Remington Ammunition has opened the Remington Gun Club to the public and the inaugural spring sporting clays league is already underway. Only steps away from Remington’s historic ammunition factory in Lonoke, Ark., Big Green has also expanded the Gun Club with a new 13-station sporting clays course and has begun construction on an additional 12-station north course as well.

The Remington Gun Club was established in 1978, but it was closed by previous Remington company ownership. The firm’s new owners, however, have re-opened the gates to again welcome both novice and competitive shooters from across the country. A longtime destination for trap and skeet shooters, the club has added the state’s only sporting clays course that is open to the public. The new addition was made possible with the support of the Arkansas Game and Fish Foundation and the MidwayUSA Foundation.

“Everyone at Remington is really excited to see some action on this course and put some Remington lead down range,” said Joel Hodgdon, Remington’s director of marketing. “This is a remarkable facility. We have a ton of exciting events and tournaments planned for Remington fans and pros to get out here and break some clays.”

In addition to the re-opening the Gun Club, Remington is hosting its first spring Sporting Clays League. With two divisions—17 and younger and 18 and older—the league opened on April 6th and will continue through May 22nd. This six-week, 300-target league has weekly ammo winners, and added cash prizes.

Clay target enthusiasts can also improve their shooting skills from the expert instructors at the Gun Club, as well as purchase the world’s best shotshells such as Gun Club, Premier STS and Premier Nitro in the Pro Shop. The club is also set up to accommodate private events, including fundraisers, corporate meetings and even weekends away.
