The league was formed in 1954, possibly 1953, as one of many golf leagues by the Link Activities Club. The other leagues formed at this time were; the Blackcat, the Panther Cat, the Tiger Cat, and the Alley Cat. There is also the Wildcat league which was formed at the same time but did not want to get LAC benefits. These leagues played at State Park, Ely Park, and Geneganstlet.  The leagues remaining are the Bearcat, Blackcat, and Wildcat leagues.

The Bearcat Golf League members over the years. The latest first.  

League secretaries over the years have been: Don Mastronardi, Gary Winchell, Jim Spencer, Gary Winchell & Randy Howell.
