The team was established around 17 years ago and has been one of the best polo teams ever since. Along with Adolfo Cambiaso, La Dolfina constitutes some of the most important players in the history of polo-like David Starling, Pablo Mac Donough and Juan Martin Nero.
In 2013, La Dolfina won the highest honor in the polo world, The Argentine Triple Crown of Polo. The team defeated Ellerstina in the finals of both Tortugas and Hurlingham Open. Again, in 2014 and 2015 the team won the Triple Crown title by winning all three finals of Tortugas, Hurlingham and Argentina Open. La Dolfina is known to be exceptional with being unbeatable in their performance. The team is an epitome of hard work and perseverance. Every team has a backbone, for La Dolfina Adolfo Cambiaso is the one. Adolfo Cambiaso has gained the recognition of being “a monster” on the polo field, his contribution is historic in the achievement of Triple Crown of Polo.
In years 2002, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2009, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016, La Dolfina won the Campeonato Argentino championship and Tortugas and Hurlingham 9 and 4 times respectively. Their achievements have been persistent ever since then and growing with every passing year.
The godfather of Polo, Alberto Pedro Heguy won the Argentine Open 15 times with the great Coronel Suarez team of the 1960s and 1970s. His team includes Horacio Heguy, and the two knights - Alfredo and the great Juan Carlos. In the words of Heguy, he mentions "The four of them are outstanding, but Adolfo is something else. Individually, he is a monster."
