A lot of people like unwinding with a round of golf, but you never catch the guys in U2 on the course.

That's because they promised each other a long time ago that they wouldn't play.

Bono recently said, quote, "U2 made a pledge early on, as teenagers actually, when we formed the band that the one thing we would never ever do . . . and it was a sacred pledge . . . was to play golf. We didn't think it was rock 'n' roll."

Now the guys are breaking that pledge, but it's for charity...and also, it's just mini-golf.

The band is doing one of those Omaze.com charity campaigns, where you donate money to win a chance to play a round of miniature golf with the band. Proceeds will go to the fight against AIDS.

Just when you thought mini-golf with U2 was enough, you also get to share a pint with the guys after the game!

The website doesn't actually say WHERE you'll play, but airfare and 4-star hotel accommodations are included.
