Awesome setup and excellent coaching from Dale. I've always shot right handed and been a terrible shot. Dale identified I was left eye dominant and got me to try left handed. Started hitting almost everything, a massive improvement and I'm bloody pumped! Cheers Dale, very cool setup, round the ponds and in the bush with allsorts of traps firing different targets. Awesome place!

I booked this for my husband's birthday and included my son for company. My husband and son had an absolute blast, (apologies for the pun). Dale was easy going, funny and welcoming. He is so knowledgable and made suggestions to assist in hitting the targets. We will be back!

"Just wanted to thank you for the great day we had at your place. The meeting went well, the hut was perfect. But the highlight was obviously the claybird shooting. Thank you Dale for mixing it up well & you certainly made the inexperienced bunch of shooters that we were, feel as if we knew what we were doing. There were quite a few outside their comfort zones & they haven't stopped talking about it, which is great!"

Had an amazing time clay target shooting! There were a few nerves for some to begin with, but Dale's relaxed fun nature had the girls shooting clays outta the sky in no time! Everyone was buzzing about it afterwards. Highly recommend to everyone!! Thank you Dale

"I had high expectations for my Stag Do ... and I wasn't disappointed! The minibus rolled into Carodale Country Estate and the perfect atmosphere was set for was a fantastic "do" for everybody. We were met with great hospitality, professional coaching, excellent Clay Target Shooting and magnificent facilities. The relaxed atmosphere flowed with a whole lot of laughs and endless good times had by all throughout the day. The Ozzy fellas are still talking about it! The next time I get married I'd do it again!"

As part of a stag doo we started our day at Carodale Clay Target Shooting. Dale and Carol were excellent to deal with. The shooting was a great way to kick the day off and a good way to get some friendly competition going. There was a rewarding prize for the top shooter and a bit of a surprise for the worst. I'd highly recommend!

Carodale Sporting Clays is a truly unique, exciting and safe shooting experience located only 25 minutes north of downtown Auckland. I have thoroughly enjoyed shooting in their private valley on many occasions including one-on-one instruction, recreational shooting with friends & family, club tournaments, but mostly corporate client functions. Dale & Carol are highly skilled to provide experienced and first-timers excellent instruction and a fun time. Over the years I have taken many senior executives from some of New Zealand leading companies & they have all enjoyed this unique experience. These clients have been both male & female, young and old & from all walks of life and the result is always the same ... a huge smile with sense of satisfaction and achievement. I recommend Carodale Sporting Clays to many friends and business contacts and they have always returned as satisfied customers.

" I wanted to take the time to thank the staff of Carodale for the wonderful corporate event you hosted. The environment is spectacular and being only 30 minutes from downtown Auckland makes it very accessible. Undeniably a magnificent relaxed yet exciting environment to spend quality time with our clients and partners. Regarding the shooting, Dale provided a safe and proffessional environment. The safety briefing was clear and to the point. His instructive commentry throughout the session saw amazing improvement and results. There was certainly something for everyone - just as you began to think you had it mastered, Dale would throw another challenge at you.Again many thanks for a fantastic event, certainly one of the best corporate events I have had the privilege to attend.

"My son and I have had a great time during every visit to Carodale. Dale's tuition has improved our shooting ability. It's a wonderful environment and the variety of shooting clays makes it a lot of fun."

I really should stop recommending coming here for stag parties seeing as I'm the worst shot of anyone I know... but it's BLOODY GOOD FUN!

"Carodale Sporting Clays is a terrific set up, close to town, with excellent "down home" facilities and a great location. We were blessed with perfect weather on our "birthday shoot" which was organised by the birthday girl herself. She and her female compatriots and a crew of young & not not young men had a fun filled day. With crack & crap shooting, in equal measures - all went home very happy. I would heartily recommend Carodale to anyone keen on an "eye in" birthday shoot or a serious comp amongst the boys (or girls!). Shooting this good, this close is rare"

"It was with some intrepidation we learnt of the venue - clay target shooting was way out of our comfort zone! What a day we had! Dale was a great teacher - he really gave us the confidence to not only try but to succeed at shooting! The walk around the property was amazing - so close to the city, but we were in a world of our own - quiet, peaceful and beautiful scenery - just what we needed. We can highly recommend this destination to anyone!
