Welcome to the Gateway Gun Club
We are located at the historic Gateway Lodge in beautiful Land O’Lakes, Wisconsin. The Club was established in 1938 upon completion of the lodge’s resort complex.
The club possessed then, and still does today, one of the Midwest’s most extensive trap fields. The club has hosted annual tournaments in both the spring and the fall, and sport shooters from across the country have made the Gateway Lodge a premier destination for decades.
Our Professional Gun Manager is Mr. John Muir. Along with 10 years of experience as a professional shooter for the Winchester Gun Company, he is also a four-time All-American Trapshooting Champion.
Muir came from Pennsylvania to manage the Gateway Gun Club in 1990. He is the first person ever to be the Pennsylvania State Record Holder for Trapshooting with a perfect score of 600/600.
From being a six-time member of the Pennsylvania All-State Shooting Team, Muir became a four-time member of Wisconsin’s All-State Team and twice has been the state’s High Average Leader.
In 1990, Muir renovated the trap fields for Amateur Trapshooting Association (ATA) registered tournaments. To further enhance the attractions of the club, he designed and helped construct a world-class sporting clays course that same year. This lead the Gateway Gun Club to host the 1994 and 1999 Wisconsin State Sporting Clays Championships. The club has hosted many other championships and tournaments, as well.
Sport shooting is available at the Gateway Gun Club from April to November for the public, as well as to guests of the Gateway Lodge. See the schedule shown below for this year’s slate of shooting events.
