Sporting Clays – Green Acres Sportsman’s Club

Our 12 station sporting clays course includes target presentations for all levels of shooter. Stands are color coded – green, blue, and red – with a posted target menu. This allows shooters an opportunity to choose the types and difficulty level of targets they prefer to shoot. Our wireless target release handsets offer 3 unique target presentations on each stand.

We take pride is setting a well-balanced course with monthly target changes while maintaining 2 unchanged stations designed for both the novice shooter and upland hunter.

We are an open shoot – everyone is welcome!

Green Acres Sportsman’s Club – Sporting Clays
In 2016 the Green Acres sporting clays course was completely redesigned and refurbished under the supervision of our resident English Instructor Keith Coyle.

The current 12 Stations, meander through a beautiful pine forest and rolling prairie with its unique backdrop adding variety to the shooter’s experience.
During winter months we operate our 5-stand course, unique rabbit skeet and a fast & Furious driven bird flurry. There is plenty to keep any level of shooter entertained regardless of season!
