DIRECTIONS TO THE CLUB: From Fort Valley take HiWay 96 approximately 3 miles West. Turn left on the last road (Gun Club Road) before reaching the HiWay 49 Bypass. The road passes through a pecan orchard, a small housing community and turns to gravel. Cross the railroad tracks and enter the range. If you're on the HiWay 49 bypass, turn East onto HiWay 96 to Fort Valley and take the first road to the right that runs through the pecan orchard. Please do not speed through the housing area!

 

MATCHES: Each month, the Fort Valley Gun Club holds regular matches on the 1st, 3rd & 4th Saturdays. The matches are detailed below with start times and other information. ALL safety rules apply. The club now has a Porta-Potty and the fees listed below are subject to rising a dollar or two to help offset the cost. Our matches are designed to be FUN but competition can be stiff! In all cases, the Range Officer's decision is final.
