Santa Barbara Polo: Opening Weekend!

Santa Barbara Polo: Opening Weekend!

It's hard to call the Santa Barbara Polo Club a hidden gem when Prince William has played on it's verdant fields, but many people (including locals!) have never taken in a match there.  

Shielded by tall, lush hedges on all sides, the Club is situated a stone's throw from the Pacific Ocean and the celebrity-laden Padaro Lane (home to Kevin Costner's 10 acre dream parcel). Set against the backdrop of the Carpinteria foothills, the Club hosts high-level polo tournaments from May to October. 

This Sunday, May 7th, marks Opening Day for the 2017 season.  Not unlike the Kentucky Derby which will be run the day prior, Polo Sundays are celebrated with high fashion, big hats, and plenty of champagne.

The Summerland Winery Lisle Nixon Memorial is the first event of the year and kicks off Sunday, May 7th, at 3pm.  While you're there, come visit 3375 Foothill Rd. #911, the crown jewel of the Polo Field condos (listed by David M. Kim).  I'll be hosting an open house from 1pm-4pm. 

Boasting the best location in the entire complex, and having been remodeled down to the studs, this property sits right behind the goal posts of the main field.  Host friends and family on the spacious ocean-view patio during the matches, then retreat to the magazine-worthy 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom interior after enjoying a classic Santa Barbara sunset.

I look forward to seeing you there!
