    Update! Oak Ridge Sportsman’s Club is up and running with 56 new ProMatic traps. The East course has 10 stations, the west course has 14, and the 5-stand course has 8 traps. Weather permitting, both courses can be driven.

    Charity events are being added, but the courses are also open to walk-ins, Wednesday thru Sunday, 8:00 am to 4:00 pm. Please call ahead if you’d rather avoid the larger events, which sometimes exceed 200 shooters.

    Oak Ridge Outdoor Foundation – a 501(c)3 non-profit charitable foundation – assumed operation of Oak Ridge Sportsmen’s Club on October 13, 2023.

    For decades, under Dewey Kraushaar’s stewardship, Oak Ridge Sportsmen’s has been an incredible resource for charitable organizations in the area, hosting numerous fundraising sporting clays events each year, in addition to having regular hours for casual shotgunners. For that, we thank Dewey, and wish him nothing but the best in retirement.

    The focus of O.R.O.F. will be fundraising, but day-to-day operations at Oak Ridge Sportsmen’s Club will continue. There are big dreams and plans for what it can – and will – become. Come on out and help us grow!

    East course: 11 stations, 50 true pairs, easier
    West course: 11 stations, 50 true pairs, harder
    Wobble trap: Up to 7 stations of your choice, 25 targets
    Five stand: Under renovation

    Two 11-station sporting clays ranges offer a challenge for all levels of shooters. New manager – Brian – changes one or more presentations each week to keep it interesting. There’s also a 5-stand for a nice warm-up. Ten years ago, there were two other courses within 10 miles. Today, Oak Ridge is the only one to survive.

    Have been here a few times, going again today. Dewey is a super nice owner. Everyone is friendly, can’t say enough about that! Course isn’t easy, isn’t hard…. Just right! Good stations that are easy for any age to walk!

    My son & myself shot sporting clays & 5 stand at the club last year. This year we participated in two Tower Shoots. They were some of the best experiences we have ever had. We were able to work our dogs, and had plenty of action on the shoot…(we even had my granddaughter there video taping the shoot). The club house was clean…the food was good…and the owner & staff were helpful & friendly. After looking on YouTube…I was able to see how lucky we are to have a PREMIER club right here is Central Illinois.

    My son and I were at your club last night with the Secor group. We both
    had a wonderful time, we found each station challenging and entertaining. We will be back sometime this summer. Thanks for your efforts. Nice time!!! Tom

    Visited this club on a beautiful 73 degree day in early November 2009. All sporting clays targets were manual true pairs so you will want to have some extra money for tipping the trapper. Targets were fun and that day it was possible to drive your vehicle around to them (course was layed out in a circle so easy to park in a couple of locations and walk to targets). 5-Stand was a blast (pun intended). Lots of fun. I will go back soon.

    This is the first course I had ever shot sporting clays or 5 stand. I can not say enough about this place. Everyone is helpful, the course is great. The 5 stand is fantastic. What appeals to me most is how willing everyone is willing to help you. They want you to get better. The entire place has a very relaxed feel with great stations of true pairs on the course. Its a lot of fun.

    Before visiting Oak Ridge I had never tried sporting clays or 5-stand. Now it seems like I cant get enough. The facility is great and the staff is friendly and quick to help. They also offer bird hunting if you’re so inclined. Since they are open during the week, I can sneak out for an afternoon shoot too. I cant recommend them enough, come see why!

    Well managed, clean, friendly facility. Sporting clay range easy access in open field with surrounding timber. Excellent variety of targets. Stations are added to and changed periodically for variety.
