The Houghton Lake Sportsmen’s Club was founded in 1952 and is a non-profit organization supported by membership dues, private donations and annual fundraisers. We are a family friendly organization featuring a safe environment and facilities 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 Outdoor Ranges are located at 6774 Nestle Road between Tower Hill and Townline Roads.
Our facilities are situated on a 20 acre site for our indoor and outdoor ranges to accommodate all our shooting sports. We have 2 Indoor Pistol/Rifle Ranges and an 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 in our NRA Junior Rifle Marksmanship Program and provides the equipment and instruction at no cost to the students. During the summer season the club hosts monthly USPSA and Steel Challenge Matches that are open to the public and also hosts the national Project Appleseed Program. Our facilities are opened year-round and features weekly leagues and monthly matches for our members for a variety of shooting sports. Members participate in weekly leagues for Black Powder Muzzleloader, Bullseye Pistol, .22 Rifle Silhouettes, Action Pistol, Plate Targets and Steel Targets; there is a monthly Ladies Practice League in the summer as well as monthly USPSA & NRA 2700 Matches. Annual public events for the community features the club’s Annual Gun Show every April, a Rummage Sale in May and Sight-In Days every November.
The club is affiliated with the Nation Rifle Association (NRA), the Michigan United Conservation Clubs (MUCC), the Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP), the Michigan Bow Hunters Association (MBHA), USA Archery and the United States Practical Shooting Association (USPSA). The club is also a member of the Houghton Lake Chamber of Commerce.
The mission of the club and its members is to provide programs, activities and the facilities to members of the community who are interested in indoor and outdoor shooting sports. The HLSC is committed to educating and instilling to all the responsibility for safe firearms and bow ownership and handling. As members of the conservation community we commit to taking care of our natural resources and act as stewards in taking care of our wildlife, our waters and our lands.
