For the more adventurous this month of love, why not try your hand at being a real-life Cupid and doing some archery. Archery can be enjoyed by virtually anyone regardless of their physical ability, and facilities are available for both outdoor and indoor shooting.

Archery has many valuable lessons which transfers into other recreational activities, it:
– instils confidence,
– increases attention span,
– fosters a willingness of participants to try other sports activities.

The Hermanus Field Archery Club (HFAC) was founded in September 2008 by Jaco Coetzee, when he and fellow archers were looking for a place to practice their archery skills.

HFAC hosts a SANIFAA structured competition every 4th Sunday of each month. The competitions are open to all archers, whether club members or not.

The range consists of a practice range with targets set at distances ranging between 10 to 80 yards and a circular course with a total of 28 stations. The course is laid out in yards and accommodate shots as far as 80 yards: varying degrees of slope and incline make this a challenging archery course.

Competitions are alternated between Field-, 2D-, 3D- and Hunter rounds.
To accommodate hunters on a field round, HFAC introduced the Biltong round. The Biltong round consist of 14 station with distances varying between 7 and 40 yards.

HFAC forms part of the Greater Hermanus Shooting Club, that accommodates pistol shooting, rifle shooting and clay pigeon shooting. This beautiful course is situated amongst fynbos and old Pine trees on the R43, between the Kleinmond and Bot River turn offs, just 15 minutes’ drive from Hermanus.
