Orvis Shooting Grounds

Pursell Farms

Sylacauga, Alabama

To round out the already award-winning outdoor leisure resort and golf course, Pursell Farms partnered with the Orvis brand to create one of the only premier shooting clubs in the heart of the South. Antebellum homes and agricultural buildings alike dot the rolling hill and split-rail fence landscape; a deep wrap-around porch is the defining characteristic of the new Orvis building, creating a transitional place for waiting, watching, and taking in the idyllic view.

The new building is both an Orvis retail shop and a home-base for the Orvis Shooting Grounds. Inside, heart pine beams and columns boast highly detailed timber joinery. Hunting, sporting clays, or fly-fishing instruction takes place in an indoor classroom before groups head to the grounds for activities.
