The Polo Field
  • The design of the polo field at Surya Polo Club started with the site selection process. The current site offered several advantages including well draining gravel soils, generally level surface and easy access from a main road. 
  • Next we hired a Surveyor to plot the contours of the land followed by a "cut-fill" analysis done by an Engineer to identify areas where material would need to be removed from or added to make the field level. The field must have a good rolling characteristic and a "crown" to naturally drain the water away from the field. 
  • After filling the low spots and ensuring a good "crown", the field was seeded in early 2009 with a special athletic turf blend (tested to withstand the wear from horses' hooves). 
  • After a year of maintenance and mowing, the field was ready to play in summer 2010, our first playing season.
  • We take great pride in the quality of our field which is maintained by equipment (tractor, mower etc) owned by the polo club
