Journal

We are veering toward the hottest time of the year, and I caught up with Sterling Farms golfer, and SFMC member, Scott Laughinghouse, on the 18th fairway, as he was finishing his round on a warm Monday, the 20th of July. We had a high of 89 that day, and while it was feeling hotter, the same day last year was four degrees warmer! Read More
PGA professional Keith Handler, has written an interesting series of instructional articles, the first of which which appears here on the Sterling Farms Golf Shop website.

Eyes on Sterling

Sights for sore eyes.

Springtime at Sterling, is always a stunner, especially just outside the Pro Shop, where Gilberto, Gus, and course superintendent Mike Golden's team work extra hard to buff things out for all to see. With all of the masks, rules, and safety precautions, what a pleasure to behold, and a tad cheerier too! Read More
We Americans are a reslilient people (especially Sterling Farms Golfers!). "In an attempt to take Baltimore, the British attacked Fort McHenry, which protected the harbor. Bombs were soon bursting in air, rockets were glaring, and all in all it was a moment of great historical interest. During the bombardment, a young lawyer named Francis Off Key [sic] wrote 'The Star-Spangled Banner', and when, by the dawn's early light, the British heard it sung, they fled in terror." − Richard Armour. Let us all unite, and bid farewell to COVID-19. Read More
It was 66-degrees Fahrenheit on January 12, 2020 when I was out playing on the 3rd hole when I suddenly encountered Bambi's Ball Hunt, which just 'felt' like it belonged front and center in this installment of Sterling Farms Golfer, 2020 Winter Edition. Read More
here exist many forms of wildlife at Sterling Farms Golf Course, and the tree rabbit, a.k.a., squirrel, is certainly one of the property's more numbered residents. Read More
Hanging on for dear life! How often we feel that way on the golf course? This little bumble bee was doing its thing right outside the Clubhouse at Sterling Farms. “Don't tell me I can‘t fly,” it leered.... These Blue Salvia are by design. Their color is stunning! Check ’em out. Read More

Unsung  Heroes

It's all about the people.

One thing I've learned for sure: marshall Edward L. Gentile’s math skills are indisputable! The former PerkinElmer electrical engineer knows how to work a slide rule to no end, so don’t even try to pull a fast one on him! He’ll getcha! Read More
Marco Diaz is lot like George: sees me coming and heads for the hills. He knows I’m gunning to snag a picture of him, George, too. The motion blur is impossible to avoid with Marco, because he moves at the speed of light, almost, because the World Cup is coming! Read More
Bob is a Glenbrook native who spent 35+ years at Unilever before moving up to Sterling Farms as the clean-up hitter of the marshalls. A wobbily 2019 has left the once 13.* index scoring too much for comfort these days, but he’s a good egg, and will bring it around. Meanwhile, always know his bark is louder than his bite! (or, so I hope it is.... More on that later!) Read More

From the desk of Paul grillo, executive director, Stamford Golf Authority

Welcome to Sterling Farms Golfer. Over the past five decades, Sterling Farms has evolved into one of the premiere golf destinations anywhere in the region. We continually strive to maintain, if not exceed, that distinction, and know we owe it all to our Stamford families, friends and neighbors, as well as our patrons like you. Now is the best time of the year to play our spectacular 18 hole championship golf course. Our Golf Course Superintendent, Mike Golden, and his whole team, are leaders in the world of greenkeeping, and we are very proud of the quality of their hard work. I think you'll find our putting greens, fairways, tees, roughs—and every landscape feature here—reflects their devotion and hard work. It is spectacular. Sterling Farms is home to the area's top driving range facility. You won't find a better value, or level of quality, anywhere! We take great pride and joy serving you, and our local community.
