It’s “winter” along Florida’s Palm Coast, which means—besides lots of delicious sunshine and warmth as opposed to subzero temperatures and blizzards—it’s polo season!
Immersed in boutique luxury within the iconic walls of The Colony Hotel, you’ll find yourself just a ball’s toss away from one of the biggest and most decked-out centers for the horse-and-rider sport in the country: the International Polo Club Palm Beach. Use our famous hotel as your springboard for some gripping on-the-field action—and, of course, all the associated spectator socializing and swankiness!
High-Goal Polo & High Times at the International Polo Club Palm Beach
Partly a semi-private club, the International Polo Club Palm Beach also opens its matches to the public, providing a fine day out and about on the beautiful grounds in Wellington and some topnotch sporting excitement.
The gates open at noon for the Sunday matches with play commencing at 3 PM. You have multiple options for seating that span the basic-to-plush spectrum. Three sections of the lower stadium encompass the field-side green seats, while above them lie the private grandstand boxes. You can also opt for a champagne lunch in The Veuve Clicquot Pavilion, go full-bore VIP in the Celebrity Cruises Polo Lounge, or reserve a 10-x-10’ high-peak tailgate tent for the season.
Whatever perch you choose, you’ll have a blast. You can secure tickets online, by calling 561-282-5334, or pick them up at the gate on match days.

Add a Polo Match to the Mix on a Weekend Escape to The Colony Hotel
Perhaps you’re a dedicated and knowledgeable fan of the refined sport of polo. Maybe you’ve never experienced its speedy, hoof-pounding, mallet-swinging delights before. EIther way, attending a match at the International Polo Club Palm Beach is a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon, and you won’t find better luxury lodgings for the affair than The Colony Hotel.
