NEWTOWN, Conn --(Ammoland.com)- If you put one shooter in an empty room, he will be convinced that he’s the best marksman there. And he’d be correct. The argument may start when you add a second shooter.

Spirit Ridge Rifle Golf in northern Utah has developed Rifle Golf – a new concept in shooting range activity that has marksmen coming back and back— and back for more. After shooting a round of Rifle Golf, there will be no doubt who was the better marksman, at least on that day.

Rifle Golf uses conventional golf as a model to create a standardized course, scoring system and set of rules, so that shooters of any skill level can compete, either against themselves or other shooters. The game has been a roaring success.

“We were looking to build a shooting range on steroids,” said Jeff Peterson, Spirit Ridge’s director of marketing.

He and his colleagues came up with the Rifle Golf concept in 2005, and range traffic has doubled every year since then.

“It kept evolving and growing, and now we attract many outstanding shooters,” he said.

Spirit Ridge hosts leagues, tournaments and other competitions, as well as many individuals and foursomes shooters. The level of competition ranges from single shooters who compete only against their own last round, to very intense contests, some recorded for television, with prizes worth thousands of dollars.
