What will your experience look like?

  • Upon your arrival, our welcoming mountain-view lodge will be your first stop, where you’ll be greeted by one of our friendly hosts. Your host will guide you through the available shooting options and assist you in getting the necessary gear, which may include a rental gun, ammunition, eye and ear protection. Any questions you may have will be promptly addressed by your host.
  • You’ll then be provided with a four-passenger Utility-Terrain Vehicle, which you’ll load up with your equipment before heading to one of our stunning mountain-view courses. If this is your first visit to Garland Mountain, your host will accompany you to the initial course station, ensuring you’re well-versed in safety protocols and rules. They will also demonstrate how to operate our target launching system and offer valuable tips for effectively hitting those clay targets.
  • Your group will take turns aiming at clay targets soaring through the skyline. Spread throughout the course, you’ll find 14 shooting stations, each offering a unique target presentation. Typically, guests spend approximately 2 to 2.5 hours on the course, honing their shooting skills and enjoying the thrill of the sport.
  • After a rewarding session of target smashing, you’ll return to the lodge, where our mountain-view grill awaits. Our culinary offerings will tantalize your taste buds, elevating your already memorable experience. To cap off your visit, we also feature a full bar where you can unwind and savor your achievements after a thrilling day of shooting.
