Whistle Bear Golf Club

Whistle Bear Golf Club Cambridge, ON, Canada The land that Whistle Bear sits on was originally owned by one of Cambridge's founding fathers, William Dickson. This land is rich in history, yet it wasn't until recently that the site was transformed into a golf course. The links-style course, as you see it today, has been built on 178 acres of a 232 acre property owned by Emilio Cabral of Regional Sewer and Watermain Ltd.The back nine holes were opened in late summer 2000, and the front nine opened in July 2001. In fact, each of the 18 holes at Whistle Bear tells a part of the lands historic story. Researching Cambridge's archive records revealed the site had 18 previous owners. It was Emilio who decided to name all 18 holes after the previous landowners.The name Whistle Bear comes from Thomas Vair, who was a 19th century blacksmith that set up shop in the area. Legend has it that Vair would whistle while walking along the country road. Over time, the road that runs along the second and third holes became known as Whistle Bare Road. Bare was then changed to Bear to describe the aggressive nature of the course.
