Bear’ly Open XVI
February 3-4, 2023, White Bear Lake, MN
Welcome to the White Bear Lake BEAR'ly Open!
Golf on Ice Event
Join us for the White Bear Lake BEAR’ly Open – Golf on Ice winter fun event. A realistic 18 hole golf course built on frozen White Bear Lake, complete with real pine trees, challenging holes and actual greens with flags. Golfers play with tennis balls and use golf clubs, hockey sticks, tennis rackets, or anything else that can propel a tennis ball forward with a degree of accuracy. Players are encouraged to dress in costume and an award is presented for the best group costume.
Kick off the fun at the Community Dance on Friday night. Listen to local favorites, “Wild Cat Combo”, playing the best of classic rock and roll while enjoying free hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar featuring our signature “Bearlytini” cocktail.
Giving Back to the Community
The BEAR’ly Open is coordinated in partnership with The Rotary Club of White Bear Lake and White Bear Events to raise money for the White Bear Area Food Shelf. During these difficult economic times, the the issue of food insecurity has increased to record levels. In our 16th year, we continue our mission to raise money in support of those in need while we “Claw” our way towards our goal of $2,000,000 worth of food purchased!
Can’t join us in person? You can still help by participating in our silent auction where you will find many gifts and experiences donated by local businesses and community members. You’re sure to find something you want. Or simply click the donate button if you just want to support this worthwhile cause. All your generous donations bring us closer to our goal.
So come show your hardy Minnesota spirit and join your friends, neighbors and a few local celebrity mascots for a weekend of golf, music, food and fun – all while supporting your local White Bear Area Food Shelf.
