Do I need to make a reservation?
No, you do not need to make a reservation during public hours of operation unless you have over 15 people.

Do you accept credit cards?
Yes, we accept credit cards.

Can I get right on the sporting clays course quickly or are you busy/have an event?
Almost always (90% of the time) you can get right on the course in a matter of a few minutes. When we do have an event, they are typically off the course in 2 hours and they usually only shoot one of the two courses available. So the other course is almost always wide open for the public. If you are concerned about time, please call 316-210-4334 before driving out. If you drive out and see a parking lot full of vehicles, please come check with the front counter, because most likely we have at least one course wide open for the public. Also, if you prefer to shoot the course the event is on, most of the time there is room available, it just may take a little longer to get through than the other course.

Is there an age limit?
Minors must be strong enough to hold a gun by themselves and mature enough to follow safety rules. All minors must be supervised by an adult/guardian.

How long does it take to shoot the course?
In squads of 4-5, it should take 1.5 - 2 hours for 50 targets and 2 - 2.5 hours for 100 targets. More than 4-5 shooters in a squad will increase your time.

If I show up right before close, can I still shoot a round?
You will only be charged for what you shoot (by the target) until closing time. You will not be charged for a full round if you do not get finished. We ask everyone to head up to the clubhouse 15 minutes before close.

Can we bring our own ammunition, gun, and targets?
You can bring your own shotgun and ammunition (7.5, 8 or 9 shot only). You can not bring your own targets.

Can we bring a pistol or rifle?
No, we have a permit and are zoned for shotgun use only. In addition, pistols that shoot 410 ammunition are not allowed.

Do I need to bring my hunting license to shoot?
No, you do not need to have your hunting license to shoot clay targets.

How many stations do you have?
We have two 10 station courses and a 7 station 4 trap course for a total of 27 available stations on the sporting clays course located along the wooded creek bed. We also have a double wobble platform where two wobble machines underneath you oscilate up and down, left and right when throwing targets. We also have a 5-Stand that has 6 traps in the field where you shoot different target combinations for a round of 25 targets. The double wobble and 5-Stand are near the clubhouse and do not require walking a course. There are a total of 76 trap machines to shoot from on the property.

How long is the sporting clays course walk?
It is about a 1/2 mile long easy walk. Golf carts are available for rent if needed, but they are typically not needed. We also have a
 double wobble and 5-Stand which are near the clubhouse and do not require walking a course.

Do I have to be a member?
No, we are open to the public and you do not have to be a member to shoot during public hours. Also, we do not charge extra fees to non-members.

If it is raining do you shutdown?
If there are high winds or lightning we have to shut down. If there are not high winds or lightning we typically stay open for the public especially if it is a light rain and/or passing by soon. Please call 316-210-4334 before driving out when these conditions are present to make sure we are open.

Are you open during the winter and/or freezing temperatures?
Yes, we are open to the public year round, however if the high for the day is below 40-45 degrees we are typically not open. Please call 316-210-4334 before driving out when these conditions are present to make sure we are open. If the weather is looking uncertain, we typically wait to make a decision until the evening before open due to the changes in forecast.

Is it muddy?
We do have gravel pathways so for the most part it is not bad. Even after a hard rain, our sand terrain soaks up the water fast. There may be a couple of stations that you may want to pass, but you are able to replace those stations with some from the other course available.

Is it flooded after a heavy rain?
For the most part we do not get flooded after a heavy rain due to a diversion located just North of the property that takes the excess water from the creek to the Arkansas River. However, we have been flooded after extreme heavy and long rains. When this happens, we are typically still able to have 10 of the 20 shooting stations available to shoot from. Please call 316-210-4334 before driving out when these conditions are present to make sure we are open.

Can I make an appointment to shoot on a private day?
Yes, we offer corporate events that meet a minimum target count. I
f your group does not meet a minimum target count, we also offer a smaller group rate that includes an hourly staffing charge in addition to your target fees. Please call 316-210-4334 for a quote or to schedule your event.
