Narromine MS Support Group committee member Sally Everett said you don't need to be a experienced golfer to come along and have some fun.
"We encourage everyone to come along, it is always a fun day supporting a really important cause and message," she said.
The Narromine MS Support group was founded in 2010 not only to create an awareness of MS and to support research to help find a cure, it also supports Narormine residents who suffer from the disease.
Ms Everett said the group was initally founded when well known resident Nicole Gillette was diagnosed in 2009.
"One of her coping strategies with the diagnosis was to create awareness of MS as well as education around MS as there was so little information and education around the disease and the effects it has on people and the massive life changing effects not only on the person but their family," Ms Everett said.
The group host two major events a year, including a trivia night at the bowling club in July.
This year the committee are encouraging participants to wear a splash of red, the colour of MS Awareness.
"By everyone wearing red, it is showing support for the suffers and continuing the conversation and education," Ms Everett said.
Ms Everett thanked sponsors for their ongoing support and the Narromine Golf Club for helping them put on the day.
The day is $20 per person.
