Where else in the world can you go surfing in the morning, eat brunch at an ocean front grill and enjoy a polo match just 20 minutes across town in the afternoon? Vero Beach might just be the only place that’s possible! It’s a synergy like no other brought to you by BG Management.
Four years ago BG Vero Beach Polo exploded into the coveted east coast polo circuit when it opened its 36-acre equestrian compound just minutes off I-95 in Vero Beach. Weekly competitive matches are held Sundays, starting Jan. 7nd through April 29th with plenty of family friendly activities for the spectators. Gates open at 12:30pm and guests are invited to bring a picnic for tailgating. During the half time champagne divot stomp guests are invited to mount the wooden horse, swing a mallet and hit the ball to get a feel for the game.
“We are excited about the growth of the equestrian community in Vero Beach and we’re committed to the game of polo both here and with our polo partners around the globe,” said BG president Bobby Genovese. “ We also have a commitment to the Vero Beach community we’ve grown to love. That’s why when the opportunity presented itself to take over the management of Sebastian Inlet State Park we welcomed it! It’s our way of doing something positive for the environment and the local community.”
This past summer BG Management took over the marina, campground, rental and food concessions within Sebastian Inlet State Park. Big changes are being made to welcome local residents and visitors alike to one of the state’s most diverse and beautiful playgrounds. The marina has been renovated with new docks and now has a complete fleet of brand new kayaks, paddleboards and pontoon boats available for rent. The BG Surfside Grill is morphing into an oceanfront-gathering place suitable for large groups and weddings in addition to providing healthy, hearty breakfasts and lunches. There’s a fully stocked bait shop for the fishermen casting their lines off the jetty and a gift shop to pick up essentials for your day at the beach. It won’t be long before the BG Surfside Grill will also have surfboards for rent so you can test your skill at catching a wave!
Families with young children will enjoy spending part of the day at the cove where children can wade in the water, scoop up hermit crabs and seahorses and interact with the resident manatees. A rock jetty protects the cove creating a pool of calm, shallow water that’s a safe place to play, float and swim without fear of rip currents or tidal undertow.
So this weekend why not take a drive up to Sebastian Inlet State where you can fish, swim, wade and boat. Then head over to BG Vero Beach Polo for an exhilarating polo match and divot stomp!
