A chance to see Charles Barkley’s swing up-close? An opportunity perhaps equal parts entertaining and horrifying, but nonetheless, how many golfers get to say they teed it up with Sir Charles himself?

That chance is being offered through an auction by Charitybuzz, the site that hosts a bunch of charitable donations, and a campaign called Curates: Golf, presented by Audemars Piquet. Currently, the bid for a round of golf with Barkley is at $23,600, which includes a round of golf at either Druid Hills Golf Club or Piedmont Driving Club in Atlanta, Ga., or The Phoenician Resort in Scottsdale. The winning bid is guaranteed three spots in a foursome with Barkley before May 2019.
