Remington Ammunition is rolling out the welcome mat at the Remington Gun Club, opening the facility to the public. Only steps away from the company’s historic ammunition plant in Lonoke, Arkansas, Big Green recently expanded the club with a new 13-station sporting clays course, also starting construction on a 12-station north course.
In addition, the revitalized Remington Gun Club is hosting the inaugural spring Sporting Clays League using the new 13-station course. Spanning two divisions, 17 and younger and 18 and older, the league opened on April 6 and will continue through May 22. This six-week, 300-target league boasts weekly ammunition winners and additional cash prizes.
Established in 1978, but closed by previous Remington company ownership, Big Green’s new owners have re-opened the gates of the club to again welcome both novice and competitive shooters from around the country. A longtime destination for trap and skeet shooters, the club has added the only sporting clays course open to the public in Arkansas, thanks to support of the Arkansas Game and Fish Foundation and the MidwayUSA Foundation.
“Everyone at Remington is really excited to see some action on this course and put some Remington lead down range,” said Joel Hodgdon, Remington’s director of marketing. “This is a remarkable facility. We have a ton of exciting events and tournaments planned for Remington fans and pros to get out here and break some clays.”
At the Remington Gun Club in Arkansas, clay target enthusiasts can also improve their shooting skills from expert instructors, as well as purchase Gun Club, Premier STS and Premier Nitro shotshells in the Pro Shop.
Additionally, the Remington Gun Club can accommodate private events such as fundraisers, corporate meetings or just a weekend away from it all.
