Will the Duke go to the polo in Melbourne where some members of the Mornington Peninsula Polo Club will be in action? "Polo is one of the main sports on the Peninsula going ahead like wildfire. Since the old Mt. Eliza
Polo Club was re-formed about two years ago, great interest has been shown in the sport by people from not
only the Peninsula, but also from Melbourne. THE MEMBERSHIP of the new club has leapt to 100 and is still rising. The club conducts its matches in a lovely setting at Tuerong Park, Mornington.
It is the property of the club's secretary, Mr. J.V.Edgar. Mr, Edgar is one of the club's most experienced
players. Mr. A.H.L.Gibson is president of the club."
Tuerong Park was the majority of the pre-emptive right of the Tuerong Run with its historic homestead located at Melway 151 K3 being used as an office by Dromana Estate Vineyards which has produced a history of the property. The bend in Vineyard Lane is its south west corner and the end of Gillett Rd its south east corner.
