Southdown is the largest commercial shooting ground in the South East of England and is the perfect venue to host events and charity days. In the heart of the South Downs National Park, we are open all year round, so there are plenty of opportunities to host your important event.
Southdown Gun Club has been part of the local community for over 30 years, supporting charities with regular competitions and events. Alongside having fun and enjoying some fresh air, the venue is a great place to raise funds for your cause, providing a well organised and exciting spot for guests to have a great experience.
We have helped numerous charities with unique shooting events – a typical charity day starts with a breakfast roll on arrival giving you a chance to meet your guests, followed by a full safety briefing before the main event starts.
Regardless of your guests’ experience levels, we will provide suitable guns and ammunition on all the dedicated shooting positions, where a Southdown instructor will be ready to greet you and offer instruction as required. The dedicated course will be set up for your event with targets laid to suit the ability of the shooters. For those who don’t have the necessary safety gear, everything can be provided.
For a really fun end to the day’s shooting, why not add in a team flush where we launch multiple targets over a team of up to five shooters, with the highest combined score winning the mini event. Or add to it the “nats” challenge where one of our operators flies a remote-controlled plane over the team and points are awarded for hits on the wings, signalled by a thunder flash going off….
When the shooting has finished retire for some well-earned relaxation time before enjoying a fantastic lunch from our caterers, who have a range of menus to suit all requirements. Stay as long as you like and make the most of the fundraising opportunities with your guests.
