Located on a 1,900-acre preserve in Pine Plains, New York, just 90 minutes from New York City, the Mashomack Polo Club is a full-service club for polo players of all levels that features five tournament-class fields, one practice field, stick-and-ball areas, and an outdoor polo arena.

On Saturday, June 27, the Mashomack Polo Club will host the 18th-Annual Mashomack International Polo Challenge and Luncheon. The event begins at noon with a champagne reception, followed by a tented field-side luncheon and the exciting eight-goal International Polo Challenge. New this year are the Patron high-goal tables, offering the best views in the house, along with champagne on ice and a dedicated wait staff assigned to your table, along with other amenities. Also, Mashomack Polo Club is welcoming Team Egypt to the challenge for the first time.

This prestigious event attracts over 1,000 patrons and spectators and marks the official start of the summer social season in Millbrook. A wonderful day of sport brings guests from New York City, Westchester, and Fairfield County to spend the day in the countryside and experience the sport. Children who attend will be treated to their own activities, including access to the petting zoo and their own buffet.

In June, the club hosts the four-goal White Pants Challenge (June 5–7) and the eight-goal USPA Officers Cup (June 12–28); in July, the eight-goal USPA Eduardo Moore Invitational (July 3–26); and, in August, the USPA Constitution Cup (August 7–16) as well as the eight-goal Fall Classic (September 11–20).

Besides the exciting matches, private polo lessons are offered independently to both adults and children. Group clinics are also arranged from May through August.
