Amid 75 acres of pineland, Cedar Creek Sporting Clays’ 100-bird course challenges rifle toters to bust bullets through flying clays from 16 fully automatic stations. A safety-instruction session preps gunslingers for upcoming aerial activities by running down the gun-safety rules and regs, as well as outfitting eyes, ears, and delicate external appendixes with proper protection. A Cedar Creek staffer then guides sharpshooters to a suitable station, each equipped with a novice and expert cage, before guests take aim with a 12-gauge gun. Biweekly rotating targets keep shooting savants guessing as clay disks fling skyward, moving in random trajectories or shape-shifting into Goodyear blimps. Children as young as 10 years old can participate with parents’ permission, and golf carts wait on hand for an additional fee to transverse the pine-laden play space.
Cedar Creek Sporting Clays
At Cedar Creek Sporting Clays, sharpshooters take aim at clay pigeons that launch in unpredictable patterns and angles from 16 automated stations. As gunslingers take in the range's 75 acres of verdant pineland, a member of Cedar Creek's trained staff guides them through the critical precepts of firearm safety and usage before ushering gun-toting groups out to the first station to field any practical questions about the course. Deadeyes peer over the rifle's barrel, marking and shattering discs that launch in variable sequences like milk saucers hurled by enraged housecats. Two different cages accommodate the ambitions of casual shooters as well as tournament-ready gunslingers. Visitors hunting for comprehensive muzzle mastery can learn directly from owner and NSCA-certified instructor Joseph P. Scull, Sr., whose individualized lessons target proper stance, eye dominance, and catchphrase timing.
