PORT Macquarie Pro Am defending champion Jordan Mullaney will return to defend his 2018 title when the event tees off on Tuesday.
A quality field has nominated for the event including three former US Tour winners in Peter Lonard, Nathan Green and Andre Stolz.
Previous winners including Steven Jeffress, Matt Millar, James Nitties and Leigh McKechnie will also compete in this year's event, plus several players who have won the club's principal amateur event, the Seaside Classic.
Jeffress is very familiar with the course having won the event in 2016 while McKechnie always plays well at Port Macquarie and will attempt to win his third title.
The local contingent of Josh Main, Tom Biron, James Single, Ben Hamilton and Jackson Jubelin will also be competing over the two days.
A field of over 60 professionals will tee off with the amateurs on Tuesday and Wednesday.
The Port Macquarie Golf Course is a testing layout and has a course record of 63 set by Paul Marantz in the 2001 Pro Am and equalled in the 2002 Seaside Classic by Nathan Goodchild.
Matt Millar equalled it again in the 2017 Pro Am.
Members of the public are invited to come and watch these talented golfers ply their trade.
A seeded draw will be used on Wednesday with the leaders hitting off 12.30pm and final stages on the back nine from 3pm onwards.
Better Homes through their partnership with the Black Dog Institute will donate $100 for each shot under par by the winning professional.
