The season for Winter weather (Freezing Temperatures, Snow and Ice) has arrived. Please remember that Green Valley does not plow the gravel range roads or the ranges when it snows. Members are responsible for using common sense when visiting the facilities during inclement weather conditions. The freeze / thaw cycles can create very slippery conditions of ice.
Lower Range Maintenance Complete
The construction of the new wall between the Lower Mover range #1 and the Falling Plate range #2 is complete. Both ranges are now open. Thank you for your patience while we make improvements.

As of February 1st, you must possess a 2024 range pass to utilize the Green Valley Facilities. All renewals received in the PO Box as of January 31st have been mailed out. Do not call the range and ask for the new gate code.
About Green Valley Club
The Green Valley Club's informal origins date back to the 1930's with target shooting on "Green Valley" Drive in Columbia, MO. The organization was formally incorporated in 1955 and the original Wyatt Lane shooting range was purchased that same year.
The Columbia, MO area played a major role in the creation of practical shooting as a discipline. It was here that IPSC was started. The first IPSC champion, Ray Chapman, went on to establish the Chapman Academy in Hallsville. The Chapman Academy was purchased by the club in 1994.
The club annually hosts the Bianchi Cup International Pistol Tournament, an action pistol event attended by top national and international shooters. Other sanctioned events include Missouri State IDPA Match, State bullseye match, Glock regional match, and Cameron Cup Action Pistol match.
The club offers various other training opportunities: NRA classes, MO CCW, and visiting instructors. We have several active disciplines which hold matches several times per year. Even though there's something going on every week, many of the 300+ members simply use the facilities for their personal practice.
