Hey LO! New course for you to check out!

From SGW:

I'm excited to announce that the two year build out of Garland Mountain Sporting Clays has finally been completed. The grand opening is this Saturday, May 14th., 2016. This beautiful facility is located just North of Atlanta, Georgia in Cherokee County on Garland Mountain near the town of Waliska. Access is off of I-75 North and Georgia Hwy 140 East. This premier facility has two fifteen station sporting clays courses with covered shooting stations overlooking the Blue Ridge mountains. They have 5-stand and wobble trap as well and an inventory of new Ez-Go carts for rent. This club also offers a large club house with a pro-shop and on-site food service. The web site: Garland Mountain Sporting Clays has more details. If you live or travel anywhere near Atlanta, Greenville, S.C., Chatt,. Tn., be sure to visit this club.
If you make it up that way, take some pics and let us know about it.

Thanks 1 oz!
I visited the website and liked what I saw.
I had planned to shoot at another event this weekend, but I am tempted.

I looked at their website, it looks really nice, prices are reasonable, I'd like to visit - but two miles on a gravel road is not going to help their business, I'm thinking. I'm sure not going to drive 4 hours to travel that.

I have yet to see a sporting clays public course that had a paved road all the way from the main road. Some of those gravel roads are better than the worn out "paved" roads

Several miles on a gravel road is fairly typical for rural sporting clays.
I'll post pics of the Garland event.

Yep, they offer paved roads but only ONE sporting clays course. Better to have two graveled than one paved.

That is why Noontootla is not on the GSCA circuit.

That doesn't mean I will never shoot NC, it looks nice.
Anytime you want to shoot NC let me know and we will give it a whirl.

Myself and about 10-12 others shoot there every Friday, weather permitting. They change a few stations on the course every week. I am glad they are not part of the GSCA circuit. It's a nice course run by some very friendly people. There is no GSCA BS to put up with, just a fun bunch having fun breaking clay's.

HUH?? Considering this is about a registered shoot coming up this Saturday, that would mean they ARE part of the GSCA. And exactly WHAT BS are you talking about? Those folks do a good job and the upcoming state shoot in Savannah will be awesome. Last year's at Big Red Oak was very well done.

Let's agree to drop the GSCA issue and focus on what we both like to do.
Blast clays.
I am open for a shoot at the NC club with you and your buds at a convenient date.
Let's keep this friendly.
Any ideas?
