Owen County has often been recognized for its beautiful landscape, its number of skilled craftsmen, and a strong sense of community. However, this summer Owen County will be recognized on a worldwide level when the U.S. Open Sporting Clay Championship takes place at Elk Creek Hunt Club.
The U.S. Open is the second largest sporting clay event in the world. More than 1,000 shooters from all over the world are expected to compete in the event, which takes place June 23-28.
Elk Creek Hunt Club Manager Gary Kathman said planning the event has been a two-year process.
