We enjoyed the gift of an umbrella covered box. If you don't have that you better have a huge hat. It's hot in the grandstand and no shade. Bar serves up cold libations and there is a cafe to enjoy a light snack or lunch at your seat. Super fun.

Spent an afternoon here watching my first polo match. The stands have covered sections, so get there early if you want to be able to see and have shade. We got stuck in the nosebleed section for the first three chukkers (periods) and couldn't see one side of the field through the awnings for another section, so we moved down... More

Was here for a lacrosse tourney (a bit different than the usual usage), and I couldn't believe how beautiful this place was. Has an old school charm with the clubhouse, and then has the stables and everything surrounding a gigantic pristine field of grass. Workers were very nice, and the view was unbeatable with the mountains on one side.

Polo games begin at 1:00 and 3:00pm each Sunday May-October. A really fun outing for the family. Entrance fee of $10 for 18 and older included a lovely magazine and a complimentary glass of sparkling wine! They even had sparkling cider for kids and non-drinkers. The announcer was great, making the game easy and fun to follow. Wear a cute... More

The grounds are really kept up well. Easy access to parking lot or street parking. If you get here early you can park on street and save $$ but we preferred parking in the lot to be able to get things out of car as needed. Lots of places to get good food.

This is a fun summer outing on the weekends. A lot of international teams visit for the season and there is a general small town feeling to a great sport. Which makes it accessible to more than one would imagine.
