Gulfstream Pacific Coast Open

Tournament History

Standing at a striking height of five feet, the glorious silver-and-gold trophy for the Pacific Coast Open is a dazzling sight. Crowned with an eagle supporting a globe and adorned with semiprecious stones, the trophy is mounted on a redwood base with side panels depicting lively polo scenes. The cup was commissioned in 1908 by friends and members of the Coronado Country Club in California. First competed for the following year, it was initially called the All American Polo Trophy.

Over the last 107 years, the trophy has resided at many clubs. Throughout the late 1920s until the early 1940s the tournament was hosted by numerous California clubs, often landing at each club for no more than a few years before switching to another. After World War II, the PCO moved to the posh and glamorous Beverly Hills Polo Club until 1952 when it took permanent residency at the Santa Barbara Polo & Racquet Club where it remains today.

Six teams will once again take to the field to compete for the largest title on the Pacific Coast. Defending champions Restoration Hardware are back with newest member Matt Coppola, along with Farmers & Merchants Bank, Klentner Ranch, Lucchese, Santa Clara and Sol de Agosto. An additional factor unique to this year’s tournament are two father and son teams competing together. Francisco Escobar will participate with son Luis for Santa Clara, and Francisco de Narvaez will be playing with son Paco for Sol de Agusto.
