Top-Notch Shooting Experience: Spectacular Grounds, Fantastic Staff, and Challenging Targets Await!

This is probably my favorite club I’ve been to!  Amazing grounds, amazing staff and people, and amazing targets. They have made really good use of the ground they have and thrown the targets really well.  Good luck shooting the Big Boy!

Thrilling Shooting Experience: Beautiful Facility, Supportive Staff, and Unforgettable Targets Await at Smoke Rise Gun Club!

Smoke Rise Gun Club is a beautiful facility! The staff is very helpful and are willing to help you out with any questions you may have. The sporting course is a great layout and excellent targets. The Big Boy 5 Stand was a humbling experience to say the least, but absolutely fun to shoot! FITASC was set up wonderfully. I will definitely be back to shoot at Smoke Rise again and I recommend it to everyone who loves shooting.

A Weekend Delight at Smoke Rise: Shooting, Scenic Views, and Warm Hospitality Make for a Memorable Escape!

I recently had the pleasure of visiting Smoke Rise while on a weekend getaway to Lake Toxaway with a group of family and friends, and it was quite a treat to shoot clays and enjoy a delicious lunch on the pavilion! Hal Cottingham was a very gracious host and the other club members we interacted with were extremely welcoming and genuinely interested in our experience. The clays course presented a good mix of fun and challenging targets with beautiful views nestled in the woods. We were also lucky enough to observe some expert shooters on the “Big Boy” Five Stand – very impressive!

It’s clear that there has been a lot of time, money and effort dedicated to developing this shooting property and it has definitely paid off. I look forward to the next opportunity to visit in the future!
