How does this differ from a Golf Outing?
Golf Outings are old news. We’ve been there and done that.
Clay Outings offer a new, and exciting way to enjoy a unique fundraising event. Simply put – it’s a lot of fun.
What safety precautions have been implemented in 2021 for COVID-19:
The range is owned by Suffolk County and follows guidelines as mandated by New York State.
Masks are required at all times.

Buffet food will be handled by servers. Self-serve is not permitted this year.
Squad member names must be confirmed prior to the event for contact tracing. No day-of substitutions are permitted.

Is sporting clays like skeet or trap?
Sporting clays are designed to simulate field shooting and mimic the flight path of gamebirds (flushing, crossing, incoming), as well as rabbits running across the ground. You’ll move from station to station where new target presentations are thrown in pairs (usually 3-4 pairs per station).
Do I need experience?
No! Even if you’ve never held a firearm, our instructors will have you breaking targets in no time! A quick training session will precede the event.
Do I need my own 12-gauge or 20-gauge?
No. The range provides both.
Can I bring my own 12-gauge or 20-gauge?
How many targets will be thrown?
100 clay targets.
How long does it take to complete the course?
You can expect to spend three hours on the course depending on the number of clays thrown and the size of your squad.
Do I need to bring anything?
1. Close-toed hiking shoes or boots are recommended for your safety.
2. Bring sunglasses or eye protection, if possible. Eye protection (required) is available for purchase at the clubhouse. Please note, polycarbonate lenses or glass (this is at least 2.00mm thick in the center of the lens) provides the best eye protection.
3. Ear protection (squishy plugs) are provided at no charge.
Do I need to sign any release forms?
By checking the terms and conditions box upon checkout, you already agreed to the terms and conditions for you and/or your squad. No additional form is required.

Can I drink alcohol?
No. The range is owned by the Suffolk County Department of Parks and Recreation. No alcoholic beverages or recreational drugs are allowed prior to or during shooting. No one will be allowed to participate in any activity if deemed to be under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
A firearm can only be loaded when you are in the station, the firearm is over the front rail and the target area is deemed clear and safe. At all times, the firearm shall be unloaded and placed on a rack or carried vertically with the action open.
When leaving any station or path area, participants must ensure that the firearm is unloaded and the action is open and carried in a vertical position.
All mounts must be taken from inside a station by one person at a time. Mounting from anywhere else including next to or in front of a station is strictly prohibited. ONLY wheelchair participants are permitted to participate directly next to a station when it is deemed safe.
No practice mounts or swings are allowed except while in the station and the gun pointed downrange.
Any infraction of these rules will result in the loss of privileges and possible expulsion from the property, without a refund.
