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.  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 Archery and Junior Rifle sports and provides the equipment and training at no cost to the students.  We are affiliated with the National Rifle Association, Michigan United Conservation Clubs, Civilian Marksmanship Program, Michigan Bow Hunters Association, USA Archery and The United States Practical Shooting Association.  
 
Our mission at the Houghton Lake Sportsmen's Club is to provide programs and facilities for men, women and youths who are interested in both indoor and outdoor shooting sports.  Our programs, leagues and facilities are tailored to provide recreational opportunities to everyone.  The club is particularly interested in promoting shooting programs and instructional classes that teach responsible and safe bow and firearms handling and skills.

The Houghton Lake Sportsmen's Club introduces the formation of a new group within the club for members who are interested in advancing and participating in various hunting & fishing activities, outings and events. Members are invited to come and join in with other members in forming this group activity for themselves, for the club and for the community. Discussions and plans are being made for club members to organize hunting and fishing outings, dinners, raffles and other venues of interest to members. The HLSC has long been active in promoting many shooting sports activities for its members and are looking forward to expanding the opportunities for its members into the various hunting and fishing sports that are available throughout the community. 

Members, please come and join us in forming and promoting these activities for the club. Meetings will be held on the 3rd Monday of each month at the clubhouse at 2929 Tower Hill Road in Houghton Lake. The next meeting date for the Hunting & Fishing Group will be on Monday, October 17, 2016 at 7:00 p.m.
