Enjoy an Active Father's Day Celebration at Mission Inn Resort

Trap and Skeet or Golf Await

(HOWEY-IN-THE-HILLS, Fla.) – Dad deserves a multi-day Father’s Day celebration. Why not?  Start the festivities a day early and meet dad on the range at Mission Inn Resort & Club—on the El Cazador Trap and Skeet Range.

On Saturday, June 15 from 9:30 to 11:30 am guests can participate in trap and skeet on a range that offers guests a unique opportunity to participate in clay sports with an experienced instructor.  In trap, a single machine throws as the competitor moves through five different stations.  In skeet, two machines throw targets while participants advance around stations arranged in a semi-circle pattern on the range.

This pre-Father’s Day trap and skeet outing will be followed by lunch at Nickers for only $50 plus tax per person. Children 12 to 18 are permitted to shoot and dine for a cost of $40 per person.  The package includes one round of 25 clay shots, lunch at Nickers in the golf clubhouse, and a domestic beer or soft drink following shooting.

In need of more activity after lunch?  Make a tee time at one of the Mission Inn Resort’s two highly-regarded golf courses.  El Campeón (The Champion), one of the oldest courses in the South and a member of the Florida Historic Golf Trail is a design classic as well as a legendary championship test. Las Colinas (The Hills) is a longer, modern concept, with rolling fairways that create its own set of challenges.

Reservations are required for either the shooting and lunch package, or for afternoon golf.  To book the trap and skeet outing call (866) 276-2854. For tee times call (800) 874-9053 toll-free or (352) 324-3101 direct, or visit
