Nabiac RSL Sub-Branch will host a casual ambrose golf day for veterans and first responders at Tallwoods on Sunday, November 22.
Supported by the Department of Veterans' Affairs, the event will be held as a belated part of Veterans' Health Week.
RSL Lower North Coast sports and recreation coordinator Arthur Chapman said the day was designed to give veterans and first responders a social outlet in the wake of the COVID crisis and to forge stronger relationships between the two fraternities.
"It's to get the veterans and first responders out mixing again," he said.
"Obviously the guys and ladies haven't been getting out much; I think it's very much needed and not a moment too soon."

Mr Chapman said the event had attracted a positive response so far, with 38 of the 50 entries already filled.
"It's been fantastic," he said.
"They're very excited."
Mr Chapman said there was a good showing of first responders among the entries, with a team of police, a team of paramedics, and two teams of firefighters registered.
He said the day would become an annual event at Tallwoods.
Any veterans or first responders interested in taking part should email email@example.com
Entry is free and participants will receive a t-shirt as well as meals and refreshments.
Entries close on Sunday, November 8.
