Polo Lessons at Waterhall Polo Centre, Apes Hill

Apes Hill Club
Apes Hill , St. James
Tel: 246 432 4500's insider take:

On such a posh island, could there be a more fitting game to play? And the Sport of Kings' sweeping setting will suit even the bluest of blood. Panoramic views of both coasts frame the Apes Hill Golf and Polo Resort, once a 17th century sugar plantation. The property—slated for completion in late 2008—will be the largest of its kind in the Caribbean. Until that is completed, you can take lessons at the Waterhall Polo Centre from professional British player Neil Dixon. If you'd rather enjoy the game without being saddle-side, there are matches several times a week, from December to June. A terribly urbane crowd—women in broad-brimmed sunhats and men in seersucker suits—nibble on tea sandwiches as waiters glide around with trays of Champagne.
