The Argentario Polo Club is located in Tuscany at Monte Argentario, one of the most beautiful seaside resorts in Italy, with a coastline characterized by rocky beaches of extraordinary beauty.

The Club is in an exceptional position, the polo fields and stables are located in the typical Maremma landscape, with splendid sea views, bordering the new 18 hole golf course. 

From its inception, in 1987, at the Argentario Polo Club some of the best Italian polo matches have been played, making it a centre of sporting excellence; many great polo players have passed by: Gonzalo and Horacito Heguy, Alejandro (Piki) Diaz Alberti, Santiago Araya, David Sterling, Juan Martin Nero, Juan Josè Branè,  Agustin Garcia Grossi,  Alfio Marchini and Bartolomè Castagnola.

The passion for this sport and the good maintenance of this polo field, recognized as one of the best in Europe, have made the Argentario Polo Club the place of reference for Italian polo, recently the sporting organization can boast various Italian and European records: the 1st edition of the Ladies Polo Cup, the first women's polo tournament to be played in Italy, (the 2nd , the 3rd and the 4th edition Pellicano Ladies Cup,  was sponsored by one of the best Relais & Chateaux hotels in the world, Il Pellicano Hotel), was the first in Italy to organize junior tournament (10-15 year old) and also the first in Europe to have organized an 18 hp tournament at night (on occasion of the XX° anniversary of the Club 2007) every year for the Coppa Italia F.I.S.E. and the Summer Cup there is an Italian record of enrollment teams, second only to Sotogrande. 

The white polo ball started to race on the Club fields  with the spring tournament, the Silver Cup, the event that every year initiates the high level tournaments  in Italy.

But it is between July and August that the Argentario becomes the host of polo with a succession of events of great sporting and social importance.

Since last year the real point of excellence is the Ladies Tournament, (the women's tournaments are having a big success in the world), the Argentario Polo Club wanted to promote this initiative also in our country, which does not lack women players.

The great success received in the first edition of the Ladies Cup has made it possible for all the editions to enter the WCT (women's championship tournament), the most famous women tournaments in the world.

Also for the 4th  edition, The Hotel Pellicano, one of the most famous in the world, has united its name to this exceptional event.

The  Pellicano Hotel and Argentario Polo Club have a partnership since the beginning: both are symbols of excellence in their fields and their presence and activities on the territory give value to a destination that is already famous.

The sporting and elegant environment gives to this corner of  Maremma an  amazing atmosphere of English-South American style.
