“Experience a live polo match!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2014

I'd never been to a live polo match and found it to be really interesting and fun. It was great to watch. Matches are open to the public on Sundays from mid-December to early April. The gates open at 10 a.m. and the matches start at 1 p.m. Tailgating is encouraged. There are parking spots along the field. You back your vehicle in, set up your lawn chairs and have a picnic. There is food for sale, as well as beer, if you run out or if you didn't bring your own. At half time, spectators go out on the field and replace the divots. The cost was $12 per person and was well worth the price of admission.

“Wonderful place for a day out!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 December 2013

Sarasota Polo Club is a wonderful day for a wonderful day out. Don't miss an opportunity to watch a match in the beautiful surroundings of the Lakewood Ranch Polo Club. Season is on so get your tickets for the whole family and enjoy a day out in this beautiful setting!

“Spend a wonderful fun day in the outdoors”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2013

Really a fun afternoon. We have been to the Polo Club on the Club side (members only) for an upscale outdoor party and polo, and two times on the general public side for tailgate parties. Lot's of fun regardless of which side you watch the match from. If you are on the general public side, bring your chairs, food and drinks nothing is for sale. Very friendly atmosphere and something a little different to do for a change of pace. The matches are "seasonal", so be sure they are playing before you go.

“A great afternoon with friends”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2013

If you haven't gone to a polo match in Sarasota you must put it on your to do list. You can make an entire event just out of the tailgating! It's a fun afternoon. If you tailgate you will want to have a tent. This would be a great outing for your out of town visitors too.

Love this place, wonderful service and pretty decent food. My wife and I had dinner last Saturday for the first time and will be back. Great banquet space with nice décor.
