My wife and I are avid sporting clays shooters and wanted to recommend Green acres as having a first class sporting clays range. The range typically has 12 stations with each station having two traps. The targets are generally set for the recreational shooter, not super difficult, but testing. Best of all, unlike many courses, they regularly change the targets on the course. the first part of the course is wooded and then you are shooting across an open field.

The husband and wife team managers are always friendly and the facilities which include a great club house are exceptional.

Green acres is also a large hunting preserve and offers 5 stand.

Dan Ihrke and staff continue to go all out in accommodating members and their guests well beyond the birds and shooting experience that they will have.
A recent trip, having my wife along, included a fantastic made to order breakfast in the lodge atmosphere clubhouse. After our return from the field we arrived to the aroma of home baked bread and cookies as well as the standard selection of coffee, tea and soft drinks.
Then it was off to the sporting clay course for a test of shotgunning skill and the course won. I have shot this course several times, each given a different look at the birds. It is always a challenging test of skill.
Keep up the good work.

I found this facility on the internet and was glad to see a sporting clay facility near my home town of Claytonville/Cissna Park. We visited during a trip home over Christmas break. The club is very nice and was very clean and well kept. Although the clay course was closed during the winter months, we were still able to get a few games of five stand in. My family was unfamiliar with the sport and extremely enjoyed themselves. As for the club, how could you ask for anything more. They were very professional and were informative on how things worked. The club house was well kept and looked brand new. It was warm and relaxing especially around the large fireplace. From my understanding, if you are a member, you can also get breakfast and other meals out there. They offered other sporting events like live bird hunts and fishing was also available. My families in Illinois were so excited to do something new that they actually are considering a membership at this club, and I myself encouraged it. I have an 11 year old that shoots sporting clays in Texas and hope to someday bring a group of them together at this club just to be around different settings. This club does do registered shoots so maybe some punches can be taken away from the locals. Just a thought...Ha, Ha....
This is a great place and I would come back a lot more if it was only closer.

This club is a highly professional facility and well equiped for hunting, targets, dog training, and dining. The extensive property includes both field and duck hunting, and I believe also hosts tournaments and larger group outings including driven events.

The sporting clay grounds include 10+ stations in open field and wooded settings, including towers. (The clays course is closed during the winter) The five-stand is open all year and was recently expanded to provide additional patterns beyond the usual five.

The duck grounds has more than doubled in the past year with the addition of a new wetlands area, although I have not hunted duck at this facility so can not provide more information.

The upland portion of the property includes multiple fields and these are well divided natural barriers. Good cover is consistent in all fields, and includes a good variety of feed and grasses. Fields also include mowed strips for an additional option when snow is heavy.

A variety of birds is available, details are on the website.

The club has a large kennel and I belive offers intensive dog training. The owners are also successful in field trial competition. I will consider taking my own dog there for additional field training, despite the fact that my home is an hour and 40 minutes to the club.

The clubhouse serves a good breakfast and lunch, and also contains a locker room and a private dining room.

Overall the club is situated in the middle of a large farming community so the extensive unbroken cover is very different from adjacent lands. The feeling is more like a working farm that contains a well run club, rather than some clubs which feel more like country clubs that happen to be hunt clubs.

This is a great club to improve your sporting clays game. Regular tournaments during the shooting season. They change the course weekly. The staff is great and the club house is very comfortable. Tournaments are always well organized.

Stopped in on my why to work in Urbana. Nice facility, good sporting clays. Plug in remote controls for lunching targets and tracking targets used, no trappers. Nice people.
