Awesome private club. Drinks are reasonably priced for the area, private 12 lane bowling alley, great views of the Ashley River, and an excellent place to rent a dance hall.

Racism is not cool. If you don't support the KKK then don't support these "good" people.

I guess Jim Crowe is a member of this club...either change your racist “traditions” or shut your doors for good!

Russ Johnson

Low price drinks, local crowd, everyone has a good time.

Brian Shirley

Performed here with Tracy Smith and I've also been here when it was used as a staging area for the cast of "Mr. Mercedes "

Racist club with majority of racist members.

Rick Huger

Andy Schellhaas

Unlike race, gender, and sexual orientation, membership to this club is optional. 100+ years of white-only membership, and all of the members are now claiming that this is the first they're hearing of racist policies, and that few are speaking for the majority. This is a culture cultivated over decades, not simply a mistake made last month. Sorry to hear that this club and it's members treated Dr Brown so poorly.

Roger Williamson

I joined this club several years ago because of the friends I met who belong there, it’s long history, and the new friends I met as a guest before joining. I joined the club for the way it is. I did not join so I could change it to be something different. The staff there are terrific, the entertainment and club activities are great, and I would not change it at all. Love the club!

Private Club, Great Place, cheap drinks

joslyn jelinek

This club doesnt admit African Americans for membership. Full stop. They haven't and they won't. Not today and not in the future. Please don't plan your parties here or join friends if you support this policy. Women cant have membership without a father of husband sponsorship. Ha!

Great bowling. Lots of events. The membership is prestigious for a good reason. The dance floor is packed and bands are always very well received on nights scheduled way in a advance. The officers of the club care a lot about this club.

Apparently POC are not welcomed. This is a WHITE ONLY establishment. Although that may be what attracts your members.

A great place and good people! Awesome bowling league and did I happen to mention the good people!

It’s sad that in 2018 you don’t want to bring people together by simplest thing of bonding with friends and family by shooting and trying with firearms

Great club, bowling fellowship

Jen Sommer

Full disclosure- I’ve never set foot in this club nor had known of its existence until I heard about the club’s decision to blackball Dr.Melvin Brown, MD, a graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy, retired Navy doctor, and a highly respected member of the Charleston community. The fact that he is African-American apparently was enough to convince six members of the club to veto approval of his membership. Of the 14 up for consideration, only he was not deemed worthy of joining the all white club. Kudos to the three members who endorsed Dr.Brown’s application. Would be interesting to know the names of those who vetoed it and hear in their own words why they were against his membership.

Attended a private party here recently. I was very impressed with the Charleston Rifle Club. Evidently most negative reviews listed here are purely political from people (sheep)who have never been here!!! The grounds and building were impressive and very clean. The staff very friendly and professional. Food and drinks were good and very reasonable. They even have a bowling alley!!!!! This is the type of club we all wish we had in our town. If I didn't live 800 miles away, and only visit a few times a year, I would look into getting sponsored to be considered for membership. Thank you Judy, Steve and the Charleston Rifle Club for a memorable evening. William Leo Isaksen-guest of Mat Moore, My son in law.

Charleston Rifle Club deserves 0 stars, not 1 star!!!!! Denying membership based on race is not cool at all.

Can't give it Zero Stars, sadly. My wife is a med school classmate of Melvin Brown and a Mt Pleasant native. After reading the article and hearing about Dr. Brown's Naval service, commitment to community and stellar reputation, all I can say is "Wow". All praise to Dr. Brown for applying and his friends who nominated him and nothing but pity and deep seated shame for the anonymous members who blackballed him. I hope the Club can change but until it does, we will never attend an event there or support it in any way. We will definitely be going to Mel's (Harold's) Cabin though. Those are the kind of people we want to associate with. People who judge others based on their character, their selflessness and service to others and their commitment to a just and sane world. Dr. Brown clearly stands out and above in those categories. If Harold's decides to institute a "membership"policy, I'll be the first to apply.

It's old and it needs some remodeling done on it.

I support and welcome them.

It's stunning that even today, organisation can be run by members who regard people, not on the content of their character, but the color of their skin (apologize to Martin Luther King, Jr.). What otherwise looks a fine establishment, should be boycotted universally. If those members are unable to see the errors of their ways through basic societal norms and expectations, then I urge a signifcant drop in patronage to assist them in seeing the light.

It has a nice atmosphere, staff is very friendly and willing to assist you at a moments notice. It is clean and well kept. I would truly recommend Charleston Rifle Club to everyone.

A whites-only private club. More virulent racism from the South, how shocking.


Never support a club that supports racism. I would have given 0 stars if I could. In 2018 we are still dealing with horrible racist people. We should find out who were the people that decided to not vote Dr. Melvin Brown in. Internet justice will prevail. With his background and current state, he should have been accepted. Such a shame.
