Southern Sporting Clay Classic

Southern Sporting Clay Classic

Friday, November 3, 2017

McConnell Hall Plantation
4040 Midway Road, Anderson, SC 29621

Join us for our 1st annual Southern Sporting Clay Classic at McConnell Hall Plantation to benefit Southern Wesleyan University.

Shooters will enjoy an afternoon of clay shooting on two courses (Plantation Course and Farm Pond Course) at beautiful McConnell Hall Plantation in Anderson! The Plantation Course will host the Sporting Clay competition (30 shots) and the Farm Pond Course will be a “fun” shoot with clays being launched over water (unlimited shots). This is a beautiful area to shoot and offers great views and angles for shooters of all skill levels!

The Southern Sporting Clay Classic is not your average run of the mill sporting clay tournament, it is an experience!! Not only will you experience two shooting locations, you will also enjoy a Southern Lowcountry Boil dinner with oyster appetizers, an assortment of prizes and much more! We are limiting the event to just 40 shooters, and one lucky shooter will win a brand new gun! The Southern Sporting Clay Classic will raise funds for the SWU Promise Fund, which supports student scholarships and areas of greatest need for the University.
