About the Sarasota Polo Club
Polo is not just a sport with a rich history; it’s a community. The Sarasota Polo Club is one of the largest, most dedicated and enthusiastic polo communities in the world. An estimated 50,000 spectators will be on hand during our 2023 Sarasota Polo Season.
Established in 1991 as the first development in the award-winning, master-planned community of Lakewood Ranch, the Sarasota Polo Club has a remarkable legacy. In 1922, our property was settled as a 28,000-acre timber ranch. Originally, the cowboys who worked on our ranch began playing knock-around polo games in their free time. Riding their quarter horses with stock saddles, using make-shift equipment and knowing very little about polo, the cowboys played by their own rules. Rule #1 was the first rider to fall off their horse bought beer for the team, a tradition that remains in place today. Eventually mallets, saddles and a few polo ponies were donated to the “cowboy games” and in 1991, a real polo club was born.
Today the Sarasota Polo Club spans 170 perfectly manicured acres. Our world-class facilities include: 45 private equestrian estates, 7 Bermuda grass polo fields, a regulation-sized polo arena, a half-mile all weather exercise track, dedicated stick & ball fields, riding trails, on-site stabling for up to 300 horses, on-site veterinary care, a newly-renovated Member’s Clubhouse and a midfield polo pavilion
