The Markham Park Target Range comprises four unique venues, including skeet and trap, a pistol/rifle range, a sporting clays course, and an archery range.
Skeet and Trap Fields
The skeet and trap section of the range consists of five lighted combination skeet and trap fields, along with a five-stand (currently closed) that is used as an abbreviated sporting clays practice area.
Rules for skeet and trap fields
The pistol/rifle range consists of 66 lighted shooting stations with a four-hour maximum shooting time. Open-toed shoes (sandals, flip-flops, etc.) and sleeveless shirts are not permitted on the pistol/rifle range.
The sporting clays course consists of 13 stations spread throughout the woods adjacent to the target range. The course accepts reservations and is open on weekends. If you'd like to become a volunteer at the sporting clays course, call the target range at 954-357-5143 for more information, or pick up a volunteer application at the target range or park office.
Rules for pistol/rifle range
Hearing and eye protection are mandatory at all ranges. Any junior shooter, ages 10-17, must shoot under the direct supervision of a paying adult.
The target range is closed year round on Mondays. Please check our current hours of operation before your visit.
Various clubs and organizations use portions of the range throughout the week to promote their particular brand of shooting, such as the Markham Skeet, Trap & Sporting Clays Club; the Gold Coast Gunslingers; the Florida Speed Shooters; the Sawgrass Rifle Club; the South Florida Pistol Club; the Tropical Sport Shooting Association; and the Everglades Cap and Ball Historical Shooting Society.
