The Phoenix Target Rifle Club was formed by the amalgamation of two clubs that shot on the Dean Range at Port Adelaide. The two clubs were the Adelaide Rifle Club and the Port Adelaide Rifle Club.
These clubs, which were both 100 years old, joined together in 2002 shortly before the Dean Range was closed and all of the metropolitan rifle clubs moved to the new range at Lower Light, approx. 40km north of Adelaide (20 minutes from Caltex, Bolivar and 8kms along Light Beach Road).
Long Range Target Rifle Shooting is a friendly but exacting sport which is open to shooters of both genders over the age of 14. Some physical handicaps may not necessarily prevent participation.
The club welcomes all newcomers to the sport. Equipment is available for their use, and club members are happy to coach new shooters.
