    This is an old Club (Catfish Creek Sporting Clays), with a new Manager, Doug Cox, and a new name, Polk Sporting Clays. Doug has already improved the facility by adding additional traps to existing shooting stations and by upgrading the Electronic Controllers. The course has 14 raised shooting stands, with 4 traps on each of 8 of the stations, providing for some very interesting combinations. There are plans to add roofs to the shooting stands. The surrounding environment is somewhat varied with some forest, some marsh, and some Florida scrub land. The facility is a Florida FFA owned facility located on the shores of Lake Pierce. Doug leases the club from the FFA.
    While the existing Pro Shop is an old trailer, the construction of a new building is well underway and should be completed within a few months. Carts are available. Doug is a Master Class shooter, thus understands what makes challenging, yet fun targets. I had the pleasure of shooting the course with Doug while he validated the targets for a NSCA event to be held the following day. He was concerned with presenting targets that would be visible, would provide the challenge required for a NSCA event, and would be fun to shoot. I have shot about 25 different clubs this year, and I think these were overall some of the best and most fun targets that I have seen this entire year. Not only a good shooter, Doug is an accomplished Target Setter.
    I had more fun shooting this Club than any I have shot this past year. If you are travelling anywhere in the area, you should plan to shoot Polk Sporting Clays.

    I shoot regularly at Polk Sporting Clays. The staff is friendly and helpful, the target presentations are changed on a regular basis, and I like that the course is wooded.
