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.
Sterling Farms’ senior gardener, Gilberto Natareno, is an amazing artist, and graciously sends me his favorite photos of Sterling Farms, when he’s working course maintenance early in the morning, since I live half an hour away, and can’t be there as much I’d love to be. Here’s a few morning shots taken by Gilberto took over the past couple of days.

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. On behalf of all of us here at Sterling Farms, welcome and thank you!
