    I shot as a solo shooter while on vacationing in the Outer Banks. The person who took my reservation could not have been nicer. The trapper (Danny) was great to work with. I feel like I made new friends. Danny was very helpful and accommodating. He allowed me to work on the shots I was having difficulty with and move on when I was proficient at any station. The course itself is compact and provides different views of the same birds. It has some challenging stations and some less than challenging stations. I would rate it an intermediate to advanced course. Great time! I will visit it again when I am in the area.

    My husband, son and I shot at Powell Farms Sporting Clays while on vacation in Corolla, NC on the Outer Banks. It was about an hour and 20 minute drive to get there, but it was well worth the visit. The course is a compact one, tucked away in the middle of huge soybean fields. We were greeted by our trapper, Adam, who was excellent. About three quarters of the traps are thrown by hand, and the other quarter are remote. Since Adam pulls most of the targets, he can gauge them for your level of shooting (I think he ramped it up for us!). The 14 station course provided all types of shots, thrown as report and true pairs. They have a 3-story tower with a shot that’s about 40 yards away (I only hit it once, but my husband was able to get it), a true pair of rabbits, fast crossers over a pond, incomers and outgoers. When we finished shooting, Adam provided us with a cold bottle of water and a slice of homemade pound cake! That’s Southern Hospitality for you. I am so glad we shot here, it is a really great course and so worth the trip.

    On June 2, my grandson and I shot sporting clays at Powell’s. This was my second time there and I can only say it was fabulous. Targets were reasonablly challenging. The trapper, Donnie, was very courteous and helpful. If you are ever in the area and do not shoot here it will be your loss!! I will be back!!

    While vacationing on the NC Outer Banks in Corolla, my wife and I decided to take a side trip adventure to the mainland and shoot a round of clays at family owned Powell Farms Sporting Clays. As an instructor at Deep River Sporting Clays near Sanford NC, I thoroughly enjoy shooting new/different courses whenever I travel. I’d set up an appointment earlier via email with Eddie-Jo Powell and was immediately greeted by my trapper, Donnie. He quickly explained the layout and how we would progress through the course. I’m a seasoned shooter and was immediately impressed with how much creativity and challenge they were able to get out of what turned out to be a fairly small tight area. There was a lot of variety and the full gamut of presentations, from fairly “easy” to “you’ve got to be kidding me” pairs. All in all, I’d challenge any shooter who wants to better his or her skills to shoot at Powell Farms. I give it two thumbs up! Oh, lest I forget, at the end of the round, we were presented with a cold bottle of water and a big chunk of locally made pound cake. How’s that for real southern hospitality?

    Let me “ditto” the first 4 reviews on the site and add a BIG Positive to it. Now let me try to say something they have not said. I figured from the name it was a family owned operation and was was exactly right. William Powell runs a large farm operation with roadside vegetable stands. They are wonderful, salt of the earth type people and worth taking the time to get to know. As for the sporting clays, if you are a serious competition shooter, you may find the course easier than some. But it does have some challenging shot angles. It is a compact area with some creative stations. If you are a young shooter, you will find William very patient and accommodating. He will show you each shot with a free clay toss. He also throws a few extra clays if your group is small. There are many shot angles with a good variety of skill levels: over water, over head from the front and behind, cross shots of all types, several rabbits, long tower throws and close straight shots. The equipment is good and the stations are well maintained. It is the only sporting clay course in that section of NC. We were visiting relatives in Chesapeake VA and found the outing well worth the 45 minute drive. I highly recommend you take your entire family for a very fun time.

    A first class event, Fun Fun Fun. I am a retired Navy Officer and my wife and I shoot every other Saturday. Nice course, many challenging targets. I highly recommend Powell’s Sporting Clays. Will Powell really does go out of his way to make your shooting event the best. Call Eddy Jo and set up a range time.

    Visited Powell’s while seeing some friends on vacation and had a great time. Mr. Powell is very friendly and makes an effort to get to know all his shooters. The course itself has a good variety of fun and challenging shots. I will definitely make a point to visit again the next time I’m in the area.

    I visited this club while on vacation and I have to say I was very pleased with the experience. The course had a mix of hand and automated traps which included a high tower shot. We were provided with excellent service which included bottled water and a snack before and after shooting. The club owner was our trapper and was very friendly. Its clear that he and his wife make customer service a top priority. I am an experienced shooter and I brought two others with me who had little shooting experience and we all had a great time. I would recommend this club to anyone in the OBX area looking to shoot a nice course and some good’ole southern hospitality.

    Visited this facility while on vacation at the outer banks. Had an extremely pleasant time shooting there. This is a compact course covering approx 300 yds. across but has 20 stations. Has a mix of fairly easy to rather challenging shot presentations. Has a tower to throw high crossers, two sand berms approx 15 ft. high that partially mask springing teals and what Mr Powell calls a quail walk. However the most gratifying part was Bill Powell. He is one of the nicest, friendliest owners I have ever had the pleasure to meet. He went out of his way to make sure my nephew and myself had a good experience. If you like to shoot clays and are in the area you definitely need to try Powell Farms Sporting Clays.
