    I agree with all the previous highly positive reviews. I noticed that it has been over a year since the last review was posted, and just wanted to confirm that all the positive comments continue to apply. I would add that they offer Clays League shooting in the spring, summer, and fall, currently on Thur evenings, each of 8 weeks in duration. The pistol and rifle range (up to 200 yds.)is very nice, and they also offer a separate rifle range with steel targets every 50 yds., from 250 to 800 yds. Great folks, great facility.

    This is one of the best shooting venues in Texas. We shoot at a number of venues and courses around the State and this is certainly one of the best. Maryam the proprietor of the shotgun section is a truly wonderful person. She operates the shotgun facility in the finest fashion. I am not familiar with the rifle pistol areas but expect they would be along the same lines. The emphasis on safety and enforcement of such is impressive. The large spacious clubhouse is fantastic. Before or after a shoot one can relax and enjoy the day and the good times. I feel welcome. The place is spotlessly clean and the staff extremely courteous. We have been there as a foursome on a casual basis as well as for large events and it has always been a great time.
    There are NO drawbacks that can be attributed to the management or facility. It is a long drive for me but it is well worth the time and the miles. This is five star for these type of places. Joseph A. Barbknecht Plano TX.

    Stopped by after shooting different clubs in DFW area. There’s no hurry on shoots, peaceful country, and great price. Staff was friendly making sure a first timer like me was taken care of and the club house was well maintained and very clean. Forget rounds? $60 for 250 rounds is a great price compared to other clubs.

    Going from one shooting station to another, the different types of throws and skill level is helping my shooting skills.

    I would go every weekend but it’s 1 1/2 hour drive. Highly recommend the place.

    This is one of my favorite places to shoot. They have 2-3 courses open at any time. They have a beautiful creek bottom wooded course and two open rolling hills courses. Provides a sharp contrast in terrain between courses. Interesting and challenging target presentations. Well maintained…very few problems with throwers or clays. Friendly staff…beautiful clubhouse…reasonable fees. David and Maryam run a top notch operation.

    The ‘newbie’ sporting course on the Texas scene. Owned and operated by one of the Target Line boys and top shot David Niederer who is catering to the hard core sporting audience. Don’t let that scare you though if you are new. You will find a sporting mix here with all the tricks thrown in. The times I was there they were throwing plenty of specials, battue, midi, rabbit etc. These are what make sporting not skeet and clubs are all too quick not to throw them because they are a little more expensive than a standard clay.

    The terrain is varied and unusual for Texas. You will definitely get a different almost Euro look if you will. David and company know how to use it too, so get ready to have fun with your gun!

    They often have FITASC parcours set up too so they get HUGE points for that. Still cant understand why more clubs don’t set up a practice parcour if they have the resources.
