The Muskegon Bowmen Archery Club began in 1937 when archers got together to pursue the sport of archery. This was also the first year of special archery deer season in Michigan. The club met and shot at many locations in Muskegon County before building their clubhouse on Central Road in the mid-1970s.
Many thousands of archers have shot with the Muskegon Bowmen Archery Club over the past 80+ years. The chartered purpose of the club is to encourage and support the ancient sport of archery—all types, traditional and compound, are enjoyed on a year-round basis at our indoor and outdoor ranges.
