Gull Lake Frozen Fore

Gull Lake Frozen Fore

The 12th Annual Gull Lake Frozen Fore!  The World’s Largest Golf & Snowmobile Charity Event! Friday, February 24 thru Sunday, February 26, 2017

This three-day celebration of all things winter, brings together a weekend of activities and fun for adults. From snow golfing to dancing on a frozen lake, this winter weekend is unlike any other.

Friday night begins with the annual Frozen Flop, our version of the polar plunge, which raises money for local charities. Not only does the Frozen Flop occur in the middle of Hole-in-the-Day bay, but also under a heated tent. Unlike any other flop, spectators stay warm, and floppers keep out of the wind making it a truly unique event. Following the flop, is our heated Tent Party! Showcasing an ice bar, food and live music performed by SOLO and  Chase & Ovation (Prince Tribute).

Saturday morning begins with a Pancake Feed on the ice to get you ready for the day. Saturday’s “Happy 10th Birthday” event begins where you can jump on FREE shuttles or drive your snowmobiles or vehicles and play nine holes of winter golf at 9 different locations around Gull Lake. A Digital Scavenger Hunt will also take place during this same time. The Tent Party kicks off at 6 pm with an ice bar, food and live music from Ynott & Groove Hawks to follow at 9 pm.

Finishing the Frozen Fore weekend is Sunday’s Food Fest. This cook-off features a variety of local restaurants showcasing their flavors in a taste competition for the best flavors in the area. Enter the heated tent at Hole-in-the-day Bay and take in the aromas of the Brainerd Lakes Area’s finest restaurants. Vote for your favorite after you’ve sampled them all and get ready for to hear the judges announce the winner.

Proceeds of the weekend event are donated to Confidence Learning Center and Kids Against Hunger-Brainerd Lakes Area.
