Saint Hubert’s Lodge and Club is a private sporting clays club in New York State about 1.5 hours north of mid-town Manhattan and New York City. Access to this exclusive private club is only available to our Club Members, overnight guests, and through the limited number of private events.
Sporting clays is often affectionately referred to as “Golf with a Shotgun.”
Sporting clays courses present different simulations at each station, similar to how a golf course has different presentations at each hole. This ensures that each course offers a challenge and a unique experience.
Saint Hubert’s course sits within our 165-acre property. The course is set in what was formerly an apple orchard and grape vineyard farm from our property’s previous life. This helped decide the layout of the course, as it branches out from the main “trunk” like a tree. The Promatics designed sporting clays course includes 11 stations, a flurry machine, tower, and teaching academy! Whether you’re a total beginner to sporting clays or a seasoned expert, our course has something for you.
The Academy is available for private individual and group lessons to all skill levels including novice through master class, men, ladies, and youth. Instructional clinics will also be held throughout the year so be sure to sign up for our newsletter to learn more about upcoming clinics.
