Great bonding experiene
Jul 2021
Came across Dragon Clay Sports whilst looking for something different on a family visit to nearby Porthcawl. Booked via The big Shoot - though would recommend going direct to the club (as we will do for future visits). It caters for all abilities and you do not need to have any prior experience at all. Our teenage group was mixed with one never having shot; one done a small amount and one who has shot a fair bit.

The club is (currently) open Tuesday-Saturday and is situated a little out of Ewenny. It is difficult to find if you don't know where you are going (I'll post more about this later). It is recommended that you arrive 15 mins before your shoot time, though we had real problems locating the venue and arrived late - luckily, on this occasion it was ok, though I was mortified.

There were a number of people shooting and the whole club had a relaxed, friendly feel - despite the sounds of the shot. The club members (don't want to call them staff) were warm, friendly, patient and ultra knowledgeable giving advice and help throughout the session.

All equipment is provided including ear defenders and safety is paramount with the guns put away in bags when not in use. Our group was taken to a couple of different sites to try different methods of shooting (air to simulate birds and ground to simulate rabbits). My nephew, who has never shot before, really enjoyed it and said he would again as he lives locally.

There are soft drinks (cans) and tea and instant coffee available for £1 - though I couldn't see any food offerings - there is deli in the village store that you pass if you wanted to take something with you.

To find: This isn't easy - made harder by the sign being broken and on the floor behind a post. However, if you access via the B44265, turn left just before Ewenny Garden Centre, then bear right onto Wick Road immediately after the Village Store. When the road forks, stay right (on single track road) and travel up the hill for around 500yards. There is a large opening on the right just past the driveway on the left, with a deeply rutted track through a gate down the side of a field.

PLEASE NOTE, THERE ARE NO GUNS/EQUIPMENT LEFT HERE WHEN THE CLUB ISN'T OPEN.

To sum up: Not a cheap one, but the teens had a fabulous time and a great shared experiece they wouldn't have had anywhere else. They are a small, welcoming group so give them a call.

Excellent fun!
Dec 2019 • Family
We decided to give this a go on a sunny but cold December day. The instructors were fantastic. Really friendly and great and giving pointers. It was my first time but got the hang of it quite quickly with the expert guidance offered. Would recommend!

Only advice is don’t wear your nice shoes as it can get quite muddy.

Family shoot
May 2017 • Friends
Had the most fun and enjoyable time learning how to shoot with the family all over 20
The chaps were amazing honing the shooting skills. Two of our party had been to a shoot before but the quality of this was second to none they were so friendly and supportive and a great time was had by all.
Fantastic value for money .

Great Team Building Event
Mar 2017
We had a group of 14 of us on an afternoon's team building at Dragon Clay, a mixture of ages, gender and mostly complete novices at clay pigeon shooting. Bob, Phil and the rest of the team at Dragon Clay were tremendous, splitting us into 3 groups so that we were always kept busy, varying the targets and were extremely helpful and knowledgeable. With the help of the instructors soon everyone was hitting clays and despite the cold a great time was had by all and lots of the group are already planning their next visit; my next visit was the next morning with my son, but that's another review...

Went for an introductory shoot with some guys that had never shot before, we did 50 clays each, very helpful and experienced instructor got the lads breaking clays straight away. Everyone had a great morning, and the complimentary sausage and bacon roll and cuppa were well received in the club house.
Well recommended.

My friend and I decided to give clay shooting a go, because we were looking for a new sport. We were complete beginners, with no previous experience. We were welcomed and felt completely part of the friendly team there. We were given excellent tuition by Bob. It was a relaxing, stimulating and extremely fun day out. We felt encouraged and supported. Can't wait to go back! Would highly recommend.

I took a friend there, who had never shot at clays before, and, in fact, was also new to shotgun shooting. We were looked after by Phil and his team and made to feel very welcome. I've known Phil (the owner of the club) for many years and he is a friendly guy. Go there and give it a go, I'm sur you'll enjoy it.

Fantastic day out
Sep 2016 • Couples
Went for a 25 clay shoot with instruction as total beginners. They could not have been nicer or more friendly. Really made us feel at ease and were very helpful.
Had a fantastic shoot and we both hit some clays. They were encouraging when I wasn't able to hit much and really tried to help me to get a hit. Will definitely go back!

A great place to go if you are a beginner and want a relaxed first go with great instruction and encouragement.

Great fun with expert tuition
Feb 2016 • Family
What a great find! We were bought lessons as a Christmas present and visited today in the most horrific weather conditions consisting of heavy rain with winds. Despite the weather, we had a great time and were given great tuition by Bob who runs the club. We have a 13 year old son who also had a go on a slightly lighter shotgun. We felt very safe and all of us were able to shoot on target with Bob"s expert advice. Was surprised at how busy it was, especially with the weather conditions so bad. Everyone was very friendly and food was available in the club house together with free tea and coffee. Would certainly recommend this facility for anyone looking for a slightly different activity and especially if you're looking for an unusual gift for someone.
