James Valley Sporting Clays was started in 1987 as a warm-up for pheasant shooters before the hunt. As one of the original Sporting Clay courses in South Dakota, it began with 10 stations of hand throwers, but has now matured into more than 20 stations of electric machines. James Valley Sporting Clays has also been selected to host the South Dakota state championship in 2004, 2008, 2011 and the 2015 and will be hosing again in 2019.
Our breathtaking course covers more than 50 acres in the scenic James River Valley.
We have 4 RV hookups and a clubhouse that can accommodate numerous guests for corporate events, large parties, and family/friend reunions . With a 60 foot deck, river access, and fire pit we have the perfect getaway for most any occasion.
Over the years visitors have come from Alaska to Florida and New York to California for the amazing scenery, friendly hospitality, and of course the first rate targets. Our course offers a full spectrum of targets from rolling rabbits, to vertical teal, to crossing and overhead shots. We also have stations set up for every skill level from beginner to master class and everything in-between!
