Beginning: Downers Grove Sportsmen's Club was chartered in 1950.
Its original location was in Downers Grove Township on approximately 60 acres.
There were two skeet and three trap fields. The need for expansion resulted in
our relocation to our present facility. Now: Downers Grove Sportsmen's Club resides in Morris on approximately 485
acres. DGSC has 8 Fields: Five combination (Trap & Skeet) and 3 Trap only. There is a 5
Stand Field, and a 14 Station Sporting Clay Course.

and a wide variety of Club Shoots and leagues.
