The club was founded as the Essex County Sportsmen Association in 1930. On June 29, 1964, the Amherstburg Branch received their own Letters Patent and became Amherstburg Malden and Anderdon Sportsmen Association. Its intent was for The Preservation and Propagation of Fish and Game. The Association also a venue for fishermen and hunters to get together to share experiences and preserve and promote their beloved sports met at various establishments.
The original clubhouse was built in 1986. With a vibrant volunteer-minded continually expanding membership has undergone numerous additions and renovations, including an indoor Archery / Air Rifle Range, Outdoor Archery, and 3D course to accommodate the member’s needs. The current facilities are fully licensed and will accommodate dinners or receptions up to 250 people. It is located at 468 Lowes Side Road in Amherstburg.
