Sporting Clays

Rated one of the best facilities in the country, N.S.C.A. Level III Instructor, Mike Mohr meticulously designed three challenging paved courses which includes a super sporting course that take advantage of the natural beauty of the surrounding Laurel Highlands. Great for novice and competitive shooters of all ages.

What is sporting clays? Patience. Precision. But mostly exhilaration! Often times described as “golf with a shotgun.” Unlike trap and skeet, sporting clays targets are thrown in a great variety of trajectories, angles, speeds, elevations and distances, which simulates actual hunting conditions.

Sporting Clays Courses & Rates

Seven Springs Sporting Clays complex features three courses: two standard courses and one super sporting course, with multiple stations. There is also a practice area with two five-stands, one of which is heated. The facility will also play host to a variety of tournaments, private lessons and corporate and non-profit events.


The five stand at Seven Springs Sporting Clays is three-quarters enclosed, heated, covered and handicapped accessible. Not only can you shoot in poor weather this winter, but you can shoot and practice in the evening because the five stand is also illuminated.

A regulation five stand has five shooting positions, but ours has seven. In addition to the regular use of the five stand, our instructors can simultaneously offer lessons to shooters throughout the winter months while staying comfortable and warm. We also relocated more trap machines to the five stand to offer more target presentations than a typical regulation five stand.
