Southern Social Weekend

Southern Social Weekend Presented by Beretta

February 21-23, 2020
Time-honored Southern traditions are paired with the timeless elegance of Beretta for a signature weekend-long social celebrating the sporting lifestyle at Georgia’s Barnsley Resort. During this exclusive weekend, participating guests have the opportunity to work with expertly trained bird dogs to flush and point in the field led by world-class guides from High Adventure Company and engage with experts from Beretta. In the evenings, gather to socialize with fellow attendees over Executive Chef Nicolas Lebas’ sporting-inspired dinner menus paired with signature cocktails and libations in Barnsley Resort’s dramatic outdoor-inspired venues.

“The hunting grounds offered by the High Adventure Company and Barnsley Resort are remarkable to say the least. It is secluded paradise, and may just be my new favorite place to visit.”
-Vincent Hancock, Two-Time Olympic Gold Medalist, Skeet Shooting

“Places to shoot and stay in style,” Garden & Gun
