Bronze Trophy®

Tournament History

Established in 1980, the Bronze Trophy® is a national tournament played at the 8- to 12-goal level. A former staple of the Gulfstream Polo Club (now defunct) in Lake Worth, Florida, for over ten years, 2020 will be the fifth year it has been awarded to New Bridge Polo & Country Club in Aiken, South Carolina.

The 2020 competition features six competitive teams including Brookland Plantation, SD Farms, Foxdale Equine Veterinary Services, Goose Green/Hutchinson Farm, LBL Polo and Hit Air. Both LBL Polo (2018) and Foxdale Equine (2017) have one win to their credit while the remaining teams hope to inscribe their name on the trophy for the first time. Among this year's competition is Team USPA Member Jack Whitman playing for Hit Air.

The Venue

Driving into the New Bridge Polo & Country Club (New Bridge) in Aiken, South Carolina, one may think they had just entered an argentine estancia. With its signature four-board black fencing and orange clay dirt roads--it’s no accident that the New Bridge Polo Club alludes to the current mecca of polo. Founded by amateur polo player Russ McCall in 2000, the club was created in partnership with Argentine professional Matias Magrini.

The astounding 861-acre New Bridge development boasts five world-class polo fields in a private gated community. While that may sound intimidating, McCall points out that the gates serve less as a barrier to keep people out, but rather as a means to keep the occasional escaped horse in. The atmosphere of the club remains true to its humble beginnings, unpretentious, in a natural wooded setting, framed by southern pines and surrounded by an effortless tranquility.

The centerpiece of the club is the rustic colonial-style clubhouse. Constructed of old wood that was shipped from Argentina and assembled onsite, it brings the history and ambiance of the Argentine way of life to South Carolina. The clubhouse also conveniently houses a player’s bar, restaurant and outdoor asado area for post-game parties. Spectators are invited to sit on the porch with a spectacular view of Field 1 to watch the featured Sunday matches. New Bridge offers country living without the inconveniences of country distances. Cottage-style bungalows are situated on residential lots lining Field 1, as well as larger estate houses with the option to buy or build.
