U2 is one of the greatest musical bands of all-time with numerous hit songs, with “Beautiful Day” being one of their biggest among others. The Irish rock stars will be replacing their instruments with golf clubs, as they will be hosting a minigolf event, and you can play with the band if you’re a fan of U2 and golf.


Donating $10 at Omaze.com will give you a chance of winning. Best of all, the donations are for a good cause, as the money will go to life-saving medications to help HIV positive mothers and their children live healthy lives.


There’s also some humor for how this came to be. Well, when U2 came together as young kids, they made a pledge never to play golf because they “didn’t think it was rock n’ roll”. Basically, golf wasn’t a sport that they thought fit the genre’s culture and lifestyle.


For the first time in their lives, the legendary group will break that pledge, and pull out their putters, to help this amazing cause. Things like this just show you the power of the sport.


Golf can be used for so many positive things, and you don’t have to play a full 18 holes. You can simply play minigolf, and take in the pleasures of putting, while still doing the right thing.


Cool stuff. Well played gentlemen.
