Sporting Clays

The Cardinal Sporting Clays Facility offers a state-of-the-art target shooting experience. Designed to mimic wild bird hunting, sporting clay shooting is referred to as “golf with a shotgun” which involves the shooter going through a course set up with multiple shooting stations, each station different than the next.

We have 5-Stand and two complete sporting clays courses to choose from, one more geared towards the everyday shooter and the second course set up with more challenging, tournament shots.


Each course includes 16 elaborate shooting cabanas equipped with cutting-edge automated Promatic target machines. We offer rental guns, ammunition and eye & ear protection on site. Our Promatic automated system allows for individual shooters with an optional delay.


For any more questions, don’t hesitate to call the lodge (419) 253-0208.

Sporting Clays Map

CC Grounds Map 2020.png


Our facility offers 14 sheet fields. Skeet shooting involves eight shooting stations and two trap houses. Seven of the stations are arranged in a half moon between the two trap houses, and one station is directly between them. The high house, on the left side of the field, throws its targets from a trap 10 feet above the ground. The target rises to a height of 15 feet by the time it travels to the center of the field. The low house target, on the right side, leaves the trap house just 3-1/2 feet from the ground. It also rises to a height of 15 feet by the time it reaches the center of the field. There is a point where both targets can be broken with a single shotgun shell. This discipline provides good practice for sporting clays targets.
