International Polo Club named Florida sports venue of the year

The Florida Sports Foundation recently named the International Polo Club as the Large Market Sports Venue of the Year in the state at the annual Florida Sports Summit.

Developer Mark Bellissimo bought the Polo Club last year from a trust associated with imprisoned polo mogul John Goodman.

The club has nine polo fields 248 acres of land, and it hosts other sports like soccer and lacrosse in the offseason.

The polo season will start up again in the fall with traditional polo matches and the new gladiator polo format.
