Whether you’re a dedicated fan of the venerable sport of polo or simply someone who enjoys the high sporting spectacle, you enjoy close and easy proximity to one of the foremost polo venues in the country when you stay with us at Delamar Greenwich Harbor.
We’re speaking, of course, of the Greenwich Polo Club, comfortably within the upper echelon of the world’s high-goal polo grounds. High-goal polo—the “cream of the crop” of the sport, as the United States Polo Association puts it—typically features the highest team handicaps and the swiftest gameplay, and it’s exhilarating to take in firsthand.
The Greenwich Polo Club
The Greenwich Polo Club sits in beautiful back-country Greenwich, a short drive from our luxury hotel on the shores of Greenwich Harbor, so you’ve got remarkably convenient access to this prestigious venue, which draws more than 2,000 spectators from all over the region for its Sunday matches.
Situated in the Conyers Farm area near the New York line, the club dates from 1981 and serves as home base for one of the most decorated polo teams of the last quarter-century: the legendary White Birch, which has won a whopping 31 tournaments at the 26-goal level or higher since its establishment.
The Social Experience
The horsemanship and gameplay may be top-of-the-line, but it’s not the only appeal of a Sunday outing to the Greenwich Polo Club. You can bring in a picnic (including alcoholic beverages) to enjoy on the lawn, and meanwhile the people-watching is absolutely first-rate: Many spectators come dressed to the nines, fancy hats and all, which adds much to the overall ambiance.
Our Greenwich Polo Package
The polo ponies surging down the field, the riders brandishing their mallets, the ball flying to the soundtrack of pounding hooves—the thrills of the game tend to captivate even those spectators with little prior knowledge of the sport. And here at Greenwich Harbor, we make it especially easy to enjoy the on-field action with our Greenwich Polo Package.
On match weekends, the package affords you overnight Deluxe Accommodations at Greenwich Harbor, an in-room bottle of bubbly, continental breakfast for two, harbor cruises Saturday and Sunday morning, and a parking pass to take in a given Sunday match. You also receive 15% off cabanas and boxes if you book the package over the phone.
Upcoming events at the Greenwich Polo Club include the Silver Cup on July 9 and 16; and the East Coast Open, which runs August 27, September 3, and September 10.
We’ll also add that it’s a gorgeous drive to the Polo Club, nestled in the Greenwich “backcountry,” from our hotel along Long Island Sound.
