We booked a family event for my dad’s 75th birthday. I highly recommend this club, we all loved it from 7 to 75 years of age. The staff are amazing too, they really helped make this special for us all. If you’re thinking of trying this you won’t be disappointed. Just go for it and book. We can’t wait to go back again 😀

I have just visited Martin Gorse Wood for my first one-to-one lesson, meeting both Chris, and my instructor Tom, for the first time.
Right from the off I felt amongst friends. A warm and friendly attitude throughout the day that made me feel welcome (and coffee!)
The facilities are great, set in lovely woodlands.
I wasn’t there to ‘smash targets’ for an hour, I want to learn the safety, art, and proper techniques to improve before I think about buying my own gun, and this is where I was really impressed. The guys knowledge and attention to detail were first class, really taking the time to explain (to a novice) the theories, before putting each bit into practice. Over (another) coffee, they both took the time out of their day to have a general chat and answer any of my questions on the sport. Absolutely brilliant!
Will I return? Yes – regularly!
Will I be booking more lessons here? Yes!

Top marks for all your work for the re-opening with all the covid safety precautions. Loved the improved footpaths, felt totally comfortable and will be back for more. Well done! Mike, 01/06/2020


A thoroughly enjoyable day out! Ian, 14/06/2020


Had the most amazing afternoon at Martin Gorse. The staff were brilliant, so attentive and engaging. Chris and Jen were excellent as was our instructor Dave. We are definitely going to come back!  Big Shoot customer 01/03/2020


Hi Chris, thanks for our group shooting lesson prior to our shoot. The day went well and we shot with confidence. Thank you very much for putting us through our paces.  I would like to do another group lesson in January. James, November 2019


Hi Chris, thanks for today. Feedback from all the guys was great and they all thoroughly enjoyed it. I was shooting with Tom and he was a great instructor. The guys shooting with Ian said he was fantastic as well. Steve, 12/12/2019.


Chris, I just wanted to email to say thank you very much for helping to organise the shoot yesterday. Everyone said they had a really lovely time and how lovely the instructors were. I’m sure you will be seeing us again soon. Beth 19th Jan 2014


Chris, …just wanted to say thank you for looking after us on our first shoot experience yesterday. We all had a fantastic day and really appreciated you taking the time to spend the morning with us showing us the ropes. We will most definitely be back. If you’ll have us! Claire Denyer, Saks Hair and Beauty, Kings Hill


Chris & Kalvin. Thanks again for such a good time today. Thomas was looking forward to his birthday party so much, and they had a great time. I’m sure they will all want to come back. Thanks also to Kalvin, who did the boys a proper safety talk and got them all hitting around 50% of the targets. Kids birthday party 22/06/13 T. Baldwin


Hi Chris, thought you might like some feedback from Wednesday evening corporate shoot. 110% positive 0% negative! That’s the response from all the participants. High praise indeed for all the instructors, the ladies were particularly taken with Gordon, they reckon he could have got them to hit the farthest visible star!!. The whole evening went off so well. I think the domino effect has started and I am sure many who took part will return! Perry’s Motor Sales 12/06/13


Hi Chris, on behalf of my son Crispin and myself thanks very much for the warm welcome yesterday and the personal attention you gave me and the excellent coaching from Kalvin. I learnt more in that morning than I have since starting shooting in February this year. Very friendly club with professional management. I would like to arrange a one to one coaching lesson with Kalvin. Geoff 02/06/13


Hi Chris, Thanks for the stag party shoot on Saturday. The boys had a great time! John Thanet 26/01/13


Hi Chris, Many thanks for our ladies hen party shoot. The girls had a good laugh with your instructors who were professional but put everyone at ease on the day, many of us having had no shooting experience before. The use of the small 410 guns put many at ease before we tried the bigger guns. Trust you are well. Ladies hen party Sarah 02/02/13


Hi Chris, Well done for organising our annual Xmas shoot and coping with the big group of people that came, it seems to grow year to year! See you soon. Gary 28/12/12
