Orvis Hill Country
Orvis Hill Country Shooting Grounds and Sporting Clays Course is now open to the public. Located in the rolling hills of southern Pennsylvania in the town of Blue Ridge Summit, Orvis Hill Country is just 25 minutes south of Gettysburg, and 1.5 hours from the Inner Harbor of Baltimore, Maryland and Washington, D.C.
Located on over 500 acres, this beautiful and historic property is the newest venue in the Orvis Shooting Grounds Collection, joining Orvis Sandanona and Orvis Pursell Farms as the premier sporting clays, upland hunting, and instructional shooting properties in the world.
Facing southeast on Haycock Mountain the original farmhouse, now part of the sporting lodge, and the barn were built around 1790 of hand-hewn chestnut beams which still carry the markings of the craftsmen who built them. This storied building with its rich 200-year history as a working farm, now houses the Orvis Pro Shop and provides amenities catering to sporting clays enthusiasts as well as Orvis Hill Country’s upland hunting members.
Orvis introduced one of the first sporting clays courses in the country at its Manchester, Vermont Shooting School and now operates two of the finest courses in the country at Sandanona and Pursell Farms. Orvis Hill Country will uphold this tradition beginning with a 15-station course that has been updated with new traps and beautiful new cages. For when you don’t have time to shoot the full course, Orvis Hill Country also offers a 5-Stand.
"Orvis Hill Country offers a bit of everything from shooting at elevation with a 10-mile view, to shooting into corn fields or into the woods."
