This year it is more than just “another season” of polo at Mokuleia. 2013 marks the 50th anniversary of the ﬁrst matches played at the Hawaii Polo Club at Mokuleia. It was 1963 when the Mokuleia Polo Club opened and the crowds came out from Honolulu to attend that ﬁrst season of Sunday Polo Matches by the sea on opening day in 1963. Walter Dillingham presided over the blessing of the ﬁeld, his son Ben Dillingham umpired the match and Duke Kahanamoku threw in the ﬁrst ball. Five decades and a lot of polo games have passed since that ﬁrst Sunday of polo at Mokuleia. And here we are, 50 years later, ready to begin again!
A number of special events and fun social activities are also scheduled this year. The
Mother’s Day Brunch is back by popular demand, along with a full moon diner or two
and cocktail parties, and BBQs for visiting teams and members to meet and mingle.
Social dues for the 2013 season remain the same as for the 2012 season: $300 for
singles and $500 for couples. It's a terrific value if you enjoy polo and coming out to the fields all season: With 24 matches, a singles Clubhouse pass works out to about $12 per Sunday. A single pass to the Clubhouse area for one day is $25. Contact Jackie Ornella at email@example.com.
With the upgrades to the clubhouse area, there has been an increased demand for seating under the tent. A few “reserved season tables” are still available, but the number is limited, so be sure to call/email sooner rather than later to reserve one if you so desire.
