Sporting Clays

at Orvis Sandanona

Orvis introduced one of the first sporting clays courses in the country at its Manchester, Vermont, Shooting School. Orvis Sandanona upholds this tradition with two courses, running simultaneously on the property.


Our Woodland Course is an 18-stand standard, listed in Esquire magazine’s top 10 list of courses in the United States. The Upland Course, new in summer of 2019, boasts 15 stands and expands your options at the property. The diversity of the courses, in addition to the regular refreshes, offers shooters an ever-changing challenge. A trapper will join you on the course, ensuring you have the best experience possible.


Must be at least 12 years old to participate. Please call ahead for reservations.
