Need another excuse to get out of the office and play some golf? How about 18 holes with The Regular Guys for the 1st Annual Three Club Charity Classic?

Here’s the deal… on Wednesday, July 20th we’ll tee off at a secret location for 18 holes of fun. 96rock has teamed up with The Masters, The Goldrush and The Crazy Horse Saloon for a twist on your typically golf tournament. Click here to register for your slot in the Regular Guys Three Club Charity Classic. Three Club? Yep, the kick is that you can only bring three clubs with you to play. We don’t care which ones but you can only bring three. (Hint: find three other guys to play with you and don’t all bring the same ones)

We’ll have girls from all three clubs to help you with your swing, a golfers breakfast, luxury rock star bus transportation to and from the course, a 96rock golf shirt, lots of swag, cold beverages all day, cash prizes for doing your best on the course and we’ll end the day with a dinner and awards banquet.
