IXL Events has unveiled a 12-year plan for developing the 600-acre site, which includes 100 luxury lodges, a hotel and a ‘Player’s Pavilion’. Work will start this month on the pavilion, which will feature a bar area, restaurant and viewing terraces to watch the polo games. This first phase is expected to be completed in April 2016.
IXL Events at the Dallas Burston Polo Club boasts around 600 acres of indoor and outdoor event space. The grounds are home to the IXL Events Centre, six polo grounds, wedding venues, an all-weather SuperArena and the colonial clubhouse.
General manager of IXL Events, Major Richard Carney MBE, said: "The idea is to make the Dallas Burston Polo Club itself a popular destination for all – bringing visitors from far and wide to this fantastic venue in Warwickshire.
We believe that with this investment we can make the Dallas Burston Polo Club a top attraction where our visitors can enjoy a range of social activities and entertainment on site, but also enjoy the many sites and attractions that this region has to offer."
