[MARCH 30, 2004]  SPRINGFIELD -- The annual Illinois Conservation Foundation Downstate Golf Benefit supporting youth hunting, fishing and other educational programs is scheduled for Tuesday, June 1, at the famed Rail Golf Club in Sherman, near Springfield.

"The downstate golf outing is one of the foundation's most popular events and serves as a terrific opportunity for our friends to support outdoor recreation and education programs that benefit young people throughout the state," said Joel Brunsvold, director of the Illinois Department of Natural Resources, who serves as chairman of the board of directors of the Illinois Conservation Foundation. "The Rail Golf Club, home of the annual LPGA State Farm Classic, is a great course, and I'm sure those who join us for the outing will have a great time."

Proceeds from the downstate golf outing support youth deer, turkey and waterfowl hunts, as well as family-oriented activities, including Free Fishing Days each June and National Hunting and Fishing Days each September.

The golf registration fee is $150 per person, while foursomes may register for just $500, covering golf greens fees and cart, lunch, dinner, beverages, awards, and prizes. The field is limited to 144 players.
