Tampa Bay Sporting Clays is more than just a shooting range. We’re located on 260 acres of wooded terrain and provide a unique facility for the Tampa Bay area perfect for an afternoon away or for a corporate event.
Their skeet range has eight shooting stations and two trap houses. Seven of the eight stations are arranged half-moon between the two trap houses, and the eighth station is positioned 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 travels to the center of the field and rises to a height of 15 feet. On the right side, the low house throws its targets from only 3½ feet, but they also rise to 15 feet by the time they reach the center of the field. Each skeet round contains 25 targets.
We would like to express our sincere gratitude to our esteemed sponsors, and all those who generously provided in-kind contributions. Your invaluable support has been instrumental in making our event a resounding success.
