Range Facilities

DPRC has 10 shooting ranges to facilitate every shooting discipline, with a few specialized for specific disciplines such as benchrest, bullseye pistol, and one dedicated to .22LR shooting sports. In addition to the shooting ranges we also have a large clubhouse.


Mowing will take place on as needed basis with ranges first and then common areas. You may be asked to take a break from shooting to expedite the process. Thanks for your cooperation!
