If only they had opposable thumbs, horses could play polo by themselves and swiftly place bets in track-and-field events. Engage in haute horseplay with today’s Groupon to the San Diego Polo Club in Rancho Santa Fe. Choose between the following two options:

  • For $25, you get two VIP tickets (a $50 value).
  • For $12, you get one carload’s tailgating and match entry (a $25 value). Celebrating its 25th year in Rancho Santa Fe, the San Diego Polo Club invites longtime fans and the uninitiated alike to witness the ball-smashing intensity and equine finesse of the 3,000-year-old sport. See such world-renowned players as Mariano Fassetta and Graham Bray tangle mallets on the club’s 60 acres of pristine grassland, starting with the June 12 season opener and returning most Sundays through September. VIP tickets get you a spot on an elevated, tent-covered perch, an ideal location to watch the horseback match while the attentive wait staff slings drinks and food and neighs the play-by-play. Females can delve into their wardrobe to pick a sprightly summer dress or Texas-shaped sun-hat for the sophisticated fashions of Opening Day. Arrive early, as the pre-match hours abound with tailgating, demonstrations, live music, and face painting for children. Reservations are encouraged for both VIP and tailgating attendance; check the online schedule for the master list of upcoming events and competitions.

San Diego Polo Club

The story of how the game of polo traveled from the hills of northern Persia to the immaculate field at the San Diego Polo Club has taken centuries to unfold. But the fast-paced play of those first games remains in tact during the club’s Sunday matches. World-class and amateur players alike have come from distant countries such as Argentina, New Zealand, and Horseyland to perform for an audience dressed in their Sunday best, sipping cocktails from two full bars and noshing on fare from the bistro, or surveying the scene field-side while tailgating.

Ever the sport of the aristocracy, the San Diego Polo Club provides tips on what to wear to its events. Extra sartorial attention is paid to each summer’s celebrated Opening Day. Those unfamiliar with the rules of polo or the eligibility of centaurs can find a helpful introduction to the sport by clicking here.

Customer Reviews

Great afternoon to spend in the warm sun while watching Polo. The horses are beautiful and ridden by experienced Polo players. Food and drinks are available so you can stay hydrated and energized. At the last event, the SD Polo Club brought in old vintage planes, flown by their owners/pilots that were interesting to look at and during half time, there is an activity of where everyone gets up and goes out to the field and stomps down the grass that was pulled up from Polo players and horses. It was a very enjoyable afternoon.
