Chatfield and the organisers of the charity golf day, which is raising money for Hear Our Heart and the Dubbo Deaf and Hearing Impaired Group, have worked hard to ensure the day will be a success.
The inaugural charity day in 2013 raised about $5000, which went towards Hear Our Heart's quest for a specialist Ear Bus and it is hoped this year will be even more successful.
"Last year we had 80 people turn out for the four-person Ambrose and this year we are hoping to get somewhere between 100 and 120.
"I have been really encouraged by the feedback so far. The community has really gotten behind us," Chatfield said.
"We have a heap of sporting memorabilia that will be part of a charity auction and raffles that will take place after the golf.
"All up we have about $5000 in prizes.
"All of the profits from the event will be split 50-50 between the Hear Our Heart's Ear Bus and Dubbo Deaf and Hearing Impaired Group."
Chatfield said he wanted to raise as much money as possible for an issue that is close to his heart.
"My son is deaf and the costs of travelling to and from Sydney for appointments can become very costly.
"The Dubbo Deaf and Hearing Impaired Group help with the costs of petrol and accommodation so that is something we are passionate about, and Hear Our Heart are about the prevention of hearing issues," he said.
There is a 10am shotgun start for the competition, with a barbecue lunch provided before the auction and raffles take place.
Finger food will also be provided during the auctions.
Anyone who is interested in playing the charity day should contact Craig Mears at the Dubbo Golf Club on 6882 2201 or Jason Chatfield on 0498 261 227.
Entry is $40 per person.
Chatfield said they are also still looking for people who are interested in sponsoring holes on the day.
