Sporting Clays Girls Week-end!


Sporting Clays, a century old sport sometimes described as “golf with a shotgun” is one of the three competitive shooting sports with clays- the other two being skeet and trap.

For decades, this has been a man’s sport, but more and more women are getting into the act. It’s fun, competitive, social and the only thing you’re shooting at is a round orange clay disc.


A long weekend course offered for women will be held in Pinehurst, North Carolina (this summer’s home of the US Golf Open), from September 18th- 21st to teach form, technique and safety in sporting clays. All levels are welcome from beginners to advanced with personalized instruction for all.
