Location

 

Located in South Florida, just minutes from Wellington, and an easy drive from Miami and Ft. Lauderdale, Palm City Polo Club’s 35-acre facility features two regulation grass polo fields and a regulation outdoor arena. There are 60 stalls, 14 paddocks, a hitting cage, a 100-foot round pen and an exercise track. Players and guests are welcome to enjoy the new polo lounge and patio area adjacent to the main polo field.

The facility boasts EquiSafe fencing, which is constructed of high-density polyethylene (HDPE). Casey selected the product because it is the best quality and safest fence on the market for horses, as it has rounded edges and won’t shatter, splinter or rot.

Collaborating with Warren Prescott of JW Turf, Casey installed a new variety of grass on Palm City’s fields that has never been used on any other polo field in the world. Players who have had the opportunity to play on this field have raved about the footing and resilience. 

 

 

Joey Casey, owner of Palm City Polo Club, is one of the most experienced American players in the sport.

Casey is a third-generation polo player. A former 7-goaler, he brings nearly 30 years of professional polo experience to Palm City Polo. In addition, his family has been breeding polo ponies for generations. Joey’s breeding and training program produces many top competition horses in the sport.

Joey successfully competed in high-goal tournaments around the world, including numerous U.S. Open Polo Championships. His career highlights include: six-time winner of the Sunshine League Championship (26-goal); four-time winner of the International Gold Cup Championship (26-goal); three-time winner of the C.V. Whitney Cup (26-goal), and the USPA Gold Cup (26-goal) and the Westchester Cup (26-goal). He twice won the Sunshine League Championship (20-goal) and won the 3 de Febrero Handicap (0-40) Open in Argentina.

Other prestigious tournaments he won include: the Pacific Coast Open (20-goal); the Canadian Open (20-goal), and the International Cup (18-goal). He is an 11-time winner of the Hartman League Championship (12-14 goal). Casey also won numerous Kay Colee Tournament Championships (10-goal).

Mike Harris is the chief instructor at Palm City Polo Club’s polo school. Harris’ reputation as one of the best polo instructors in the sport is well founded.  

As a professional player, he competed around the world, and even played with Prince Charles.  Harris played professionally until shifting his focus to umpiring tournaments and coaching players of all levels.

"Mike is amazing -- he is one of the best instructors and clinicians in the country. With his knowledge and experienced lesson horses, Palm City Polo Club’s polo school successfully teaches students to play safely, competitively and to love the sport,” said Joey Casey.

Polo Basics

Do I need to know how to ride before I learn to play polo?

You don't need any riding experience to get started in polo. We offer equitation lessons for the beginning level rider so you can learn how to ride horses and play polo at the same time.

Do I need to own a horse?

Horses and tack are included in each lesson.

What should I wear to my polo lesson?

Comfortable jeans and shirt, riding boots and a helmet.

What should I expect in my first polo lesson?

Your first lesson will be an evaluation of your riding level and you will spend time in the hitting cage learning how to properly swing the mallet. After the first lesson, we will work with you to develop a customized training program to fit your skill level and needs.
