Not exactly golf and guns but Biltmore Mansion in Ashville, NC offers 5 Stand and Sporting Clays programs in addition to horseback riding, float trips, hiking, off road touring and other outdoor activities. The shooting programs offer professional instruction and gun rental as options.

NOT TRUE: There are many similarities - I have helped several golfers with their mental game using "stuff" that I pass on to my students.

Streamsong is an absolutely incredible place. While you are out shooting your wife will love the spa.

They built this place in the middle of nowhere and you have to make reservations just to go because they have gotten so busy.

The Boca Raton Hotel and Club had both back its day. During the 60's and 70's they had a skeet field and a trap field for the hotel guests to use, as well as a premier golf course as well. Its called the Boca Raton Resort and Club today. Alas, they closed the shooting fields in the early 80's when clay target shooting fell from popularity. Break em all Jeff
