How To Join The Club
We get this question all the time. Here is the scoop.
Fern Creek Sportsman’s Club is a private club with a membership of 210. This membership number is set in our bylaws.
We are much more than just a place to fish and shoot guns. We sponsor numerous events each year to promote hunting, fishing, recruitment, and conservation. Just a few of these are partnerships
We also hosts trap shooting, 3D archery events and are a common meeting place for the League of Kentucky Sportsman’s 3rd District. Part of being a member is an expectation of support of these ideals.
Now, how to become one of those 210 members? The first step is to know a current member who is willing to sponsor you. In order to have your application for membership accepted YOU MUST HAVE A SPONSOR. Once you have a willing sponsor that person will contact you when membership applications are being accepted. We do not put out membership applications or announce when we are accepting applications out to the public.

Fern Creek Sportsman’s Club accepts applications on average about once every 5 years. This usually results in around a 100 applicants. We then randomly draw each applicant out of a hat and this determines where they are placed on our waiting list. At the beginning of the year we go down the waiting list until the number of spots that are available has been filled. If we can not contact someone or they decide not to accept the membership they are removed from the waiting list. The number of memberships available varies from year to year but is usually less than 10 new members in a year.
The best way is know a member of Fern Creek Sportsman’s Club. This raises the question how do I get to know a member of Fern Creek Sportsman’s Club after all there are only 210 of you. Well we have a number of events each year that are open to the public ranging from trap shooting to 3D archery. Not to mention numerous event that we partner with KY Fish and Wildlife and various conservation clubs in the area.
How not to find a sponsor…don’t ask on the Facebook page for someone to sponsor you. If we don’t know who you are we are not going to sponsor you. We take Fern Creek Sportsman’s Club seriously and you may be a great upstanding individual but a few comments on Facebook are not the way for us to find that out.
