Dress Code

 

Arunga Polo Club is a place to relax and enjoy yourself, so there is no dress code.  If you need a bit of guidance, you can't go wrong with jeans, boots and a shirt for the lads and the same for the ladies, although dresses are also a hit.   Leave the high heels in the car as the lush grass makes it difficult to walk and you really want to be stomping those divots with some flatties.   But feel free to bring them out at night when the party gets started in the clubhouse.  

 

Dont forget a hat and a jumper or jacket for when the sun sets behind the big Blue Mountains.

Spectators are welcome to bring their own food and drink to the polo. The clubhouse will open during tournament hours where visitors can purchase light refreshments and snacks.
