SPRING SEASON 2012

The Most Beautiful Time of the Year!

If you haven't been to polo yet this Spring, you've been missing the best weather of the year!  Be sure and mark your calendars for this weekend's Malbec Cup.  Enjoy a glass of Argentine's finest, while experiencing the beauty and excitement of Sunday polo. 

MEMBER'S CORNER

News:

St. Regis Houston is offering all HPC members a special rate on the weekend, during polo season!  Don't miss out on this awesome opportunity to enjoy the outstanding service and beautiful accommodations of the St. Regis Hotel!

Houston Executive Airport is offering all HPC members a special rate on fuel!  Mention your affiliation with the Club while making your plans and take advantage of the savings!

Member Notes:
Just a reminder that attendance at the Club has grown dramatically and we are utilizing almost every Reserved box in the Grandstand. If you have special guests and would like to arrange for Reserved seating, please contact the club by COB each Friday!

Due to our recent growth, we have created a Member Guest parking lot to the left of the Club office.  This lot is available to all Box Holders and their guests during Sunday games.  The shuttle will pick up and drop off just outside the lot, for quick transport across the field.

Many thanks to Wilderness Farm & Ranch for providing our Sunday shuttles!

Don't Forget

   • On questionable weather days, log onto the HPC website and click "Weather Update" under the "Club" tab, for a real-time update!
   • Please be aware that no outside beverages are allowed at HPC on Sundays.  Ruth's Chris will provide concessions on the member grandstand side and Berryhill Baja Grill will provide concessions in the General Admission area, at every game!

   • Due to limited parking space, member guests will be asked to park in the member guest parking lot, which is located to the left of the office.

HPC News

We are excited to welcome Ruth's Chris Steak House as our new concessionaire in the member grandstand area and Berryhill Baja Grill on the Red Oak lawn side of the field!
