What makes Laser Clay (Balgownie Resort) so popular?
‘Things to do’ in the Yarra Valley just got more exciting with Laser Clay target shooting!
It’s Friend vs Friend, Mate vs Mate, Father Vs Son! Regardless of age or skill, you will train your trigger finger and compete on a level playing field with this fun, a safe and unconventional twist on clay pigeon shooting at the Balgownie Resort Vineyard & Spa.
As you set your sights to the sky a disk is released from the conventional launcher. You then test your speed, concentration, and predictive skills by firing a modified shotguns high-tech infrared laser beam at the target. A module scoreboard generates the shotgun “bang” whenever the trigger is pulled. If your aim is on-target, the sound of a crackling disk is reproduced over the scoreboard which signals your success.
In each round of Laser-Clay up to 5 people can shoot at the same target launched from a number of different positions at various speeds and angles so its great for individuals, a group of mates or families to all have fun at the same time.
Victory relies on skill, a little bit of luck and heaps of fun!
Laser-clay is the only shooting sport that is absolutely environmentally friendly and safe. Laser-clay guns fire a harmless infra-red beam like in a TV remote control at reusable disks and even the sound is totally controllable.
Skill Shot: Players are awarded two points when they hit the clay target on their first shot and one point for the second.
Rapid Fire: This game is based on who can hit the clay first. Five points are awarded to the first person to hit the clay target and then points descend down to one point for the last person who hits the clay target.
Speed Shoot: A point is only awarded to the person who is the quickest to hit the clay target first everyone else who hits the target receives zero points.
Laser Sport: Each time you hit the clay target you receive one point.
Each session consists of shooting at up to 30 clays (this may take less than the allocated session time).

Q: HOW MANY PEOPLE WILL BE ON THE LASER CLAY SESSION?
Typically a Laser Clay session can have up to 15 people on a session.
Q: HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
You will get to shoot at up to 30 clay targets (unless you chose to pay for more) which will typically take about 20 minutes to do. When we have larger groups of more than 5 on the session, it can take up to 40-60 minutes in total for everyone to rotate having their turn until they each reach 30 targets shot at.
Q: DO YOU PROVIDE PRIVATE SESSIONS?
We most certainly can arrange a private session for your group. Pricing may vary depending on the amount of people due to the fact that the session is exclusive for your group only.
Q: WHAT TIME DO I NEED TO GET THERE FOR MY LASER CLAY SESSION?
If you could arrive 10 minutes early for your scheduled session.
Q: WHAT HAPPENS IF I DAMAGE THE EQUIPMENT?
You are responsible for the gun whilst it is in your possession. Therefore if you damage it, you will be required to provide a $750 security deposit by way of credit card. This money will be retained until such time as we can get a quote for the damages. Once we know the full costs, you will be required to pay these within 7 days.
Q: HOW DIFFICULT IS IT TO DO, WILL I BE ABLE TO PICK IT UP QUICKLY?
We will provide you with instruction and training how to use the Laser Clay guns. Most people are able to hit a target within their first 6-10 shots some within their first 1 or 2 shots.
Q: CAN MORE THAN 1 PERSON SHOOT AT ONCE?
The Laser Clay system is designed so that up to 5 people at a time can shoot at the clay as it flys through the air, making it a fun, safe and interactive experience.
Q: DO I GET TO FIRE REAL BULLETS?
The answer is No! The Laser Clay system is a high-tech device that has all the same skill as Clay Pigeon shooting but is totally safe and environmentally friendly as the guns fire a harmless infrared signal just like your home TV remote. If you are on target and the signal hits the clay as it flies through the air it will register on the scoreboard a direct hit and you will also hear the sound of a breaking clay over the speakers.
