    I’m new to trap shooting after my retirement I decided to start shooting again. My wife and I contracted the Cardinal center for camping information and the people were so wonderful we went up and stayed a week. I shot two times a day 100 rounds at a time and we had a great time. After going to the Cardinal I’m afraid that other venues will have a problem comparing.
    The weather was good, the camp site was perfect, everyone we talked to were very nice and very professional, could not have had a better experience.

    We drove down from Ontario after hearing so many rave reviews from fellow Ontario shooters. I could not have been more impressed. Everyone in the registry building was so friendly and helpful as they guided us through the registration process. I have never experienced such incredible organization at a shoot before…squads moved quickly, scorers worked professionally, facilities were impeccably spotless. When we missed our doubles squad, there was no scolding or upset. We were apologetic (we didn’t know they were going up in squads by 24!) and we were simply resquaded immediately and taken by golf cart to our new bank. There were no delays in our scores being posted either. What an incredible operation! We will be back. Congratulations to all involved.

    Great Place to shoot and great facilities. The management at The Cardinal are very helpful and friendly. But it would be nice if they would put the direction to the cardinal from route 23 on their web page.

    What an awesome venue. A new sporting clays course that as soon as the trees bloom will really come into its own. A world class shooter is running the club as well as setting a very respectable course. All of this and it is only 20 minutes from Columbus, Ohio. The only con is they don’t currently take credit cards so make sure you take cash or check. I only hope they are working on taking credit cards soon.

    We came over to the Ohio State and enjoyed the experience so much we are going back for the Cardinal Classic next weekend. Staff and facilities are the best around, thanks so much for what you have built and continue to improve. Showers, pool, and all the facilities make camping and shooting a pleasure even in this hot weather.
    Will be driving to Cardinal as often as I can in the future.

    You cannot find a better place to shoot. I spend my summers in MI and the 4 hr drive is worth it. Well run events. Friendly, helpful staff, clean showers (lots) and rest rooms. Great camping, restaurants & hotels within 15 min’s. Wish the Grand was back here. Almost makes me want to move back to Ohio and the snow.. NAW. just kidding. Hope to see you there.

    Great facility, all new equipment, voice activated, personnel friendly / helpful, price per round very reasonable. Hopefully they will soon add skeet facilities. This location is first class.

    The facility is very nice. There is a location to fit everyone’s wishes. The employees are very friendly and always try to fill your requests. We plan to return at least 3 times in 2009.
