk spoiled' - but he wasn't playing in the Outback Emus Charity Golf Day.
The Emus' marquee event is again shaping up to be one of the biggest on the golfing calendar, with loads of prizes up for grabs.
The four-person ambrose attracted around 120 players last year, providing 18 holes of golfing fun for the accomplished player and novices alike.
Outback Emus Chairman Wayne Pavlich said he hoped the public would again take to the greens en masse in support of the city's future sporting stars.
"The Emus have raised around $140,000 for junior sport in 22 years, and this is our biggest fundraiser," he said.
"It's just a fun day, it's not about who is the best golfer.
"We'd just ask everyone to come out, no matter what class of golfer you are, it all goes to help junior sport in Broken Hill."
The event begins at 10am on October 13, and nominations can be made at the golf course pro shop or by phoning 8087 9099.
Teams are encouraged to nominate early.
All players who participate will receive a prize thanks to generous donations from local businesses.
Food and drinks will be available on course, and there will be a sausage sizzle and television set up on the 16th hole for those wishing to keep updated on the Bathurst 1000 race.
The cost is $25 for golf club members, and $30 for non-members.
