We are excited to announce Saint Charles Sportsman’s Club will now open our Sporting Clays course to Full Members on Tuesdays andThursdays beginning at 9am. Effective Tuesday July 9th we will begin a 90-day trial July through September. As a reminder, safety is everyone’s responsibility, and we expect members to always consider safety first.

 

Full members will follow the same process used for off hours access to Skeet and Trap venues with one exception, members Will Not Open the Sporting venue. The Sporting venue will be opened only by the club.

 

It is important to understand, the club will not be open to sell ammunition or load target keys Tuesday & Thursday mornings. Members must sign-in the 3-ring binder in the club house located where the member work hours books and Trap sign-in books are located adjacent to the club counter.  

 

It is also important to understand the club may decide Not to Open Sporting clays course due to the threat of weather. As in the past, we will always do our best communicating to members as soon as possible. Many times, this is a last-minute decision when weather is questionable. On these days especially pay close attention to your email and our website for updates.
