The Savannah Lakes Village Rod & Gun Club is honored to be the largest sanctioned club in Savannah Lakes. We pride ourselves for offering the activities that our members request. These activities include: Sport target shooting, Skeet shooting, Sporting clays, Fishing charters (striper/bass/crappie), Fishing seminars, Dinner social programs and MANY more. Check our Upcoming Events section for more info.
The Rod & Gun Club is committed to 1) Connecting SLV members with common interests in fishing and shooting sports, 2) Providing opportunities for organized outings, guided trips, and sporting events, and 3) Building relationships.
The Club is in the process of setting up various fishing charters as well as seminars. Fishing Charters are set up monthly, when possible. We do allow non-members if they are invited by a member on that charter. The charters will be first come first serve for members and guests.
Pistol Range hours are 9:00-1:00 (summer). Skeet shooting is every Tuesday, weather permitting, at Hickory Knob Skeet Range at 9:00am. Old and new Club members are free to join on Tuesday mornings at Hickory Knob Resort State Park to get an idea of what the shoot is like and speak with the Rangers and shooters. Members are responsible for their own equipment and ammunition. A round of skeet (25 ct) costs Club members $6.00.
On August 20, the Rod & Gun Club will host a Shoot, Don't Shoot event. The Shoot don’t Shoot is a discipline shoot where a series of bullseyes on a targets are read out, ie red circle, green square, #5 etc. Not everyone has the same target bullseyes so some shooters can fire while other have to hold fire until their target bullseye is called. There are 5 shot strings for a total of 25 shots per exercise. Very popular shoot for the Club.
There will not be an August Striper Charter. Charters will resume in September.
