Health & Safety

We strongly recommend that ALL shooters wear earphones & protective glasses for your own safety.

New Shooters & Beginners:-

For Health & Safety reasons members or guests who HAVE NOT SHOT BEFORE or have only limited experience are required to book a lesson rather than a sporting or DTL round . Alternatively we would be more than happy to cater for their needs by pre booking a Have‑A‑Go session.

Non Licence Holders/ Novice or Inexperienced Shooters:-

If you are a non licence holder novice or inexperienced shooter, you must call us and pre book a caddied sporting round. We will then organise an caddie to accompany you around the grounds. We do not allow sharing of guns.

For Health & Safety reasons members or guests who HAVE NOT SHOT BEFORE or have only limited experience are required to book a lesson rather than a sporting or DTL round . Alternatively we would be more than happy to cater for their needs on a Have‑A‑Go session.

We are delighted to welcome novice guests to the ground, but it is unfair on your fellow shooters to bring a novice guest and expect him or her to keep up with experienced shooters. Similarly, at NO time may anyone bring a novice guest and "instruct" them on the ground.

Age Limits:-

The age limit for Have‑a‑Go is 12 years old. If younger children wish to shoot we will be happy to book them in for a lesson with one of our experienced instructors. Please call us to discuss this and we can advise you on the best way to start your child shooting.
