Terrain and accessibility: The club is located on the side of a fairly steep hill so courses that are laid out do include shots which necessitate some walking up and down steep sections of ground. Paths are cleared where possible, but the area is environmentally sensitive, so paths can be uneven in many places. It is mainly woodland but with some open field shots usually included.
Shot types: The varied terrain allows for a wide variety of shots; steep uphill, downhill, cross slopes and including the infamous ‘Quarry Shot’ which challenges even the best of archers. The courses are not permanent, meaning that each event is different to the last and so archers can expect to be challenged every time they come to Pentref.
