    Had a great visit thanks to our host Hal and was totally impressed with this club. Besides great facilities, all the people we met were very warm and hospitable. Everything was done in a first class way – loved the attention to detail that was evident!

    My only regret was that we could not have stayed longer and done more shooting on the other courses – we just scratched the surface this trip. I also wish I lived closer to the club and could join and use it on a regular basis. Maybe my shooting would improve!

    If you are near this area – definitely try to visit and allow sufficient time to enjoy the place.

    I was recent visitor to Smoke Rise FC and was beyond impressed with not only their facility but the hospitality of all of the members who were on premises that day. It is first class in every way and provided a very unique and enjoyable experience. We were hosted by Hal Cottingham, who is a true gentleman, great host and ambassador for Smoke Rise FC. The Five Stand and Sporting Clay courses are challenging and a ton of fun
    to experience. Set in the beautiful mountains of western NC the setting is second to none. I would highly recommend Smoke Rise and look forward to another visit.

    I had the pleasure of visiting Smoke Rise last weekend. My host Hal Cottingham gave me a tour of the facilities and various courses. It is a beautiful and challenging setup. We ended up at the covered five stand course and shot several different games of five stand. There were ten different machines that created a great variety of challenging shots. There are eight different games on the five stand to challenge all levels of shooters. Very humbling the harder the games became! It was a wonderful afternoon of busting clays. Chris and his staff were wonderful and very accommodating…quite an asset for the club. Highly recommended Smoke Rise Field Club!!!

    Had the chance to visit the club this week with a group of fellow sporting clays shooters. The drive to the club was beautiful with the final few miles on a gravel road with a view of a waterfall. A small stream actually crosses the road. The club house overlooks a small pond and the fish were jumping the morning we were there. We shot one of the courses. It was challenging, but nor overpowering. The course meandered through the woods and was very well maintained with all traps working perfectly. A lot of the shots had small windows to shoot, but not unreasonably so. The staff was welcoming and friendly. Had lunch one the deck overlooking the pond. All in all a great day!

    We were visiting our family in the Cashiers area, and we wanted to practice some sporting clay shooting. We heard of Smoke Rise Field Club, and luckily my sister knew of Hal Cottinham, one of the founding members. He graciously set up a time for us to come, and we got excited as we drove to the club through the forest on mountain roads. Hal met us as we exited our car and quickly got us checked in and gave us a tour and history of the club. We loaded up our gear in his mule and drove up to the first station. Our group of three were varying skill levels, and Hal could not have been more helpful coaching us for an upcoming Sporting Clay benefit in Texas. His instruction will hopefully help us score higher! I have never seen a more beautiful and professional Sporting Clay club and hope we can visit someday when we return to beautiful North Carolina!

    My teenage son, Lucas, and I visted Smoke Rise Field Club at the invitation of Hal Cottingham. Lucas had never shot any firearm prior to our visit today and he was very excited about this visit. Hal made both of us feel comfortable and taught Lucas the basics so he was hitting targets in no time. The club has a wide variety of stations and courses. After shooting we enjoyed grilled burgers and barbecue on the clubhouse patio. The members were friendly and sociable. Thanks to Hal for a fine outing!

    I recently visited SRFC for a first time shooting outing. I was so impressed with the property & how it is laid out. There were stations for me as a novice as well as intermediate & expert stations. Safety was expressed everywhere. Everyone was patient & helpful in teaching me the process. I thought it was a great experience.

    I was fortunate to shoot on a beautiful fall day with colors in full display as a guest of Hal Cottingham. Mr Thorpe and the staff were very cordial. The lodge and deck overlooks a trout pond on a rare piece of flat ground. Shot the valley and ridge sporting courses, with the targets taking full advantage of the steep terrain. Also shot two rounds of the Big Boy 5 stand (10 target presentations) that will test the skills of any shooter. A rare treat and a must do for anyone in Western NC.

    As Lee mentioned in an earlier post, a group of us from Savannah were fortunate to have the opportunity to shoot at Smoke Rise while dodging a hurricane back home. Upon pulling into the parking lot, we were greeted by Mr. Hal Cottingham, a founding member who went out of his way to introduce himself and welcome us to the club. Hal was a gentleman and a great ambassador for the long term vision of Smoke Rise. On the other hand, his “Big Boy” 5-stand will make you wish you never met him! Can’t say enough good things about the manager, Chris, his staff, the layout and overall quality of the experience. Looking forward to shooting there again soon.

    I was fortunate to have an opportunity to shoot Smoke Rise this morning. This is a very unique course with beautiful views and challenging targets. There are two sporting clays courses, two very nice 5 stand fields, FITASC and sub gauge course.
    After shooting the Ridge course, we had a great lunch on the deck.
    The members could not have been more friendly and helpful. I hope to have a chance to shoot Smoke Rise again soon.

    So me and my son and some other shooting buddy evacuees of Hurricane Matthew met at Smoke Rise Field Club this morning and had a great day. We met Hal Cottingham who had shot Ga State Shoot at our home club Forest City in Savannah, and he and club Manager Chris extended us every possible courtesy. Every club would do well to have an ambassador like Hal — hats off to him and his hospitality.

    We shot the Valley Course, then went up above on the beautiful Ridge Course. Certainly presentations at 4,500 feet above sea level that you won’t see at 10 feet! Challenging but fair, but most importantly FUN! The rain started as we finished with the “Big Boy” covered 5 Stand with 10 machines and targets true to the name.

    Shooting with my boy and my buddies at a great new venue made for a great day, now let’s hope Matthew takes it easy on us back home.

    We shall return!

    I have had the opportunity to shoot here as a guest of Hal Cottingham on two occasions. The club is situated in a beautiful albeit remote setting about half way between Cashiers and Hendersonville, maybe 30 minutes SW of Asheville.

    The facilities are first class: Sporting, Skeet (with a wobble trap layout) and a real “Big Boy” 5 Stand. Carts are available and necessary for the challenging, mountainous sporting courses.

    If you haven’t shot uphill and downhill targets you are in for a fun day.

    The staff is highly competent and the members are friendly.

    Consider visiting Smoke Rise if you are traveling in the WNC area.

    A group of us visited Smoke Rise at the invitation of Hal Cottingham. He is a founding member of the club and what a nice guy. He greeted us in the parking lot before we could even get out of our cars. He showed us around the club house and explained the courses available for us to shoot.
    We chose the Valley course. Wow what very well designed and laid out course. Mountainous terrain makes the shooting fun but challenging. Thankfully, they have Polaris ATVs to get around the hilly courses.
    After shooting, we had lunch at the club house. Chris, the manager, fired up the outdoor grill and cooked our burgers while we relaxed on the porch. Be sure to talk to Hal if you want to arrange a very special day for you and a group of your friends.

    Smoke Rise is an exceptional experience. Southern hospitality, and sporting clays unsurpassed by any club. One course and a subgauge course thru a narrow ravine and another up and around the ridge.
    And don’t overlook Hal’s Big Boy 5 stand.
    All fair, reasonable targets with challenges for all levels.
    Hal Cottingham was our host and he went out of his way to make us welcome.

    Shot there last weekend and what a positive experience at a great venue. Beautiful scenery great staff and challenging targets. If you wonder what FITASC is probably like try the Hal Cottingham BIG BOY five stand but bring your tighter choke and leave your ego its the real thing.

    I had the great opportunity to visit Smoke Rise today. I am in the area for a few days and hoped to shoot while here. Chris welcomed me to come up today. I arrived and quickly met members Ed and Hal who Invited me into their group. We had a great round and also shot the five stand. If you are looking to shoot skeet, trap, sporting clays in the mountains, you will not find a more beautiful setting. The management and members could not be more gracious. I highly recommend the Smoke Rise shooting experience.

    Our first visit to Smoke Rise today was a day to remember. This past month I was looking for a shooting experience closer to our cottage in Lake Toxaway than that available in Asheville. I called and spoke with Chris, the Club Manager (having taking the position in January after Randy retired) and explained my experience as a newer shooter. Chris discussed the best way to visit the club as part time residents, and the opportunity to be members should we choose.

    I called Chris this morning and asked if it would be okay for us to arrive around 10am, and he said come on up! Sounded like we might be the only shooters for the day. With good directions in hand, the final mile into SRFC was different than expected, but we arrived on time. The parking area was hopping with members getting ready for a morning of shooting. To our surprise Betsy and I were greeted by Hal Nottingham and Ed Eleazer, and met 3 other members within moments- they stepped out of their routine to welcome us. There really is a passion and appreciation of the club that we immediately felt immersed in.

    After checking in with Chris, and acquainting ourselves with the clubhouse and facilities, we went out on the Valley Course with members Ed, Steve and Mike. They were excellent shooters, but even better hosts, sharing tips and camaraderie at each station and in between. After we finished shooting The Valley, Ed showed us the two 5 Stands, and then brought me up to shoot some of the Ridge Course stations. At the peak of the Ridge Course, with a nice cool SE breeze blowing, mountain peaks in the foreground and the Pisgah National Forest in the background, it was wonderful to experience the natural beauty of the NC mountain terrain.

    Thank you to all of the Smoke Rise membership to allow us this experience. What a great way to enjoy the mountain life!

    I shot at Smoke Rise recently as a guest and was very favorably impressed by the facility as well as the members I met. Although I had shot a mountain style course before, I was not prepared for the challenging targets presented by the “Ridge” layout. The landscaping of the courses and shooting stations, too, was very well done. I also shot the five stand layout after lunch. Hopefully, I’ll have another opportunity to shoot there soon.

    I shoot competitive sporting clays in central florida traveling to as many as a dozen sporting clays courses through out the year. Smoke Rise is a first class private gun club. As an unsponsored guest I arrived and was introduced to many of the members . I was made to feel welcome and was invited to join a squad to shoot their mountain course. The targets were very interesting and challenging. The varied hilly terrain was a welcome change. They have something for every shooter. Three clays courses two different difficulty levels, a sub gauge course, two different level 5 stands, skeet and trap. You will not be disappointed in Smoke Rise Field Club. This is very nice club with friendly welcoming members. I look forward to returning.

    I have been lucky enough to have been a guest of Hal Cottingham on four separate occasions and under his excellent tutelage my scores on the 5 stand are definitely on the upswing! But no matter who you go with you will definitely enjoy the variety and complexity of the many different stations and the good vibes of the enthusiastic members you will meet there. Good burgers at the clubhouse too!

    Biased: Let me start by saying that my wife and I love the southern Appalachians. That is where we vacation regularly. Thus, our review is undoubtedly biased by our love for the terrain, the flora, and the type of people we meet in this region.

    Smokerise is one of the nicest courses we have ever been on. To start with, Randy, club manager, greeted us with the hospitality you’d expect from a shooting club in the south. He told us about their courses, got us in a cart, and pointed us on the way. We shot the Valley course. They don’t usually let non-members shoot the Ridge. I can see why! After our round, he loaded us up in a side-by-side and gave us the tour. We would have had trouble getting up there in a regular golf cart because of the steep gradient.

    While they offer three different courses (Ridge, Valley, and Sub-Gauge), there is quite a bit of overlap. The Ridge has maybe a half-dozen stations that aren’t also on the Valley course, I’m not sure about the subgauge, but saw plenty of subgauge markers on the stands we shot the valley from. On the Valley course, most stands were three pairs. The last station was two. Several stations were just a different view of the same targets (i.e. 5a and 5b). While this sounds like a cheap way of adding stations, it did not come off that way at all. When you shoot from 17 different spots, I call that a long course regardless if some of the stations used the same traps as others. The half-dozen that were just a different view of the same targets were very well designed and truly represented different targets from the shooters perspective. In fact, I thought it added something to the course to have it that way. The shooting stands were first class and the grounds were well kept. Every thrower worked flawlessly. Some of the terrain over which we were shooting looked like a manicured english garden. The mountain laurel was in full bloom. It was beautiful!

    After shooting, we were served lunch off the grill at the clubhouse and enjoyed conversation with the a few club members.

    The only downer was the price for non-members. However, you get what you pay for. In all, I’d go back every chance I got.

    I shot this course about a year ago and what a great day it was. Unfortunatly with my work schedule I was not able to make it back this year but I will counting the days until I can. This is a great mountain course with an outstanding manager. The other reviews say it all. I think about this club often and I cant get back soon enough!

I Grew up shooting clays but haven’t had the opportunity to shoot in over 35 years. Amazing how it stays with you. Great facility, Godd food and fun folks at the club. Going back for my second trip this morning.

    I have had the opportunity to shoot at a number of Clubs throughout Tennessee, Alabama, North Carolina and Florida. But by far this is one of the most unique Clubs that I have had the pleasure to shoot at. The terrain is awesome! It is too mountainous for mere golf carts, virtually impossible to walk, but easily navigated with the Clubs ATVs. It is a private club, but welcomes visitors when arranged with the Club Manager, Randy Deitz.

    The terrain means that you are often shooting almost straight down or straight up, targets that you have never seen if you have never shot a true mountain course. The targets are moderate in difficulty and should prove challenging enough for either the beginning shooter or the experienced marksman. The environment is beautiful, the club house is nice, and the members are visitor friendly. All in all, a day spent at Smoke Rise will be a day that you will not soon forget

    I had an opportunity to spend a morning at Smoke Rise with members Hal Cottingham and Pat Cunningham on Friday, June 21st. Smoke Rise is a wonderful and challenging shooting experience, especially for someone use to shooting on the coast. It is a beautiful mountain setting with excellent facilities. We had a fine morning shooting the sporting clays course, and finished with a nice lunch on the deck overlooking the pond. I definitely will want to try it again.

    In March 2012, Hal Cottingham of Smoke Rise Field Club contacted me to make a sign for the clubhouse. One of my hobbies includes making signs/pictures from spent shotgun primers. This past weekend, my girlfriend and I delivered the finished picture to the club. After hanging the sign at the clubhouse, Hal took us out for a round of sporting clays. Over the years, I have shot at many various courses around the NC, SC, and VA areas. This was by far one of the best courses I have ever shot due to the wide variety in target presentation and the friendliness of the members and staff. The sporting clays course presented targets that were challenging for more experienced shooters, but maintained a balance for the more novice shooter also. Hopefully I will be able to go back and try out the covered five-stand, “big boy” five stand, and skeet field. The colors of the leaves this time of year made for an even better experience because of beautiful views around the sporting clay course. I definitely recommend going to shoot at Smoke Rise if you are a novice shooter or a professional shooter. There is a wide variety of targets and many great people to spend a day shooting with. Thank you Hal and Randy (club manager) for a great first experience at Smoke Rise Field Club.

    I have had more than a few opportunities to shoot the clays course and both of the club’s five-stands. The challenging clays course is inventively laid out over a circuitous and sometimes precipitous mountain path easily accessible by the club ATVs. All areas are well maintained and all traps were loaded and fully functional. Ammunition in all gauges is available for sale. The club house facility is adjacent to an open deck overlooking a trout pond. Snacks and soft drinks are available for sale and on certain days grilled hamburgers and hot dogs are also offered. The staff and members were welcoming and friendly and added to the pleasant experience of being a guest there

    I have shot sporting clays at most of the ranges in North Carolina. First, I would like to thank Randy and Hal. The facility and hospitality could have not been better. The mountains of North Carolina could not have provided a more unique clays range. The vertical presented many new challenges not found at other ranges. I hope to return and shoot some of the other courses. All of our shooting party had a great time. You have a beautiful facility and done a great job making it fit into the landscape.
    Thank you again.

    We were fortunate to be able to shoot Smoke Rise today. The club manager Randy was very accomodating. The main course was layed out over beautiful mountain terrain. The targets were challenging enough for the intermediate shooter. It kept you wanting to come back for more! We had a wonderful lunch on the deck overlooking the pond. We then shot the more difficult of two five stands. The club members made us feel very welcome. This club is extremely well maintained and would definitely be a club that we would want to shoot again and recommend to others

    I visited the Smokerise over the Thanksgiving weekend with my 79 year old dad and 2 daughters aged 9 and 11. We are all novices. Randy Deitz, the club manager took us under his wing and made it a truly enjoyable and memorable experience for all. The members were also extremely friendly and made us feel at home. I look forward to visiting again. The skeet shooting and 5 stand are wonderful setups.

    Shot the sporting clays course with my son as a guest on July 2, 2011. Great course, with very fair presentations. The course winds up the mountain and is nicely spaced with wide openings at each stand and plenty of shade along the trail. All of the equipment worked without flaw.

    Randy and his staff were very friendly and helpful. Don’t miss lunch on the porch overlooking the pond – great opportunity to meet the members and learn more about this very fine club.

    While on Vacation in Glenville,NC, I decided to try to find somewhere to shoot sporting clays. I found a real gem ! The club, the location, the views and the challenge — All spectacular. I’ve been shooting sporting clays for many years and this is, by far, the most fun I’ve had at any club. Being from the coast, most of our sporting clay ranges are on relatively flat ground. The elevation changes, coupled with well thought out stand locations made every station an experience to remember. The Club is a little hard to find but well worth the trouble. If you are in the mountains of NC and enjoy a challenge, I highly recommend Smoke Rise Field Club.

    What a nice shooting facility! We were very impressed with the layout of the 15 stations on their sporting clays course. The course is diverse and challenging, but they were in the process of adding new stands at most of the stations for those who want a softer course. The covered 5-Stand was a nice experience and the other 5-Stand was great practice for our next tournament. The staff was friendly and focused on a positive experience for all members and guests. They concentrate on the details! My only regret was that we were rained out on our return trip.

    What a wonderful facility! The course is beautifully arranged amongst the ridge tops and valleys. Every station is kept very neat and tidy. The equipment, including buttons and traps, all worked without even one malfunction. While the sporting class course was my favorite, the club also offers TWO separate 5-stand facilities, one of which is covered, the other is a 5-stand, trap, skeet combo setting. Both are exceptional! Perhaps the best part of the experience is the professionalism and courtesy of all the staff. They all take pride in making sure is running on greased grooves and visitors are made to feel like old friends. Great club.

    We have now visited the facility twice and both times (2008 and 2009) we were impressed with the layout of the course which was challenging. The path through the natural terrain and how each station was setup to use that areas advantages was great. We will definitely plan to attend again. The covered deck addition to the main office turned out nice. Thanks.

    We visited this club while vacationing near Sylva and we shot one round of 50 clays. We thoroughly enjoyed the layout, as it was quite a change from the flatland courses we’ve shot before. The hosts were also very gracious to us as visitors.
