Southdown Gun Club and Shooting School is your first choice in Sussex if you are looking for a shooting ground that is open every week during the year to host your event.

Southdown is located in the heart of the beautiful Sussex countryside, within easy driving distance from Brighton and Horsham, both of which are less that 30 minutes away from the shooting ground. Southdown is the perfect location for a party, celebration or corporate team building activity. Located in the middle of several hundred acres of the Muntham Farm Estate, you will have access to our award winning clay shooting range, where you will soon be busting clays.

The have-a-go shooting area is specifically designed to cater for people who may not have shot before, with a range of targets that will see everybody breaking clays before the end of the session. We can cater for groups of up to 100 participants and a typical group size will have a ratio of 6 participants to one instructor. All our shooting experiences include a qualified shooting instructor, a safety briefing, all the necessary personal protective equipment, a shotgun suitable to your size and stature, light load ammunition and the targets.

In each session the group will rotate through the different shooting positions, each will have a different target presentation, targets are set to replicate different wild quarry and will include high crows, fast away teal, running rabbits to mention a few. You can keep a tally of the hits and at the end announce the “High Gun” winner.

There are several packages to choose from, the have-a-go, sessions start at 25/30/50/60 clays targets, the most popular being the 30 target shoot. If you want to try your hand with an automatic shotgun or a pump action, we have the Top Gun add on, which includes 18 or 24 shots with either the three shot auto or the 3 shot pump action shotgun. During the Southdown Top Gun session, you will be able to shoot at up to three targets in the air at the same time and really test your skills on the auto shooting range.

Some feedback from a recent stag event:

“May I take this opportunity to sincerely thank Greg and all at Southdown Gun Club for allowing me to hold Kevin Bishop’s stag do on your site . From the moment we arrived till the instructors took us shooting it was first class service. My special thanks extends to Fiona who made the whole experience fun and gave clear advice and help to the people who hadn’t shot before. Keep up the amazing job you all do!”
