SPORTING CLAY

Shooting Sport Facilities

If you want to hone your skills on a more challenging game, try Sporting Clays. Sporting Clays has 12 stations with different target presentations at each. You might see a crossing dove, flaring geese, flushing quail, or even a bouncing bunny simulated on the course. Sporting Clays has been called “Golf with a Shotgun” and many use it in the same way, as a leisure hobby, to entertain clients and for a fundraiser. Because the sporting clay course can accommodate many shooters at the same time it is great for large groups and can be shot in one to three hours depending on the number of shooters and the number of targets being shot. There is a 12 station course open daily at Blackwood Gun Club and up to 24 stations that are available for everyone to use. 5-Stand is a compact sporting game and can be shot on one of the skeet fields as well for up to 5 shooters at a time and offers a variety of targets quicker than a round sporting clays. 5-stand is used for leagues and events only.

To shoot any of the clay games at Blackwood Gun Club one needs eye and hearing protection, a shotgun, target ammo 7.5, 8 or 9s and some safety instruction in order to get started. When reserved in advance, there are shooting instructors that can help get you started shooting if you’ve never shot clays or don’t own your own gun. Rental Shotguns are available as well. The sporting clay course can be shot with groups of two to five.

Course Hours:
Monday – Sunday: 9am to 6pm

Pricing:
Full Round – 100 targets: $49.00
Half Round – 50 targets: $27.50
Golf Cart Rental – 4 person: $25.00

5-Stand Information

Available for special occasions and events ONLY. For those who are lacking the time required (or even money) for a full round of sporting clays, there is 5 Stand. A fast paced and action packed shooting sport, 5 Stand is sometimes referred to as mini sporting clays. Unlike Skeet and Trap, 5 Stand has a wide variety of targets thrown. With between 6 and 8 throwers, you will see everything from sliding, crossing & falling patterns of clays.

There are five shooting stands (hence the name) placed around the field. Each shooter will start in a separate stand and after each round, move to the next stand until each station has been shot. Each shooter will see 25 clays and the person who breaks the most, wins!

CLAY FIELD FAQ

Do I need to make a reservation?

No reservation is needed. However, we suggest that you check our event calendar or give us a call before planning your next trip to Blackwood & verify that no shoots are scheduled for that day.
Phone: 936-441-4040

What kind of shot shell can be used on the field?

We require that all shells be at least 71/2 shot or smaller.

Can I bring my own golf cart?

Yes! We have parking for vehicles with trailers on the east end of the property.

Will I be able to shoot by myself, or do I need a ``puller?``

Here at Blackwood, we recently automated our Sporting Clay Fields. You can now shoot Sporting Clays by yourself. Simply set your preferred delay on the control box and get ready. Skeet & Trap now have a voice operated remote that can be clipped on a belt or pocket making it possible to shoot alone.

What people say about us

“Blackwood is hands down the best sporting clays course in the region.  We had loads of fun on the black course, especially stations 9 and 10.  We will definitely be back again soon.”

Jeff,

I want to pass along my gratitude and appreciation for the work Cybelle and John did for our First Shots class this past weekend.  We had a great day.  11 people (4 families) attended a mornig First Shots class and a group of 7 went through in the afternoon.  It was an excellent, fun and educational day.  Instructor John did a great job.  Please  Thank him for his service and please pass along our gratitude to the other veterans at Blackwood.

Blackwood Gun Club thank you for hosting our homeschool group.  Its a great program.   I look forward to our next visit.  MERRY CHRISTMAS and God Bless.

Great place to shoot. Reasonably priced, friendly service and the Range Safety Officer (RSO) was fantastic. Not only did he do a great job of ensuring we all shot safely but he offered VERY helpful tips and added a very much appreciated bit of "expert advice" to my sighting in process.
