Gilchrist Club



Telephone : (888) 535-4868
Fax : (866) 123-0000
Address : 3270 S.E. 4th Way Trenton, FL 32693

The property that would become Gilchrist was purchased by Bob Menke and David Meehan in 1989 as a hunting and recreation retreat for their families and business associates. The first onsite lodge was constructed in 1998, and within a year, plans were drafted to create a members-only hunting club. Gilchrist’s inaugural member’s quail hunt was held in November, 1999, with a handful of dogs, a few jeeps, and only three guides. Not long after, the club began offering deer, hog, alligator and turkey hunts.

By 2002, the club needed additional facilities, and the Suwannee Lake Restaurant and two lodges were constructed. Two years later, a 5-stand shooting pavilion and the rifle and pistol ranges were built, and in 2005 the restaurant was expanded and a small pro shop was added. Also that year, the Gator’s Den and Seminole Reservation lodges were constructed and additional jeeps were purchased.

While the club has been buying adjoining tracts of land since its inception, a key purchase was made in 2007, when the club acquired a 12-acre parcel that included a three-bedroom home on the Santa Fe River. By 2008, The Gilchrist Club had expanded its holdings to 27,000 acres, and in 2010 the 14-stand sporting clays course was constructed, and two years later (2012), additional quail fields were opened up; there are now 19 managed quail fields on club property.
