During our stay at Four Seasons Lodge at Koele we booked an excursion to do the Clay Shooting at Lana’i Pines and we were not disappointed. They pick you up from the hotel and drive you a quick, maybe 5 minute ride out to the course, which is picturesque. It’s such a fun early morning activity to get you off your butts from just sitting at the pool sipping mai-tais. For those of you who don’t know exactly what clay shooting is (like moi), it’s when you shoot at different clay targets that simulate different flight patterns of the different birds or animals.
I learned that it’s one of the most challenging sporting clay sites in the world, the course features a dramatic landscape of deep gulches and ravines, vast expanses of pampas grass and groves of Australian pine and lantana brush. Beginners are introduced to the sport with a 45-minute lesson by a certified instructor, emphasising the essence of the sport and gun safety.
Safety is a top priority here, which of course the girl in me really appreciated. The staff makes you go through every proper precaution before you begin. The instructor we had was absolutely amazing. He really knew how to teach you to hit the targets. Even me, the most inexperienced sharp shooter was able to hit many of the targets. You’ll have a fun time and a unique experience to share with your friends. Plus, you get a cerficate and a pin for free.
It was a great time. Visit Four Seasons Lodge at Koele‘s website for more information. Open daily from 9-230 pm.There are also other activities like archery available.
