Our course

 Our course consists of 36 3D targets laid out in pairs on our course (see map above) 26 of them are in the woods and the remainder in the wild flower meadows though which you pass to enter the woods. You enter the course through the gate where you leave your tag on the tag board, please close the gate behind you to protect the horse in the field. Pass through the field to the fence aheads of you and pass through another gate, again please close the gate behind you and secure with one of the ropes. The entrance to the woods and target pair 1 is ahead of you through the gap in the fence, then follow the course as shown above, maps for the course can be found with the sign in book in the enclosure on the side of the barn.


We welcome visitors to use the course however you must be a full member of the NFAS to shoot the course.

On parking in the car park you will find a sign in book on the side of the barn together with details of how to enter the course. Please use the book to give us your name and NFAS membership number and please leave the sign in time and the time you leave the course in the book for your own safety. We use a tag system, found with the visitors book to identify those on the course and provide visitor tags for you to use on the tag board by the gate into the course. There is a honesty box by the sign in book for you to leave the fee (currently £5.00) for using the course or you can pay at Rixdale Archery Shop on the road outside the course.

Please be aware that we are open seven days a week and there may well be other archers shooting at the same time.

In line with NFAS rules you must have your NFAS membership card with you at all times whilst on our course and may be asked to show the card by members of the club.
