Etowah Valley Sporting Clays
The clay launches into a narrow pass of trees, which gives shooters only seconds to track it before the surrounding brush and slivers of sunlight obscure their aim. Located in the foothills of the Georgia Mountains, Etowah Valley Sporting Clays' forested shooting courses give sportsmen natural hunting scenarios to complement the simulated targets. Golf carts transport guests over graveled paths to shooting courses such as two six-station walking courses, two 13-station courses, and a five-stand course. All stations are set according to progressive difficulty to challenge all experience levels, and instructors help marksmen improve their technique while teaching them the difference between hunter's plaid and lumberjack plaid. For guests who want to test their skills in the field, the staff organizes outings such as the Clays and Feathers package, a full-day experience that includes a morning of clay shooting, lunch, and an afternoon of game-bird hunting with a guide and dog at Etowah Valley Game Preserve.
Beyond the shooting courses, Etowah Valley Sporting Clays encompasses a 3-D archery course with targets such as turkey and wild boar. Built with rustic, knotty lumber and exposed ceiling joists, a 3,400-square-foot Amish-inspired clubhouse encourages guests to relax and gives them access to full kitchen and gas grill. For frequent visitors, the staff operates a membership program.
