Yep open to public

Yep reservations necessary as it is a bit remote and "guides" need to schedule

Location is shown on the left in this page: Spirit Ridge Rifle Golf :: White's Valley, UT :: Call Today 1-435-764-6980

There are no other similar experiences in existence that I know of. This experience is a level or two above going to a range. And a level above ambushing rocks, due to the competitive nature of the sport.

It's a real live, high desert, mountain, sage brush experience. No trees. No shade. Hot and dry.

You best be prepared. That is fully ready to make that first cold bore shot every time.

Funner than heck.

Re: Vortex Optics Extreme Invitational a big hit

Thanks so much for the info Roy. It does sound like a great time. I had a similar idea to set up for fun with a group of shooters from our church but I would get hung up on safety issues with farmsteads off in the distance. We have some pretty open areas around here but it would worry me in the heat of competition if everyone would always be absolutely on top of their safety game. So it just remained an idea. The guides have got to help. And the really open terrain, LOL. Thanks again.

The "guides" do nothing but keep score and ensure the rules of the game.

The shooter team has to find find, range, engage and shoot the target all on their own. However, I've noticed, that if there is a group shooting together, the first shooter is at a bit of disadvantage. But the wind is the great equalizer.
