Billy Brown

Owner Big Easy Ranch

Even though owner Billy Brown, of Big Easy Ranch, is originally from Louisiana, his heart is as big as Texas.


Years ago, Brown was a vibrant healthy man until his world came crashing down and was diagnosed with prostate cancer. When the word, "cancer" came out of the doctor's mouth, Mr. Brown could not believe what he was hearing. He decided to fight the good fight. Through persistence, education and wonderful doctors, Billy proudly overcame prostate cancer! 

Since his bout with cancer, Billy has created "A Sporting Club Like No Other" nestled away in Columbus, Texas. In 2018, he decided it was time to give back and help those who saved his life.

Thus, the Big Easy Shoot Out was born. With a great board of advisors and a heart for fundraising, they have been able to raise $500,000 in the last two years! 

Combining a golf and sporting clays tournament into one event, providing 5-star meals and lodging along with honorable guest appearances, this is truly an event "Like No Other" and we hope you join us on April 23, 2020 for another spectacular event!






All funds raised will go directly to University of Texas

MD Anderson Cancer Center.


Registration will open at 10:30AM followed by lunch at 11:30AM. At 12:30PM Group A will GOLF and Group B will SHOOT. Then, at 2:30PM we will do a CLUBHOUSE SWAP, and Group A will SHOOT and Group B will GOLF.


We will wrap up activities around 5:00PM to sit down for a steak dinner, learn about the cause and have a live auction!


Golf Scramble. We will have a total of 9 holes, 1 hitting bay, 1 putting contest, and 1 long drive contest, for a total of "12 stations". 

Hal Sutton will be at hole #8. He will be hitting each time a new team comes up to play. If there is a player that hits closer to the hole than Hal, he will sign a flag for you which will state, "Be the Right Club Today".


It's not every day you get to play with a golf legend like Mr. Hal Sutton! 


We will have a 12-station sporting clays course set up with ammunition located at each station. 

There will be total of 60 targets shot per person. We will have a SURPRISE guest that will be at the mulligan station, attempting to shoot any of your missed targets! 

Golf carts and ammunition are included. Outside ATV/Polaris vehicles are not permitted.
