The Shooting Academy's offerings and amenities include a variety of shooting instructional packages, junior lessons, sporting clay packages, supplies and memberships.


Man shooting clay pigeons.

Think of it as "golf with a shotgun." Sporting clay targets are projected to imitate wild game birds and are thrown at a variety of angles, heights and distances. The closest thing to field shooting of any shotgun sport, our two courses feature two five-stands along with a total of 35 stations laid out over Pennsylvania's Laurel Highlands.
