Is sporting clays like skeet or trap shooting?

The only similarity is the use of a shotgun to shoot clay targets. Sporting clays is designed to simulate field shooting and mimics the flight path of gamebirds (flushing, crossing, incoming), as well as rabbits rolling across the ground. You’ll move from station to station where new target presentations are thrown in pairs (usually 3-4 pairs per station).

Do I need experience?

No! Our courses are designed by skill level: Orange for Advanced shooters, Blue for Intermediate and Green for Beginners. Even if you’ve never held a gun, our instructors will have you breaking targets in no time!  If you have never shot a firearm, we highly recommend scheduling a lesson.

Do you offer lessons?

Yes, we offer lessons for all levels and abilities from first timers to advanced shooters. Give us a call to discuss your needs!  ** Please note: Due to Covid restrictions, we are currently not offering lessons.**

What if I do not have my own gun?

We offer loaner guns for a minimal charge.  If using out loaner guns, shells must be purchased from our clubhouse. However, you’ll find our shells are competitively priced.
