Located only minutes from downtown Newport, RI, the International Polo Grounds are situated at picturesque Glen Farm, 250 Linden Lane (off of Rte. 138) in Portsmouth, RI. This bucolic setting opens from a stunning entrance allée canopied by 100+ year old Linden boughs, in the last 100 acres of what was once a 700-acre manorial farm whose settlement dates back to the 1600’s. Its classical stone barns from the Gilded Age and its park-like grounds were rehabilitated by polo series founder, Dan Keating, and thrive today as an equestrian & community recreational property, jewel of Portsmouth and home of the Polo Series.
