About Pacific Coast Open Trophy
Standing at nearly five feet tall and 106 years old, the Pacific Coast Open Trophy is considered the “finest polo trophy for which horsemen of any land have ever competed.” When a British polo team won the Pacific Coast Open in 1910, the trophy was taken overseas to England, until it made its way back to the US the following year. Every year, the winning team of the tournament is placed on a silver medallion at the handcrafted wooden base of the trophy. With silver, semiprecious stones, and 18 karat gold decorating this masterpiece, it’s no wonder people travel from all around the world to compete in the Gulfstream Pacific Coast Open.
