Founded in the 1930s, the Golden District Rod and Gun Club has always encouraged the propagation of fish and wildlife through conservation. We support the local community with donations and by training locals about proper use of firearms. The Golden District Rod and Gun Club is home to one of the longest ranges in British Columbia. Our facilities are conveniently located a short 15 minute drive West of Golden. We pride ourselves on being active in the community through educational events and scientific research in the regional area.
