More than Polo

With all the players, grooms, spectators and some 600 horses on site during season, the Sarasota Polo Club truly buzzes from polo activity alone - but there is always room for more! Before the first horse trailers arrive in November and after the last polo ponies exit the field in April, the polo grounds are swarming with activity. The Sarasota Polo Club is the premier destination for events ranging from soccer tournaments to music festivals and everything in between. With 130 acres of manicured lawns and a picturesque setting unparalleled in the Sarasota and Manatee areas, the possibilities are endless. As a bonus, there is plenty of parking on the property in close proximity to all of the club’s facilities.

Looking for a unique way to entertain your clients? Or perhaps your annual company picnic needs an enhancement? The Sarasota Polo Club will put on a private polo match for your group. Make your next event a ringer!

Clubhouse Our unique, ranch-style clubhouse-a popular site for weddings, holiday gatherings, business seminars and more-has undergone major remodeling from top to bottom! Gaze at the breathtaking view of the playing fields from our wraparound porch; relax and enjoy a spectacular sunset from our brick patio and let our striking stone fireplace capture your attention.

MGA Insurance Group Pavilion Our field-side pavilion is a favorite venue for both polo and non-polo events; features attractive landscaping and patio areas. Centered on the member side of our championship field, the pavilion provides a stunning view of the fields.

On Sundays during polo season, our corporate sponsors can be seen

entertaining guests while enjoying the up-close action from the pavilion.
