Attending Sunday Polo is one of the must do activities in the Desert during the winter months. Each Sunday, thousands of polo fans pour into Eldorado to feel the rumble of galloping hooves as players’ reach speeds over 35 mph all while maintaining control of a little white ball. Polo is in fact a contact sport and therefore it is often described as “hockey on horseback”, players look to score through the uprights at each end of the 10 acre field. It doesn’t take long for first-time attendees to get wrapped up in the excitement of a match as spectators can get up to speed with live play-by-play commentary from resident announcer Tony Gregg.
Contrary to some popular belief everyone is welcome to attend, guests can enjoy the polo sidelines in casual comfort by tailgating, a few lawn-chairs, a picnic and you have your own perfect polo event. The Eldorado Clubhouse is the best place to experience Sunday polo in style – every Sunday at 12pm and 2pm. For just $10 per person, a full service menu and bar are offered, and seating is available for parties from 2 to 50. Reservations are highly recommended for Clubhouse seating, please call the Clubhouse reservation hotline: (760)-831-POLO (7656)
