Northeast Florida Clay Target Clubs Map
I blew up the web page I was maintaining on club locations in Northeast Florida and put the clubs on Google Maps. A much needed conversion and easy to get directions via Google.
If you have a question I may be able to answer, as I've visited a number of the clubs, but not all. For recent information best to contact the club directly.
The Flagler club is best visited by contacting the club (or a member) prior to a visit, as entry is gate controlled via a member issued gate card reader.
The St. Augustine Skeet Club is private, but in my experience most receive permission to shoot if you talk to whoever is running the club that day. If they have an event or membership function you will most likely be turned away. A beautiful looking club.
The Jacksonville club sporting clays course can be busy on weekends. They have golf cart rentals and recommended you take advantage, as a long course. Rumor is they may open a second course. Non-member skeet and trap rates in the $9 range per round.
The Volusia club is busy in the winter months. Very difficult at times to shoot two times, back to back. We try to game arrival time to miss waits. In the winter, this club could be the most active Skeet & Trap club on the east coast. The also have 5-stand. Very reasonable shoot and membership fees. A large staff of volunteer workers.
The Amelia club has loaner guns. New shooter friendly.
If you have never shot Olympic Bunker Trap, the Gator club is the place to visit. Contact the club prior to visit to ensure the bunker will be open.
* I've been informed after this posting the Gator club has loaner guns and in addition to the Olympic bunker which will be opened anytime anybody comes, the club has completely redone the 5 Stand.
The Okefenokee Sporting Clays Club is in Georgia, just over the border. I last shot at the club maybe 7-8 years back. I paid a visit this year on a weekend and no one was at the club. The clubs web site did not indicate a closure. Recommend you call before travel.
The Saltwater's club in St. Augustine is west of the airport. Recently opened to the public. Two courses, one for the big boys (and girls). Only shot there a few time and enjoyed are visits.
Bradford has two sporting clays courses (but can expand to three). A fun friendly course and one for the more experienced. Also, two 5-stands.
The Palatka club is a club we usually shoot in the middle of the week. Seven skeet fields and you can usually get one to get in some serious practice, even if you just want to stay on one station. A PAT Trap has supposedly been purchased to replace an old Winchester on the clubs lone trap field, but it had not been installed as of are last visit. Your responsible for opening individual fields and if your the last shooter on the field, your responsible for filling the machines, policing the field, and closing the field.
