The annual Illinois Agricultural Leadership Foundation 2013 Golf Classic will be held Monday, June 24 at the Pontiac Elks Country Club in Pontiac, Illinois. Sponsored by The Mosaic Company, the event features an 18-hole scramble golf tournament or a tour of the historic David Davis Mansion for non-golfers. The events are open to everyone.
Members of the Illinois Agricultural Leadership Program Class of 2014 will raffle a Gator CX Utility Vehicle donated by John Deere. There are three Hole-In-One contests, including one hole featuring a Case IH Farmall Compact Tractor donated by Case IH as the prize.
The tour will visit the historic David Davis Mansion and Gardens in Bloomington for a private tour and lunch. Davis was a friend, mentor and campaign manager for Abraham Lincoln, who appointed Davis a justice on the U.S. Supreme Court.
