North Florida Archers
is an annual membership
club. Single/daily passes
are not available.
See our "Membership"
page for full info...

In order to preserve the 
life of our targets on the 
walk around ranges, no 
person will shoot more 
than 2 arrows per target.
 Target repair/replacement 
is very time consuming 
and costly.
This policy will extend the 
life of our 3D targets so we
can continue to provide
great shooting experience
for all our members.

Club membership cards to
be displayed/worn while
you are at the club. 
Your membership card
identifies you as a current
and valid club member.



Thank you to everyone who came out to our Annual EXTREME Shoot and a BIG thank you to all the volunteers who made the shoot possible!

Also, congratulations to Tim Moseley. He not only won the Compound Fixed Pin class but was the only archer to make the score shot on our running steel deer...

Proposed NFA By-Laws Revision
A proposal was made at the Nov 2, 2021 meeting to make the following changes to article IV of our By-Laws changes for election of officers.
Eliminate the position of Chairman of the Board and reduce the Board of Directors from 10 to 9 members.
This change will be discussed and voted on at the December 7, 2021 meeting before the scheduled elections for all other club officer positions. 
Be there for your input and vote.

We are excited to be hosting Brooks Adaptive Sports and Recreation for monthly archery sessions, serving veterans living with disability in our community. This collaboration is made possible by a grant from the Veterans Administration. These sessions will take place on the 3rd Wednesday of the month from 4:00PM – 6:00PM, starting this Oct 20, 2021.  The 20 yard target bales will be closed during this time, so please plan accordingly.

Now that we are getting into hunting season, it's a good time to remind members and guests per our club rules

"Fall Protection (safety harness) is required when using the elevated ladder stands located in the broadhead area. A safety harness is NOT Required on the walk stand known as the Cadillac Stand"

Signs are posted, please observe... 

While North Florida Archers does provide a 
broadhead area for practice, this area is for 
traditional style broadheads only. Due to the 
extreme damage done to our targets, 
broadheads are not permitted on 
 North Florida Archers property.

About North Florida Archers

North Florida Archers (NFA) is a non-profit organization whose sole purpose is to provide an opportunity for the citizens of North Florida to participate in the sport of archery.  Directed by members in good standing, the club provides facilities for both traditional and compound archers.  Sorry no crossbows allowed!

The facility is located on approximately 45 beautifully wooded acres within the Tillie K. Fowler Regional Park.  The facility features a covered target range with targets at varying distances up to 70 yards with room for targets to 100 yards.  It also has wooded shooting trails throughout the property, which feature multiple 3D targets.

NFA facilities are open from 7:00 a.m. until dark seven days a week.  Access to the facility is controlled so that members can come and go at their leisure. Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts and other youth groups are welcome to visit and try their hand at the sport.  Coaching is offered in the finer points of archery while emphasizing the aspects of safety.

NFA has a very low membership fee for individuals and families.  Membership dues are used for facility maintenance.

Club meetings are held at 6 p.m., the first Wednesday of the month (unless holidays or special events conflict), to discuss club issues and to welcome new members. All meetings are held at the club pavilion.

The club is entirely managed by its members.  Members are encouraged to volunteer for special workdays and to help with the preparations for the monthly shoots.

For further information please browse this website, stop by the club's facilities or
call the club phone at 904-445-0001


The US Navy, in support of the Morale Welfare and Recreation for government personnel, established North Florida Archers in 1988.  In 1990 the facility was turned over to civilians for management and control.  Approximately 2001 the facility became part of the city of Jacksonville park system.

The property includes historical elements, including a section of the “Old Brick Road” which is a part of the history of the Jacksonville area.


North Florida Archers (NFA) is located within the Tillie K. Fowler Park, 7000 Roosevelt Ave, Jacksonville, Florida.  Access to the club is across the road from the Yorktown Ave. gate of the Naval Air Station-Jacksonville (NAS-JAX).

See the LOCATION page for area maps, directions and further details.
