A Sportsman’s Dream Come True
Owned and operated by three generations of the Matarese family.
M&M Hunting and Sporting Clays is one of the only full-service clay shooting and hunting operations in the United States, offering several hunting options, two sporting clays courses, a world-renowned shooting school, and an on-site hunting lodge. M&M’s 1,400 lush acres and convenient location in rural southern New Jersey make it the perfect facility for your family adventure or corporate outdoor experience.
In the summer of 2016, the Matarese family restructured their hunting program to provide a more traditional “fair-chase” experience that truly sets M&M apart. You can be sure that with more than 60 years in the hunting and shooting business, the Matarese family will provide an experience that is second to none. The family takes pride in providing an overall customer experience rooted in hospitality and first-class facilities.
It is an outdoor paradise that conjures memories of an earlier era, not far removed in time yet almost forgotten … an age fondly recalled by grandfathers and great-uncles in hunting stories filled with wonder, even awe. They tell tales of field and forest and upland game, favorite dogs and favored friends … the narratives of seasoned hunters who lived events that in their retelling have become the stuff of myth, legend and dreams.
At M&M, the legends live on …

A great hunting or shooting trip is about memories—creating them in the field with your friends and family, then reliving them while relaxing around the campfire or at the lodge after a long, action-filled day. Our secluded, private lodge gives your group the setting you imagined only in your dreams. Complete with modern amenities, M&M’s hunting lodge is unlike any other in the country—its story dates to the 1600s.
In about 1675, an original Swedish settler in this area, Anders Seneca, purchased more than 2,000 acres from Chief Obisquahassit, whose name in the Lenni-Lenape language meant “by the muddy waters.” Recognized as the oldest working farm in New Jersey, this original homestead and surrounding 18 acres are still known as Obisquahassit. The lodge’s foundation dates to the 1680s.
Descendants of Anders Seneca (Sinnickson) owned the home for more than 300 years, remodeling and updating it through the centuries. In 1875 Thomas Sinnickson Jr. restyled the home in the late Victorian manner. He and his family lived there until 1899, at which point cousins and friends began to use the farm as a hunting lodge. In 1949, the home was extensively remodeled and brought back to its colonial appearance by Thomas Sinnickson’s granddaughter and her family, who then moved in.
The latest transformation has been conducted by the Matarese family, returning the home to its former status as a hunting lodge like no other—perfect for families, friends or business groups.
Amenities include social gathering areas such as a community TV, dart board, sportsman library, card table, Wi-Fi, BYOB bar, gun cleaning room, outside patio, fire pit and barbecue grill. To preserve the historic feel of a “hunting lodge,” there are no televisions in our standard rooms. Coffee and continental breakfast will be available at the lodge each morning to overnight guest.
The lodge and property is attached to the main M&M property, but has its own drive located approximately a third of a mile from the main club entrance—ensuring your group’s privacy. The address is 20 Sinnickson Lane, Pennsville, New Jersey
Sporting Clays is the fastest-growing shotgun sport in America.
Originally designed to simulate hunting, sporting clays is now often described as “golf with a shotgun.” Clay targets are presented in a variety of unique woods and open field situations on a course that’s challenging and fun. It’s the ideal activity for a corporate outing, fundraiser or other group event.
M&M’s courses are the nation’s finest, and considered by many to be among the best clay-target facilities in the world. The National Sporting Clays Association chose M&M to host the U.S. Open in 2001, 2005, and 2011 – an honor and testament to the caliber of the M&M experience.
M&M offers a novice course and an advanced course to ensure fun for shooters of all experience levels and abilities. Memberships also are available.
