Sporting club membership gives members access to quality amenities, but more importantly, a group that enjoys the same activities as you and your family. Pine Creek Sporting Club, a champion wing and clay shooting club in Okeechobee County, is a family legacy created by Stephen Myers, Sr. and his family. It’s one family inviting 66 other families to share, the same lifestyle and passion for the outdoors. These families have become stewards of the land for generations to come. All Pine Creek amenities are available to members, their families and guests, including guided quail-, turkey- and hog-hunting, high-tower pheasant releases and a 11,000-sq.-ft. lodge and fitness center. There’s also an array of shooting sports, like 5-stand, trap, FITASC and championship sporting clays. A variety of fun and adventurous activities for children includes swimming, horseback riding, kayaking, fishing, bike riding, multi-purpose field games, archery, table tennis, horseshoes, bocce, buggy rides, rope swinging, zip-lining as well as shooting instructions and demonstrations.
