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 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.

The fields at Palm City Polo rival the best fields in South Florida. Collaborating with Warren Prescott of JW Turf, Palm City Polo offers a rare variety of grass that has proven to be as picturesque as it is durable.

  • I’ve been playing at Palm City since they got started. The fields are absolutely great! Joey puts together a very good bunch of players, it’s always fun to play there and the people we play with are all friendly. It’s competitive and yet at the same time it’s a very relaxed club atmosphere. The field that Joey has put together is probably the best in the world, and that is not just from myself and I’ve played in two or three countries.
    — Timmy Sharma
  • Finding Palm City Polo Club changed my life. I was always curious and intrigued to play polo but never knew where to start. Meeting the folks at PCPC changed all that. Joey and his crew provided me with a safe, supportive and fun environment where newbies can learn, experienced players can be challenged and everyone rallies together to cheer each other on no matter the level! It is truly a very special place with terrific people.

  • Joey and the crew are absolutely fantastic! Palm City Polo is a welcoming, friendly club that is great for beginners taking lessons to seasoned players going full out on the field or arena. They are flexible and relaxed, but strongly passionate for the sport and just love to play. Palm City Polo has been great for me, flying down from New Jersey a few times over the winter to play and hone my skills with top level trainers and friends to play with for support, encouragement, and motivation. Palm City Polo sets the standard for clubs and I would highly recommend!
    — Peter Secor
  • I absolutely love playing polo at Palm City Polo. It's competitive 10-goal polo where you play team polo with some of the legends of the game. The pros are constantly working with you on position and skills and give you the opportunities to make the key plays. The pros truly make you into a better player. There's a friendly environment among the players and there's always an asado that follows the fun on the field. I play polo all across the country at different clubs, but Palm City Polo ranks the top spot on my list of clubs to just have fun playing polo.
    — Kenny Mayer
  • I learned to ride again at Palm City Polo after a long hiatus. Great teachers got me riding and then learning to play polo. The atmosphere here is one of continuous encouragement and no judgment whether you are a novice or a skilled player. People of all kinds and backgrounds mingle in this friendly and fun place which is geared to including all comers in the exciting game of polo. PCPC is a place where I have learned to play this amazing sport and at the same time to enjoy the camaraderie of others who share my love of this game.

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.
