Cedar Creek Sporting Clays

Located in Cedarville, NJ

While shooting the Delaware River Classic in Pennsville, NJ, I had some free time after the prelim. One of guys on my squad suggested I head over to Cedar Creek Sporting Clays to shoot a round. He told me it was less than an hour away, it was a fun place to shoot, and the owner was a nice guy. He was right on all three counts.

The road leading into the club is a good indication of what the course is going to be like, a thick forest. After I arrived, owner Joe Scull offered to show me around and shoot a few stations to me. We ended up shooting the whole course together. Cedar Creek has 17 stations with two shooting positions each, one labeled “practice” and one labeled “tournament.” The thing that sets Joe’s shooting positions apart from most clubs is that he actually has three machines at each station. This allows for completely different target presentations from each position, not just different angles. This also lets you to set the course to your own difficulty level.

I struggled at some of the stations. I’m used to shooting everything silhouetted against a bright blue sky. But as Joe kept saying, “you’ve got to look at the targets.” Once I followed his lead, I started doing much better. Since night was falling and I had to get back to Philadelphia for a cheese steak, I said my goodbyes and I was on the road.

If you’re looking for a place to practice your “in the woods” game, this is the place to do it.
