First Class

Played the course for the first time today. Interesting layout, wi5 the only issue being that a couple of Par 3s are 190 off the White Tees, which is a bit long for my taste. The course is beautifully maintained and is one of the best munis I’ve ever played. Staff is well granites and very hospitable. I will be back!

Amazing

Public course with private club conditions. Course is in great shape, holes are all so unique and greens are fast but true. If you re within an hour of Stamford, play this course.

Pleasant surprise

What a great day it was! The only problem was a persistent Ranger, who made the guys nervous when he lurked around and twice said we were holding up the rest of the course. I am myself a Ranger at our local course in Brooklyn, and I know exactly what pace of play truly means. When you put a few twosomes behind us, a foursome, things won't be as smooth. 3 times we caught up to the guys in front of us, so we could'nt have been that slow! All in All, a GREAT day of golf!

Electric golf cart availability makes golf available for seniors.

Easy to book. Courteous staff. Course in great shape. Good pace of play. My home course in Westchester does not permit electric carts. Sterling Farms will be my home course for the foreseeable future.

It's ok to play if you are in the nearby.
But not to drive on hour.

One of the best

First time playing this course, drove from nyc. Really enjoyed this course. The layout was really fun, a couple holes that are drive-able, was just a really fun course overall. The conditions were absolutely excellent. Tee boxes, faiways, rough, greens were all in great condition. Greens were in excellent condition, fast and true. Bunkers were very nice and soft sand. For this time of year I was shocked to see a public course in such good of condition. I’ll be getting out there again before seasons end and you should too.

Good Greens

Course was in good shape - aerations were almost totally healed.. Barely noticeable. Nice layout with some challenging holes. Would gladly play more often if it were easier to get to from Eastern CT.
