Then and Now

Home is where the heart is... indeed!

Home is where the heart is, right? Who can deny we all feel a little better whenever we see these old bones on the left. This was once home to Atherton Hobler, and his family, who moved here from Bronxville, NY, in 1938.  Mr. Hobler was a founder and CEO of Benton & Bowles, one of the largest ad agencies in the country. Atherton ran Woodacres Farm, as it was called back then, from 1938-1941, on his spare time! Yep… did it after he got home from his daily NYC commute! 

Now the Clubhouse at Sterling looks as good as ever, and has been almost completely renovated. What’s not to love about this picture? (And this was before the new roof, new entryway, new interior updates!)

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!
