    Two different visits, two weeks apart, and two very different experiences.

    Happened to go the first time and was cordially greeted by the counter person who explained how the courses were laid out and their relative levels of difficulty. Then asked if I was a vet, which I am, so That got me break on the cart rental which was then $20.00. Even happier that they had discounted pricing on Tuesdays which was 35¢ a clay. It’s printed on my receipt as “Discount Tuesdays” which I still have, so it’s obviously their policy.

    …or, was.

    Exactly two weeks later, again on a Tuesday, I had a very different and unpleasant experience with a gruff and very blunt guy who pushed a newly hired lady out of the way to handle our transaction at the counter.

    He said there wasn’t any discount on Tuesdays and charged us 55¢ a clay and there wasn’t anything like a vet discount in place.

    The courses themselves are very nice, the confusion at the counter and the lack of people skills, not so much.

    I am an active and experienced Clay’s shooter that shoots with about a dozen other individuals and at several different clubs.

    We’re always interested in visiting different venues for the variety, but in the future, this won’t be one of them!👎

    Nice club but largely unimaginative in target presentation and usually pathetically slow birds. Should have at least one of the courses set up for competition shooters above hunter class. This place has a ton of potential but they pander to the D- shooters who get upset if the bird flies faster than a golf cart. Luxury carts???? No way. Absolutely no place for your gun, none.
    I give this place a C- but it has potential for A- shooting. Heck, Tenuroc now has tougher stations to shoot! C’mon Blackjack!!!!

    Great place to shoot. 3 courses!!! State of the art facility with great customer service. Paved roads. Rental carts are in great shape.

    The courses where set on the soft side, but they just had a charity shoot the day that I shot.

    I highly recommend this club to anyone passing thru or around the Central Florida area.

    Visited Blackjack for the first time with a couple buddies. State of the art facility with premier customer service. Property very well kept and maintenanced. Machines loaded and properly working with great presentations testing shooters of all variable experience levels.

    Highly reccomend this club to anyone seeking clay shooting in or around the Central Florida area.

    Thank you to Dale and Joanne for your hospitality we will definitely be back.

    This was my first visit to Blackjack Sporting Clays, a relatively new club. It consists of 2 full Sporting Clays courses, as well as a Small Gauge course. Carts are in good condition and the cart paths are all paved, so neither dust not mud is a problem here. Upon arrival, sign in is high tech, efficient electronic via keyed input. Each of the shooting stations has the customary 2 programmable traps, so that a lone shooter might shoot by himself.
    Being a new club with extensive terrain improvement, it presently looks somewhat barren. But the area is blessed with an abundance of beautiful mature oaks, so as soon as the undergrowth recovers with greenery this will be a very attractive environment. The staff is friendly and helpful. The targets are good and the equipment is in good working order. The Club is located only 10 minutes off of I-75 and is easy to locate.
    Be forewarned, however, that “Look Birds” are not part of the package. This Club expects that a visitor who has never seen the course is able to shoot without “Look Birds”. Menus are provided to help the new shooter, but they are inadequate for preparing you for the shot. If you shoot the proper way, by analyzing a pair of look birds, then planning your shot, it is going to cost you an extra $1 per station for this privilege ($1 X 15 stations = $15 extra).
