Orvis just recently opened the Orvis Shooting Grounds at Barnsley Gardens in Adairsville, Georgia, just an hour north of Atlanta. The resort’s sporting clays range can help you work the bugs out on crossing shots or introduce you to the fundamentals. In addition to shooting instruction, Orvis offers their two-day fly-fishing schools at the facility.
The Barnsley Gardens Resort was developed around the historic estate and gardens of Godfrey Barnsley. It features accommodations and restaurants, plus full spa facilities. Don’t shoot? There’s an 18-hole golf course, horseback riding, tennis, swimming and trails for mountain biking and hiking.
