The Devil is in the Details

A Celebration of Color

You see it everywhere here: stunning detail. From the bursting floral coloring to the edging of every hard-to-get-to-gullet and burn; from the dazzling ornamental grasses to the stands of pruned bushes and hedges; from the closely-cropped 2.5″ blades of grass ensconcing errant golfballs in the rough to the double-rolled blazing fast putting surfaces… the Devil at Sterling Farms… is in the Details.

Nobody knows it better than the Unsung Heroes at Sterling Farms who care for it all, like golf course superintendent Mike Golden, senior gardener and resident artist/colorist Gilberto Natareno, and his  esteemed sidekick, the gifted writer Gus.

They are part of a big family at Sterling Farms, all of whom deservedly take great price in Sterling Farms and its green spaces. Yep… it’s everywhere… detail.

Flowers a burst in dazzling colors and miles of silken lawns… the only things hiding are the weeds!

Such elaborate care is usually reserved for the privileged, well-heeled, country club denizens. But at Sterling Farms, you can show up in a $500 beater and be welcomed by the African daisies, and monarch butterflies. They don’t care how much money you don’t have, and neither does anyone else.

This is just one big public country club, where everyone is a member. You don’t want to miss it!

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!
