Gun enthusiasts are coming from all over the place to take part in the 2013 US Open Sporting Clays Championships being held at the Back Woods Quail Club in Georgetown, South Carolina, just south of DeBordieu, from May13-19th, 2013.
Me….? I’ve never shot a gun. But for those who take their sport seriously, this is a huge event!
“Sporting clays is a form of clay pigeon shooting, often described as “golf with a shotgun” because a typical course includes from 10 to 15 different shooting stations laid out over natural terrain.
Unlike trap and skeet, which are games of repeatable target presentations, Sporting Clays simulates the unpredictability of live-quarry shooting, offering a great variety of trajectories, angles, speeds, elevations, distances, and target sizes.”
The Back Woods Quail Club has a great website with all the events, vendors, and even a page where you can keep up with the results. Click here to link to the site.
The DeBordieu Rental Office has quite a few sportsmen who have already made lodging arrangements at DeBordieu, but we do have room for more, so if you’ve not made plans, give them a call at 843-527-9894.
DeBordieu Colony is an oceanfront community located just south of Pawleys Island, South Carolina that features private golf and tennis, saltwater creek access to the ocean, a manned security gate, and luxury homes and villas surrounded by thousands of acres of wildlife and nature preserves.
