In the world of polo, the Greenwich Polo Club is one of the most spectacular settings in the country to watch a match. Founded by Peter Brant, it is a stone’s throw from the Brant Foundation Art Study Center designed by esteemed architect Richard Gluckman. Three impeccably manicured fields and a handsome grandstand set the scene. Guests come in fine and fun fashion and a festive crowd sits along the sidelines laughing over cocktails and cigars.
At halftime, guests take to the field in the age-old tradition of stomping the divots. During polo play, small patches of grass and dirt are torn up by polo ponies’ quick stops and turns, creating divots that can be dangerous if left overturned. Then, after the match, spectators gather on the field to meet and greet players as they are presented with prizes and trophies.
