The Scouting Report
For four Sundays in September, Farish Field at The Houston Polo Club quakes under crashing hooves as polo matches unfold across the historic grounds. The season opens on September 8 with the Land Rover Houston Central Cup, and continues with the G.H. Mumm Cup on September 15, the Fall Classic on September 22, and the Malbec Cup on September 29. Matches typically last anywhere from 90 minutes to two hours, during which time fans can step away from the action to refuel with food from Prince’s Hamburgers and beverages from Berryhill. They can also visit the new Houston Polo Club Tack Shoppe, featuring La Martina products and a wide-range of pick up polo souvenirs in hopes of getting an autograph from their favorite horse.
Houston Polo Club
Located on 26 sprawling acres just a short distance from downtown, The Houston Polo Club has been treating humans and hooves to gripping polo matches played on lush terrain since 1928. During the season, weekly scheduled matches take place on Sundays. Spectators get to watch these equine bouts from the Red Oak Lawn, where they can also brush up on their polo lingo as they witness every exciting goal, bump, and hook.
