DRESS CODE - Casual clean looks and flowing spring flare are ideal for a day at the polo. Ladies are recommended to leave the heels at home with the gents, matching tailored shirts with dress shorts or chinos to achieve a polished yet casual look.
Ladies, fascinators are a NO, NO however stylish sun hats, sunnies and head scarves are ideal. Opportunities to get active throughout the day during the Divot Stomp and mingling with the players and horses so a little practicality is required to maintain that air of class. Relaxed, feminine dresses cut above the knee or longer playsuits, Maxi dresses, tailored shorts paired with a shirt are all great. Effortless class, sophistication, fresh make up and natural hair.
Men steer clear of dark suits, t-shirts, and thongs! Chino’s or a tailored pant paired with loafers, or two tone brogues. Classic shirts or even some gingham with a bow tie. Blazers, sports jackets and stylish hats all offer great polo style.
