The Sugar Shooting Tournament, an annual event hosted by J. Pepe Fanjul, recently took place at Casa de Campo, a stunning 245-acre Shooting Club directed by Jake Pike. Set in a tropical paradise with turquoise waters and lush jungle foliage, the club boasts over 200 trap, skeet, and sporting clays stations. Among its many impressive features is one of the world’s largest shooting towers, which stands at 110 feet.

Guests gathered on Friday 28th and Saturday 29th of April, to participate in Sporting Clays, where they shot 100 targets each day, with a total high score out of 200. Participants also had the opportunity to participate in the European Style Driven Bird Shoot at Rancho Peligro, a 10,000-acre reserve owned by the Central Romana Corporation.

The Casa de Campo Sugar Shooting Tournament began in 1988 when J. Pepe Fanjul hosted the inaugural event to celebrate the opening of the newly improved Casa de Campo Shooting Center. Originally located near the Polo Fields, the center had reopened with an impressive Sporting Clays circuit, two pigeon rings, and a skeet and trap facility. Fifteen years later, with the appointment of a new Director of Shooting, Shaun Snell, a new shooting facility was opened at Rancho Peligro, allowing the tournament to expand from a four-day event to a six-day event.

Today, the annual event attracts an extraordinary group of keen shooters worldwide who gather for a week of exceptional shooting, fine dining, and cocktails at Casa de Campo’s numerous restaurants. The event is a highly anticipated occasion that is sure to impress, as evidenced by the stunning collection of images captured by Juan Carlos Polanco at the Casa de Campo Shooting Center.
