Featured Amenity | Retriever Training
This year you might have heard the words “back!” and “over!” echoing in the early morning hours instead of the more familiar “pull!” It’s our club members who utilize the club grounds during non-core hours for dog training, and it’s become one of the club’s more popular outdoor activities. It is getting harder and harder to find property close to Houston to train and work sporting and hunting dogs, and the club’s ponds and fields provide a great alternative!

Always with an eye on safety, the dog trainers have been out in the hours before we open the club to shooters, both during the week and on weekends. If you’d like to take advantage of the opportunity, please contact Kevin by clicking here.

Join us on Wednesday and Thursday for an afternoon of shooting and an evening of family, food, and fun!

2020/2021 Winter Night League!
The first Winter Night League (WNL) was a huge success so we are going to do it again!

The WNL will run from December 2nd to January 28th. League nights will be Wednesday and Thursday evenings with the course opening at 6:00pm and closing at 9:00pm.

The format as the same as last year. You are welcome to shoot both Wednesday and Thursday with your highest score being used for league scoring.

The shooting is all European rotation, meaning you can start anytime you like provided you are finished by 9:00pm.

After week three is complete, classes will be assigned and will remain the same for the duration of the league.

Your class is determined by a modified Lewis Class system using your two highest scores from the first three weeks. Scores will be posted on iClays.

Awards will be presented to 1st and 2nd place in each class. There will also be a Greater Ladies concurrent!

*Note: If during the league GHSC management feels that participation is too great to support European rotation format we will switch to a squaded format.
