ABOUT THE CLUB
The OKC Polo Club provides recreational opportunities for individuals and their families to take part in the sport of polo at a stunning, privately owned facility, conveniently located in Jones, OK. We are just five miles east of I-35 on Memorial Road and just a short drive from the Oklahoma City metro.
The OKC Polo Club is an active member of the United States Polo Association (USPA). We are part of the USPA Great Plains circuit and our founder, David Ragland, currently serves as the governor of this circuit.
We are a well-equipped private club that is complete with full amenities. Among these are two barns, a regulation size polo field, two practice fields, an arena and a wooden practice horse. We also have a beautiful shaded area that is used for 'after the match' events and other social outings.
We offer polo lessons, clinics, practice chukkers, club games, tournaments and USPA sanctioned events. Our season runs from May 1st through October 31st. We hope you will consider becoming a member or coming out to tailgate and support the sport of polo. Give us a call, send us an email or message us on Facebook for more information.
FOUNDER: DAVID RAGLAND
David’s love for horses and the game of polo have taken him to many exciting places, including Singapore, New Delhi, Kuala Lampur, Buenos Aires, Costa Careyas, Wellington, FL, and Lexington, KY, where he was proud to play in the 8 goal President’s Cup. His polo travels have earned him countless polo friends around the globe.
Through his 35 years in polo, he has been very active in the USPA (United States Polo Association), serving many years as governor of his circuit. He served on the USPA Executive Committee for four years and for five years, he was Chairman of the USPA Interscholastic/Intercollegiate Polo Committee. Currently, along with managing OKC Polo Club, he is serving as Governor of the Great Plains Circuit, is a board member of the Polo Development LLC, and is coach and advisor for the OSU Polo Team.
In 2008, David and his wife, Judy, bought some land in Jones, OK, as a pasture for their horses to graze. In 2010, he sold their family business and began devoting the majority of his time to polo development. By 2013, that pasture land had grown to include a lake, a new home, two barns, three polo fields, an arena, and the OKC Polo Club, which he now shares with Oklahoma’s polo community.
