Reducing Our Carbon Footprint

At Silver Willow, we have always been passionate about protecting and preserving the environment. We have operated completely “off the grid” since the course was established in 1988.  Our unique facilities use only passive solar power and wind power, providing electricity for the buildings and throughout the grounds. Each of the 80 clay target throwers throughout the courses are operated using batteries charged by small solar panels. Our facilities also feature a unique composting septic system, which effectively reduces our water consumption and waste. All of the clay targets thrown on the courses are biodegradable, ensuring that our grounds remain waste- and pollution-free. Read more about our facilities below.

Gun Brothers Cafe

This space is dedicated to a group of five enthusiastic members, who shot together weekly for years and called themselves “The Gun Brothers!” 
Located in the main clubhouse, you can stop by for a snack, light lunch or hot and cold beverages. Don’t leave without trying our famous chocolate chip banana bread.

Day & Co Shotgun Sports

Located in the main club house, Day & Co. offers premium shotguns and shooting accessories including: cleaning products, choke tubes, eye & ear protection, vests, jackets, clothing, shotgun cases, shell bags and hunting apparel. We are dealers for Browning, Beretta, Winchester and Salvinelli shotguns.
