Elliot Essenfeld, Morgan, and her dad Ken Temple

Family Fun at Sterling Farms

I bumbled into this family threesome on No. 15, surely breaking the flow of the superb play of Ms. Morgan Temple, her dad Ken (light-blue shirt with shorts pictured right), and her uncle, Elliot Essenfeld. In response to my query on how it “was going the first week of June”, Elliot replied: “Excellent! It’s a great day… the weather’s great… the golf is so-so.”  “Great drives… not great short-game,” added Morgan. All three agreed the “greens are rolling well,” and Ken finished by saying: “Come on over, it’s a great course!”

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!
