The Houghton Lake Sportsmen's Club was founded in 1952 and is a not for profit organization, supported wholly by member's dues, private donations and annual fundraisers.  We are a family friendly organization featuring an enjoyable and safe environment for shooting and archery activities.  The clubhouse is located at 2929 Tower Hill Road (at the corner of Nestel Road) approximately one mile south of M-55 in Houghton Lake.  Our facilities are located on a 20 acre site with both indoor and outdoor ranges for all our shooting sports.  We have 2 Indoor Pistol/Rifle Ranges and an Indoor Archery Range within the clubhouse building.  Located outdoors are a 3-D Archery Range, a Black Powder Range, a 100 yard Rifle Range, a NRA Rated Pistol Range and 6 Action Pistol Bays.  The club sponsors youth programs for middle school and high school students for Junior Rifle Marksmanship Shooting training and provides the equipment and instruction at no cost to the students.  We are affiliated with the National Rifle Association (NRA), Michigan United Conservation Clubs (MUCC), Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP), Michigan Bow Hunters Association (MBHA), USA Archery and The United States Practical Shooting Association (USPSA).  
 
Our mission at the Houghton Lake Sportsmen's Club is to provide programs, facilities and activities for men, women and youths who are interested in both indoor and outdoor shooting sports along with hunting and fishing events tailored to provide recreational opportunities to everyone.  The HLSC is committed to providing instructional classes that teach responsible and safe bow and firearms handling and skills.  Each year the club schedules Archery Instruction Classes, Basic Pistol Classes and CPL (Concealed Pistol License) Classes.  Annual events that are open to the public include our Gun Show, Rummage Sale, Open House, USPSA Matches, Project Appleseed and Sight-In Days.
