Nestled between the Santa Ynez Mountains and the Pacific Ocean the Santa Barbara Polo and Racquet Club is truly one of the bright jewels of the American Riviera. The club offers 87 manicured acres, two clubhouses, stabling, swimming pool, and eight tennis courts. On Friday and Sunday’s the Club welcomes the public for Happy Hour and Sunday Polo. Whether you’re a local or visiting Santa Barbara this is an extraordinary experience.
In 1911, the Santa Barbara Polo Club was declared an official polo club by the United States Polo Association. During the 1920s such stars as Chaplin, Fairbanks and Will Rogers all competed here. Rogers broke his arm during a game and was quoted in the newspaper as saying,”They call this sport a gentlemans game for the same reason they call fat guys slim”. In 1974, the Santa Barbara Development Company completed construction on a new polo complex at the Santa Barbara Club in which 144 condominiums were built. The Santa Barbara Polo and Racquet Club hosts many big tournaments which bring in celebrity spectators from all around the world. In 2011 Prince William played in the Foundation Polo challenge.
