HOLLAND & HOLLAND Green Feathers Course 2015
The Green Feathers course is a fantastic introduction to shotgun shooting for ladies and since it’s launch in 1995, has introduced over 1,300 ladies with little or no shooting experience to the pleasures of shotgun shooting.
The course takes place in unspoilt countryside at the brand’s Shooting Grounds just a 40-minute drive from central London. The Grounds can also be accessed by London Underground Metropolitan Line to Northwood Station followed by a 5 minute taxi ride.
Each participant may book three one-hour lessons with one of the renowned Holland & Holland instructors or share three two-hour lessons with a friend or fellow participant. Lessons are by appointment Monday to Friday and some Saturdays from February until late April. They are tailored to the individual needs of each participant, whether they have never held a shotgun before or have ‘had a go’ but never really been taught to shoot.
The course began in response to comments from many ladies who, though sometimes present at shoots, felt somewhat unprepared to take their own place in the line. Yet shooting is one of those sports where women can easily be the equal to, if not better than, their male peers.
At the conclusion of the course, all participants will gather at the Grounds in April for the Final Day of the Green Feathers. The morning is spent putting these new shooting skills to the test over a variety of clay-shooting stands. A delicious luncheon is followed by a simulated pheasant drive, plus there is a chance to try full-bore rifle shooting on our 100-yard range.
The 4 top-scoring ladies will each receive a place in the line at a Holland & Holland Game Shoot during the 2015 season and every participant completing the course will receive an enamelled ‘Green Feather’ brooch.
The Green Feathers course is designed to be a fun and relaxed experience and has resulted in many shooting friendships. To join the next course, or for more information and pricing, email email@example.com
