Holton Gun & Bow Club

The HGBC was started in 1962 by a group of people from the Holton & Twin Lake areas. They had originally started (In 1960) shooting behind the American Legion in Holton. The group decided they wanted to purchase some property and start a shooting club. The Holton School District had 80 acres on Crystal Lake Rd which had caught on fire & was burnt over. The group purchased the property to start the Holton Gun & Bow Club. They had their first meeting in August of 1962 electing their club’s officers.

The members of the Holton Gun Club wanted a family friendly, safe facility where members could participate in the different shooting disciplines. Over the years - The Holton Gun Club has evolved to become a 4-season shooting facility with a:

  • 1500 square ft. clubhouse with office, meeting room, and kitchen
  • 5-lane 75/100/200yd range weather protected benches
  • 40-lane 50/100/200yd range outdoor covered benches
  • 4-lane 300yd range shared with the 40-lane range
  • Pistol Range with a 50yd berm
  • Archery Range with ground stations. Elevated station taken out by wind storm.

Holton Gun & Bow Club is a private club, yet we welcome new applicants.   We also hold shoots that are open to the public.
