Money Talks

The range gets upgraded.


Sterling Farms Golf Course, and all that is a part of the property, gets a lot of use. By my estimation (and I wholly admit this is purely hogwash), the driving range golf balls are hit at least 7,954,064,223,105 times a year….

That’s a heck of a lotta wear and tear, even for a range ball! Well, thank heavens the leadership at Sterling Farms reinvests the money it earns right back into the facilities we all love, and even with their best efforts, we want more, more, more!

Last February the balls nearly ran out! Snow was on the ground and froze over, so Gus and Guy had no hope of collecting the yellow pellets. And they (the golf balls) were old!

If there is one thing many can’t stand, it is staring down at a worn out ball, knowing there’s no way on earth that thing will fly very far. How deflating is that?!

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.
