LAS VEGAS – The driving carts and views of snow-capped mountains may lead you to believe you're at a golf course. But this Las Vegas complex has one major difference.
"What's different here is instead of having places in the golf cart to put your bags with your golf clubs in it, we have gun racks built in these carts and a place to put your ammunition," said Steve Carmichael, program administrator for the Clark County Shooting Complex.
The $3 million, "five-star" sporting clay course, located 25 minutes from the Las Vegas Strip at the Clark County Shooting Complex, offers 30 different shooting across 75 acres of land. The sport more commonly known as "golfing with guns" offers experienced shooters a chance to test out their skills.
"Every station offers a different type of shooting challenge," said Carmichael. "All the target launchers are different on each shooting station. It's made to simulate upland birds or maybe even game running on the ground."
And for those without experience, no worries.
"We can cover the whole gambit because we got people that can come out here with you and can show you how to do it," added Carmichael. "I have some excellent ringmasters that are glad to come out here and spend time with you."
The course is open to the public Sunday through Wednesday, with gun rentals starting at $20 and driving cart rentals for $50 a day.
