Course Design

Worldwide Sporting Clays Course Design Services


Installing a mini high tower at a private ranch in Oklahoma.

I have installed Promatic clay target machines for over 20 years on both sides of the Atlantic but I have now decided to install Apex/MEC machines. The Apex Company has recently been taken over by Mayville Engineering Company who are also known for their quality shot-shell reloaders. I believe the merger of the two companies will produce a range of clay target machines that in terms of reliability and performance will be unbeatable in this industry.

Mini "High" Towers

Mini "High" Towers
These "single stem" towers, up to 30 feet high, are built to my design. Each tower will fit unobtrusively behind a tree to simulate dove shots. The carriage on each tower holds two machines and each machine will rotate through 360 degrees. The complete tower can also be rotated through 360 degrees around the base, which makes changing the target flight line an easy operation for one person.

Super Sporting Courses

Super sporting layouts are becoming increasingly popular for non-commercial recreational layouts for the private landowner. By carefully selecting optimum machine positions, these layouts maximize target presentation but minimize the number of machines involved. Instead of "hard" wiring, (which is often a maintenance nightmare), wireless remotes are used to release the machines. This will maximize machine permutations and present multiple shooting positions.
