    This is a respectful club on the outskirts of Athens, Tn. First of all this is a private location that is not accessible to non-members. All gates are closed and locked upon each entry due to club bylaws. As for info on joining you can go to the actual site and get lots of helpful info there, so I will not get into that. The club has the clubhouse which is for meetings, skeet house, archery area, and various firearm ranges. There is a large pond for fishing and canoeing as well. Not a real big place but it has plenty of amenities. It is very strict on safety issues, respect to the property, other members, and the surrounding homes and churches. We are strong supporters of the NATIONAL RIFLE ASSOCIATION and various local clubs and charities as well. Very good place to join if you can humble yourself and be respectful to the common sense rules of the club.

    This is a private club and when I called on October 21, 2009 to inquire about shooting there, I was told that the only time I would be allowed to shoot was on Thursday afternoon after 4:30 pm until dark. The club president whom I spoke to didn’t sound a bit friendly or welcoming. In fact, it sounded as if he would have rathered I not call and bother him.

    I had called his house two days earlier and left my phone number with his wife and asked that he call me regarding shooting at the club. He didn’t bother to return my call. I had to call him again two days later to talk with him. BTW, I did not bother to go to the club on Thursday at 4:30 pm so I can’t report on the condition or facilities present.

    My advice if you are planning on shooting in the Athens, TN area is to look somewhere else.
