Home to two stunning grounds with a Castle backdrop, excellent stabling and a Martin Collins all-weather exercise track, plus schooling and stick and ball areas
Guards Polo Club officially opened its impressive Castle Ground at its Flemish Farm complex in September 2014. This event was the culmination of five years’ extensive work developing the Club’s stable and grounds complex, five miles from Smith’s Lawn, but still situated within the Royal Park.
Lord Patrick Beresford, Guards Polo Club's first polo manager in 1955 and a life member of the Club to this day, cut the ribbon to officially mark this high-goal ground open for play. With its stunning backdrop of Windsor Castle, The Castle Ground is the jewel in the crown of Flemish Farm, which also features 100 stables, grooms’ accommodation, a Martin Collins all-weather exercise track, schooling and stick and ball areas. A second, ground, to be called The Cavalry Ground, will come on stream in early 2015 and both grounds will be used regularly throughout the 2015 season and beyond.
The stabling at Flemish Farm is available to rent per season by playing members of Guards Polo Club only, although there is currently a waiting list. By renting stables, our players and their grooms have exclusive use of the impressive all-weather exercise track, which proved invaluable in this spring’s continual wet weather, along with the schooling and stick and ball areas. In addition to the stabling and exercise facilities, there is also hard standing for horseboxes, plus a good sized tack room and blanket washing facilities.
The entire complex is managed day-to-day by Greg Keating, with the Polo Office at Guards Polo Club in overall command of all operations at the Farm. For more details or to arrange a visit to Flemish Farm please call the Polo Office on 01784 470009 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
