SIKESTON -- For over 25 years, a wacky game of golf has promised good times to its participants while benefitting two local organizations.

And this year is no exception.

The 27th Annual Kow Pasture Klassic begins at 8 a.m. April 28 at Schindler's Tavern in New Hamburg, where teams of four "golf" through the course -- which is actually land adjacent to Schindler's. Cost is $100 per team, which also includes tickets that can be cashed in for food and beverages.

The game is played just like regular golf -- except it's played in a field and not on a regulated course. Also, participants use tennis balls and any kind of club they can construct.

"It's a fun day to go and raise money for a good cause and have fun," said Michelle Fayette, executive director of the Kenny Rogers Children's Center in Sikeston.
