Archery Target Range at Rodes Farm
The Wintergreen Sporting Club’s Jerry Rendich Archery Range at Rodes Farm has six lanes with hanging bull's eye targets with moveable stands to hold bows & arrows. Two moveable targets are also available. The range is at the very end of Rt 613, past the red barn and behind the tennis court, near the WPOA swimming pool (which has bathrooms available in the summer). Nearby picnic tables, in both the sun and shade, overlook the archery range and a nearby pond. The range is on WPOA property.
Shooting distances can be set from 10 to 50 yards. The field can accommodate recurve and compound bows. Crossbows are discouraged due to their power to penetrate the range's targets and backstops.
Unlike the field archery trail, this range is open to club members every day. There is no need to make a reservation. WSC archery group members usually meet every Tuesday (9 am in the mornings during hot summer days, otherwise around 3 pm) for practice and coaching sessions; email email@example.com for more information. See the archery calendar for details and sign up for club emails (free to everyone) for up-to-date information.
WSC has a member who is a certified Level 1 instructor, and several club members with archery experience are happy to help beginners learn about this sport and assist other intermediates with improving their technique.
This archery range is owned by the Wintergreen Property Owners Association and is open to all Wintergreen property owners. It is maintained by the Wintergreen Sporting Club as a service to the community.
