Summer and Winter Polo
at Empire Polo Club in Indio, CA
INDIO — The new partnership formed between Twin Palms Polo Club, Rancho Polo and Empire Polo Clubs will offer a mix of U.S.P.A.-sanctioned and club tournaments and enlist player voice as a driving force in the club’s administration, according to a letter released by Al Haagen III on Wed. July 7.
Haagen said the club will also feature player development options with coaching and low-goal tournaments, a full-size indoor arena and premium stabling with turnouts–for a single, low, all-inclusive price. Players, members, their friends and families will be able to enjoy full-service dining and entertainment at the club’s Tack Room Tavern bar and restaurant and a new Date Shed night club. Its tournament schedule and pricing will be available within weeks, the club said.
Summer polo is currently under way. Green horse polo is held Tuesdays through Sundays at 7:30 a.m. Polo under the Lights continues and the Coyote Cup Open tournament is scheduled in August.
The Empire Polo Club is the region’s premier polo club and event destination featuring seven diverse venues and five polo fields situated on a thriving, sustainable oasis of palms and plant life. The 225-acre property offers the signature Medjhool Lake, Tiki Hut and Sculpture Garden, The Rose Garden and Pavilion, The Forum with its tiered terraced space and private field, and the majestic Hacienda del Toro. Full service dining and entertainment is featured on site at The Tack Room Tavern bar and restaurant and the valley’s hottest nightclub, The Date Shed.
