The White Bear Yacht Club narrative begins over one hundred years ago, first with a yacht club in 1889, followed by tennis in the 1890s and a golf facility in 1912. The lakeside location of the White Bear Yacht Club on the shores of picturesque White Bear Lake make this one of the premier clubs in the Minneapolis/St.Paul metro area.
It is said, that during the summer of 1921, F. Scott Fitzgerald and his wife, Zelda, rented a room at the White Bear Yacht Club. A year later, he published Winter Dreams, a short story that transpired at a golf club in Black Bear Lake, Minnesota…sound familiar?
White Bear Yacht Club offers members and their guests a highly-ranked, impeccably maintained Donald Ross golf course, fine and causal dining in two state-of-the art clubhouses, clay tennis courts and an award-winning children’s program. To enhance the experiences of members and their guests, a new deck-dining facility, a new five lane lap pool and a zero-entry splash pool with an adjoining cabana area overlooking a sparkling lakefront all opened in June 2013.
