What are we in town for?

From PGA golfing tournaments to art fairs and boat shows, there’s plenty to attract visitors down to Palm Beach, but for equestrian fans – and polo ones in particular – it is an excellent base to situate yourself for a few days of high goal and high jinx. There are two stand-out polo clubs to check out:

Away from the polo field?

This exclusive enclave of Florida has been the playground of the wealthy for over a 100 years. Since Standard Oil tycoon Henry Flagler set about clearing the swamps and the jungle into the winter resort of the well-heeled in the late 1800s, the people have flocked. Part of the golfing big leagues? Then try your luck on The Champion which includes the Jack Nicklaus-designed notorious three-hole-stretch, The Bear Trap. But if you’re not quite up to McIlroy par, the PGA National Resort Palm Beach Gardens have five tees to suit your standard. Indeed, there are 160 courses in the area so you’re bound to find something just right.

For Sunday brunch it has to be at The Circle, the spectacular dining room at The Breakers. Yes, we’ll have the made-to-order, light-as-a-cloud omelet but we’re also raiding the raw bar for seasonal stone crab.
