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!
