Hilton Head Island residents and visitors can now escape the heat by heading indoors to On the Mark Archery’s air-conditioned range at Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort. This new addition complements resort favorites such as golf, tennis and pickleball, while offering its own unique challenges and satisfaction throughout the journey to sporting success.
Founder Mark Pirrello, a Level 4 USA Archery instructor certified by Olympic Head Coach Kisik Lee, will oversee daily operations to help build momentum and establish a foothold on the island. The New England-based organization is renowned for its professional mobile archery classes, events and corporate team-building sessions for individuals and groups to enjoy. Youths and adults alike will undoubtedly find this activity refreshing and engaging when given the opportunity to experience one of the world’s oldest sports using traditional wooden recurve bows that require instinctive aiming and discipline to truly master the “Art of Archery.”
On the Mark Archery’s facility in Palmetto Dunes is located at 5 Trent Jones Lane next to the resort’s Robert Trent Jones clubhouse. They are expecting to open shooting lanes for rental to the public as early as July 3rd.
Pirrello describes archery as a mental sport that involves a focus needed to achieve consistency with the body, mind and spirit all acting in unison.
“We are excited to have the chance to showcase an Olympic sport like archery for residents and visitors of Hilton Head Island to experience something unique and totally different,’ Pirrello said. “This is an activity that anyone can succeed in with a little patience and focus and although it can take years to master, the fundamentals can be learned within a few dozen shots.”
