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.

Community Dance

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 17th year, we continue our mission to raise money in support of those in need while we “Claw” our way towards our goal of $3,000,000 worth of food purchased!
