From May through October, horses barrel down Santa Barbara Polo & Racquet Club's 300-yard-by-160-yard field in gripping polo matches. Tournaments held throughout the week culminate in Sunday finals matches, held at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. after gates open at noon. Six hundred fans pack the grandstands, and the full grounds, including tailgating and lounge areas, house 3,000 spectators. Attendees can brush up on the rules of polo and scope the teams beforehand to prepare for the action.

The polo field and sprawling grounds at Santa Barbara Polo & Racquet Club host amiable members and first-time guests alike, drawing such notable spectators as Prince William and Kate Middleton. The polo field, as large as nine football fields, allows visitors to kick back along the sidelines. The club’s Centennial Café, open only on Fridays and Sundays and headed by chef Dave Mertens, quells afternoon appetites with sandwiches, salads, and burgers.

Santa Barbara Polo & Racquet Club

Cleaved between the Pacific Ocean and the foothills of Santa Ynez Mountain, Santa Barbara Polo & Racquet Club is among the oldest polo facilities in the U.S. The Club was established in 1911 and quickly became a focal point of competition and social interaction. In fact, by the 1920s, spending Sunday at the club had already become a celebrated social event. Visitors would don the latest fashions and picnic at the fields, some even hiring helpers to assist with the noonday meal and deliver jokes during intermission.

Although some conventions have changed, the club retains its reputation as an elegant destination to enjoy the “Sport of Kings.” It features a trio of world-renowned polo fields, plus eight tennis courts, a fitness center, and a pool for recreational use. The club still draws some of society’s most noble figures, too—Prince William and Catherine visited during 2011, a trip that saw Prince William compete in a charitable match.
