Originally built in 1961 the Fish & Game clubhouse is humble, comfortable
and functional. We are able to host many different types of club
functions and activities. Over the years our old block building
has seen its share of changes and improvements. The most recent
renovation which was dedicated in the spring of 1996 included the
addition of a roomy new general office, a garage and trapshooting
storage area, a caretaker's office and supply room as well as handicap
accessible restroom facilities.
The building's main room measuring 28' X 70' will generally accommodate
upwards of 180 people comfortably when in meeting configuration.
Limited overflow seating and additional display or activity space
is available for events which are being held during fair weather
conditions, beneath our large fully covered open air patio area
located on the east side of the building. A well equipped and fully
modern kitchen located adjacent to the main room has been the focal
point of many club funded improvements in recent years.
Our clubhouse is frequently used by local, state, and regional
organizations to conduct business meetings, hold educational seminars
or specialized training, and much, much more. The structure also
seems to be a favorite with the Ohio Division of Wildlife because
of its many amenities and the general geographical location. The
GCF&G clubhouse is also utilized annually by our friends at the
Greene Soil & Water District and many other local conservation and
sportsmen related groups.
Other activities held in the clubhouse which may be rented by both
member and non-member individuals when its not in use, include monthly
meetings, hunter education courses, wildlife open houses, parties,
fund raising events and of course trapshooting. In addition to being
a center for social interaction among our many members and guests,
the clubhouse also serves as the primary classroom facility for
the state required CCW training as provided by Personal Protection
A huge stone mantle surrounds a cozy brass fireplace enclosure
at the north end of the building, flanked on both sides by respectable
whitetail and ring-necked pheasant mounts. Audio-visual equipment
is even available to provide a little extra flexibility for our
friends that use the facility for educational and training purposes.
On any given Sunday and during other special events you might even
find our ample 35" television filling the room with the sights and
sounds of a ball game, hunting and fishing show, or auto race.
Turning a slightly blistered hot dog over a roaring campfire is always fun, but when it comes to a relaxing meal before a meeting or event, nothing beats the grub prepared by the friendly ladies in our clean, freshly renovated kitchen. A comprehensive menu ranging from steak to ice cream is available most of the time upon request, with other belly rubbing dishes made available on a seasonal basis.
A neon sigh hanging in the breezeway window lets you know when the kitchen is open as you drive up. The is always a pot of hot coffee and a god conversation brewing in the clubhouse.
Our kitchen personnel monitor the weather by TV and NOAA radio and will keep our members and their gusts informed of any surprises Mother Nature may have in-store for us. We don't serve caviar here, but we've been know to serve up an occasional plate of homemade chicken and noodles or beans and cornbread! Affordable meals and friendly service are what you will find at GCF&G.
First class kitchen facilities are available for a reasonable fee when renting the clubhouse. Due to the nature of the commercial kitchen operation at the clubhouse and health departments constraints, rentals will only have access to the non-commercial equipment. This includes a refrigerator, four burner stove / oven, microwave, warming table, two large coffee makers and countertop.

to availability and club sanctioned and / or sponsored events will
