***Please take note of the following information***

Sandhills Archery Club is a membership-only archery range, so you will need to purchase a membership to participate. For a limited time, you are allowed to attend as a guest, but you must be admitted by an active member of the club.

Please be aware that Sandhills will be doubling their membership fee starting this May.

If you are attending as a guest, please bring your own arm guard and finger gloves--we do have loaner bows and arrows.

Also, A Note for Parents: You must be in attendance for your children to shoot at the range during our practices. You are responsible for your children and we ask that you do not leave them unattended in the lounge area during archery practice. As safety for all of our members and their families is our first concern, be sure that your children understand and follow the safety directions on the range.
