"Just wanted to say thanks for a great day today at the Annual Fun shoot. My brother-in-law and nephew paid our first visit to the farm today and it exceeded expectations. Your property is scenic, the course is interesting and challenging and the operation is well run. We are novices and what I appreciated most was the welcome we received from your staff and the other shooters. Everyone was friendly and happy to offer a kind word of advice and encouragement. It was particularly nice that everyone took an interest in my nine year old nephew. He's not new to shooting but this was his first time with a shotgun and he made it through the entire course in no small part due to the support he got from your staff and the other shooters. I look forward to coming back soon."
"Fowler Farms is a great place to shoot clays. You get a pretty good hiking workout too! Mary and Cline Fowler are very hospitable folks, which makes our visits that much more enjoyable. Challenging targets and beautiful mountain scenery. We visit as often as we possibly can!"

"Visited here on our couples retreat to Gatlinburg. Wonderful facilities and super friendly staff. Challenging course that had a wide variety of looks and speeds. The double rabbit station made for some good laughter and fun. Thanks for making our day awesome and especially thanks for the directions home!"

"Challenging course, unmatched scenery, and the nicest people you'd ever want to meet make Fowler Farms the only place I'd take guests for a sporting clays experience. A little more than out of the way, but worth every twisty, curvy moment. Plan on spending the day there for an unforgettable experience."

"OK, I wrote my first review back in 2007 after my nephew, Lane Speich bought me a day pass as a gift. I said I was hooked then, and boy was I right! The combination of the great fellowship with my favorite nephew and other friends, the wonderful hospitality of the Fowlers, and the unforgettable experiences of shooting sporting clays at this terrific mountain setting, I can't think of a better way to spend my spare time! After countless visits to Fowler Farms, I highly recommend this experience to anyone. I assure you, it's time and money well spent! Thanks, Cline, Mary Ruth and Greg for making it unforgettable!"

"What a great experience! Mr. Fowler is such a great host he makes you feel as though you are shooting at a friend's place - except that most friends don't usually come up with courses this challenging on scenery so lovely. Hospitality, contest and value all in one wonderful place."

"I really enjoy this place. My brother lives nearby at Max Patch and each Thanksgiving for the last two years I book us here for some clays and some upland hunting on Quail.
All the menfolk of the family go here for an afternoon on Friday after Thanksgiving, I use my own dogs, and the Women folk spend an afternoon in Hot Springs, NC enjoying the hot tubs and baths."
"I was told about this club about a year ago. It sounded like a good idea at the time....a full-blown addiction occurred and I've been shooting sporting clays on a weekly basis since that time. I've shot at around 8 - 10 clubs in that time and Fowler's remains my favorite club of all. The drive to the club is part of the experience itself. The club is located in a setting that is absolutely beautiful. The course itself winds around a mountain trail that's about a mile long, but easily walked. There are 10 stations, each with two automatic traps. The presentations are challenging, but fair. Some stations are easy enough for beginners, but make no mistake, but there are some "big boy" targets, as well. The Fowler family are great folks and will diligently work to make sure your experience is a great one!"
"Went to one of their semi-annual Fun Shoots and had a great time. A very challenging course in a very beautiful mountain setting. Somewhat remote but the scenic drive up NC 209 is worthwhile all by itself. A neat, clean, and well-organized facility with a nice club house. The course is slightly hilly but not a hard walk. I'll definitely plan on going back."
"I have shot clays at several courses, but I always return to what I consider to be my "home course" Fowler Farms. The course is challenging and beautiful. My dad, sister and myself are thankful to have such a great friendly place to get outside together and break some clays."
Black Mountain, NC
This is one of the coolest places to do sporting clays I have ever been to! My dad, brother and I had so much fun and the people there were really nice!
I highly recommend this as a must-see place to shoot! Enjoy!"

"Very reasonably priced birds for dog training, and challenging sporting clays course. You will definitely enjoy your trip to Fowler Farms."
"Beautiful course, long drive from Asheville, but worth it the moment you arrive. Course is somewhat challenging, with a wide variety of clay placements and throwers, rabbit style throws on hole six are pretty tough. Prices are fair, hospitality is exceptional."
"I received a day at Fowler Farms as a Christmas gift from my favorite nephew, Lane Speich. What a thoughtful gift and a fantastic day! I had enjoyed shooting clays around home with family a few times using a spring trap, but the Fowler Farms experience was fantastic. I definitely will be going back. Thanks Lane! And thank you to the Fowlers as well. "
"I really enjoyed the visit to Fowler Farms. It had been years since I did this kind of shooting. All the Fowlers were so accommodating and all of our group had a great time. I look forward to visiting this facility when I get back in the area. This positive experience has got me wanting to find a facility in our area so that I get can better when I return. "Thanks again."
"This is a really well-run course. It is a very friendly atmosphere. The owners are knowlegable and work hard to give you a great experience"
"This was a very nice club and was well worth the drive. The Fowlers were helpful and accomodating. Be prepared to walk, this course meanders through the base of the mountain and does not easily accomodate a golf cart. I will definitely visit again when I am in the area! "
