Empire Polo Club

Indio, CA


You may also book at any hotel that has availability on this link - first come, first serve.  

IMPORTANT - the tournament allocates rooms to us based on ACTUALIZED reservations from the prior year.  If we have a lot of rooms that are cancelled, that impacts all of our families/teams that attend the following year because the tournament will not allocate enough rooms for us.  Please only book what you need!
