    Visited this club while visiting on vacation. Club was clean, well staffed, friendly and overall a very plesant club to shoot at. Sporting clays field has 6 stations, fun but a little smaller than I am used to but they are looking to expand it to 10. I will shoot here again the next time I am in town.

    John & Candice are doing a great job. They are friendly, and try very hard to give the shooter a good experience, no mater what level of expertise. The sporting clays course has been upgraded significantly. The targets are changed monthly! Gary and John set the targets, and they are challenging. They plan to add more stations, which will be a real plus for the course. The course is neat and clean-the grass is cut and they pick up the hulls. A real upgrade! Support these folks. We need more shooting venues like this one.

    Started going there when I bought my first shotgun, been showing up periodically ever since! If memory serves 5 trap throwers and a skeet course. Very laid back place, well maintained. My favorite place to relax and pump a few hundred rounds at some clays!

    What a great and beautiful facility. John (owner) and the staff could not have been more helpful. We showed up at 5PM on Friday to rent guns and shoot a few rounds of trap and skeet. As newbies, we needed a little help which they so generously gave. Natasha did a great job operating the skeet range for us and there were some experienced folks who provided some great advice. As we were leaving the crowd was building for the Friday evening Oakley. Thanks for a fantastic time!

    Visited Urbandale Gun Club for the first time last Saturday. Met the very friendly owner and had a great time. Nice facility. Lots of experienced shooters who are willing to give advice if asked. Great for people who are new to the sport. We are returning soon.

    Went to Urbandale for the first time Saturday February 22nd 2014. Very friendly new owner, although I never knew the old one as it is my first time. Also my first time shooting trap. What I assume was an employee came over and helped my buddies and taught us some extremely helpful tips for shooting trap. I was amazed at how helpful he was. It’s an awesome atmosphere, some gun clubs could be intimidating for first timers…not this one. Felt so at home I went back Sunday and shot 3 more rounds of trap. I’ll be a frequent visitor to Urbandale. Especially when it warms up!

    Just stopped in to Urbandale this weekend and met the new owner, his wife, and all six children. Great young family with high hopes to improve the club. One of the machines wasn’t oscillating properly and they had a puller sit in the trap house moving the machine manually. Kinda cool to see an owner do what ever it takes to make the customer happy.

    I visited Urbandale several weeks ago and since have joined a skeet league, and intend to keep it up from now on, they have a very friendly and helpful atmosphere to new folks just learning or have been target shooting awhile, trap & skeet both are available.

    What a well run facility. In the past two years this facility has made great strides in improving its operation. The Trap and Skeet fields are well kept and function consistently and the entire facility has been upgraded. I have yet to try out the Sporting Clays but plan on a trip this weekend. Will keep you posted.

    What an improvement from the previous Urbandale I knew a decade back. Vince and the gang have really turned it up and the facility looks great. The club house and grounds are well kept and the website is easily navigated. Major improvements have been made and the addition of the sporting clays really takes it over the top. Great Job! This is definitely a club I will visit again.

    I just recently started shooting trap and skeet at urbandale, i must say i am very happy going there. Everyone is very friendly and helpful. This weekend coming up they are going to be opening their sporting clays. The employees are very nice, that past two time i have gone i had the same puller who is very nice and can take a joke, not to mention how to dish them out. I would recommend urbandale to anyone who likes to shoot and wants to go for there first time.

    2009 is the year i began trap shooting I took my first lesson there after a friend brought me out i haven’t turned back. The people there are great and are willing to help you out anyway they can, i see lots of improvements going on to make the place a great place to shoot.I joined the fall league and had a blast i plan on shooting winter league also. I wish all of them the best of luck and am looking forward to many years of shooting at Urbandale. Thanks to all of you for your support.

    I am a true beginner in trap and skeet and have just discovered Urban Dale. Everyone I’ve met there has been very helpful and very nice . Thank you to Butch who gave me a lesson in skeet shooting on my very first round. It appears the new owners are making a lot of upgrades to the facility because every time I’ve been there they have been working on the buildings etc.

    I started shooting trap in August 2008. I had heard a number of disparaging comments made about Urbandale from quite a few experienced shooters. About the only reason I decided to give this place a chance was because it is located close to me. But, when I arrived the first time one of the new owners gave me a tour, took me down to pattern my new shotgun, then took me to a trap field and walked me through my first round while giving me tips on how to shoot more consistent and hit more birds. I have since met all the owners, joined a league and have shot at a couple private members only clubs so I have something to compare Urbandale to. I would not hesitate to bring anyone there, experienced shooter or brand new. The place is clean, well run, the equipment works, the staff is professional, the coffee is “OK” (but free makes it better). The stories about how it used to be I guess are accurate, but as bad as it used to be it is pretty much the exact opposite now.

    We found the Urbandale Club via their website after searching for a shooting range in Madison. What an excellent place to shoot! We received a top notch skeet shooting lesson from the owner, and by the end of the excellent tutorial session were hitting the targets well! Everyone was extraordinarily friendly and the site was well-appointed and clearly being lovingly developed. We are looking forward to future sessions.

    This facility has made drastic improvements in the past six months. New owners have invested a lot of time and money to improve this facility dramatically. I started shooting there about a year and a half ago and it was in very sorry shape. The machines were in disrepair and the whole facility was just barely adequate to shoot at. New owners took over sometime in the late spring of 2007 and in a very short time have made substantial improvements. Both skeet fields are not operable and the trap ranges are much better. Voice activated pullers are just one of the improvements. All the machines have been overhauled or replaced and the club house is in the process of being remodeled. Overall this is a very pleasant place to shoot and the continued improvements make it even better.

    I have been shooting on a league at this club on and off for twenty years. It used to be a very nice place to shoot when it was owned by Eli and Helen Combs, both professional shooters for many years. They sold it to a “group of individuals” about eight or ten years ago and I’m sad to say it has gone steadily down hill ever since. The equipment is in poor working order and the owners refuse to do anything other than “patch it up” yet they increase the shooting fees every year. There are eight traps but only four are working at all and the two skeet fields are falling apart. The only reason I still go there occasionally (I’m no longer on the league) is it is the only place close by my home. As an added note, the last year I shot on the league was 2003 and there were always ten or more teams. This year there are only four teams.

    What a waste of a once beautiful facility!
