You won’t find Nacho Figueras on the East End this summer. In fact, you won’t find any of his ponied pals either, since the closure of Bridgehampton Polo Club.
Founded 20 years ago by paper magnate and art collector Peter Brant and Black Watch Polo team owner Neil Hirsch, the club was shuttered by Two Trees development owners Jane and David Walentas. They recently subdivided the property into “private estates” and sold a large portion in May, according to Page Six.
And while the land is still usable for private matches, or practice sessions, the stars of polo have decamped for California.
Worst comes to worst, you can always ditch your elitist friends and head to Darlington, Pennsylvania for a day of polo and Pabst.
