NEW GULF COAST SPORTING CLAYS COURSE
Corpus Christi Pistol and Rifle Club (CCPRC) is proud to announce the ribbon cutting and grand opening of it’s new
Sporting Clays course on Saturday December 16, 2017 at 10:30 am.
The new Sporting Clays course is a 16
station course on 45 acres. The landscaping was designed to look much like the
coastal grass plains of Texas with oak motts (groves) scattered around the
course with plenty of open area to set targets.
The Sporting Clays course is the
cumulation of a process started in May of 2015 with a Target Range Grant
application presented to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department by club
manager Craig Cook and sporting clays committee chairman Jeff Hyde (now
President of the Board of CCPRC).
The grant program with the Texas
Parks and Wildlife, through a federal assistance grant with the US Fish and
Wildlife Service (under the Federal Aid in Wildlife Restoration Act of 1937,
most often referred to as the Pittman–Robertson Act) is covering about 75% and
CCPRC the other 25% of the cost to build the course.
Act is funded with the taxes gun owners pay when they buy firearms and
ammunition. The course was designed by Heyward Cunningham of Promatic, Inc. Heyward comments that “the course will be a
target setters dream with all the open space and air in which to set and throw
Initially the course will be open on
Tuesday and Thursday from 1:00 pm to thirty minutes prior to sunset (about 5:00
pm in the winter), Wednesdays from 10:30 to thirty minutes prior to sunset,
Saturday and Sunday from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm.
The club will have golf carts for rent.
