Lounge

We have great lounge with ample seating for relaxing or dining. For the sports fas we have four tournament steel tip dartboards, a regulation pool table, cable TVs, kids games and a fully licensed bar.

Every Wednesday we play darts, two seasons a year we have team leagues and in the off season we have blind draw doubles scramble. See the Darts section for more details.

Every night the lounge is open members can play Bar Bingo and Fridays we have regular meals, which are all freshly cooked in-house.

The Bar

A beautiful hand built full bar, where you can relax with your favorite drink, play bar bingo or just chill and have a chat.

The bar is open from 5 pm to 9 pm Wednesday to Saturday. We welcome all Elks whether you are a local member or traveling.
Members may also sign in a guest!

We now have Bar Bingo for Members! Sit in your favorite seat at the bar, or table if you prefer, and play bar bingo.

Our Five Acre Property

We are very fortunate to have our very own five-acre property, located at Elks Lane, off Fairchild Road, north Crestview.

This property provides us the opportunity to hold our well supported Turkey Shoot, outdoor family events, football, baseball, soccer and many more.

Two local organizations who use our field for sporting events are the Crestview Area Youth Association (CAYA) and UF IFAS Extension Okaloosa County 4-H (4-H)
