Georgia’s award-winning Barnsley Resort has partnered with the iconic Beretta brand and John Burrell’s High Adventure Company, America’s leading provider of high-end sporting adventures, to develop the Beretta Shooting Grounds and elevate the shooting experience at Barnsley’s 3,000 acres of historic Southern estate.

Effective January 1, 2019, the Beretta Shooting Grounds by High Adventure Company at Barnsley Resort creates a world-class upland bird hunting and clays shooting experience, specializing in both wingshooting and sporting clays. Through the resort’s new partnership with Beretta, one of the finest firearm manufacturers in the world, guests can now sample the precision and craftsmanship of new Beretta shotguns under the guidance of an expert team.

 High Adventure Company's President and Certified Wildlife Biologist John Burrell, alongside BJ Moore, newly appointed shooting grounds land manager, reviewed, planned and oversaw a complete overhaul of the shooting grounds that included doubling the huntable acreage, and worked with a High Adventure Company appointed landscape architect to redesign the clubhouse grounds. Additionally, the clubhouse received a refreshed interior design, new covered pavilion for outdoor living space, and new four-wheel drive UTV vehicles, bringing the grounds up to High Adventure Company and Barnsley Resort’s premium standards. The dog kennels have been modernized, and new pointing, flushing and retrieving dogs have been added for an unparalleled hunt, which include English Pointers and Setters, English Cocker Spaniels and Boykin Spaniel breeds. High Adventure Company also introduced new world-class guides to the staff, building on Barnsley Resort’s commitment to providing memorable, expert-crafted experiences.

For sporting clays, all 28 stations on the two clays courses and five-stand have been updated with new, state-of-the-art Promatic machines, and wireless card counting systems for an upgraded shooting experience.

“Some of the best upland hunting in the world is closer than you think. In fact, for Atlanta, it’s practically in their backyard, just an hour away at Barnsley Resort,” says High Adventure Company President and CEO John Burrell. “As someone who has traveled the globe in search of memorable experiences, I can honestly say that the Beretta Shooting Grounds by High Adventure Company at Barnsley Resort is a largely undiscovered gem.”

In addition to its fine dining options and various outdoor activities, Barnsley Resort recently unveiled its newly designed spa and state-of-the-art Golf School, rounding out the full range of amenities befitting a luxury property.

Having long been entrusted with some of the most unique environments in the world, High Adventure Company is renowned for signature properties, which include Cheyenne Ridge, South Dakota; Lanai, Hawaii; and Tipiluke, Patagonia. “Beretta Shooting Grounds by High Adventure Company at Barnsley Resort will soon take its rightful place in this list of world-class hunting destinations,” said Burrell.
