Founded in 1889 as a sailing club on the shores of White Bear Lake, White Bear Yacht Club to this day maintains the largest "A" Boat fleet in the upper Midwest. Members can learn to sail or exhibit their skills in the frequently held sailing regattas on the lake.
The original nine hole golf course was constructed by William "Willie" Watson in 1912. In 1915, the world famous golf architect, Donald Ross, did a redesign to the original nine holes and added nine more. The course design is one of Ross's finest having been ranked #49 in the world in 2018 by Golf Club Atlas.
