Kyle Hedstrom Named Connecticut Section PGA Public Merchandiser of the Year

ROCKY HILL, Conn. – Kyle Hedstrom, head PGA Professional at Stanley Golf Course in New Britain, Conn., has been selected by the Connecticut Section PGA as the recipient of the 2011 Public Merchandiser of the Year award. The Merchandiser of the Year Award recognizes excellence in business and merchandising at private, public and resort golf facilities.

Hedstrom, 36, a nine-year member of The PGA of America, has been overseeing the golf operations at Stanley Golf Course since 2004. Prior to that, he was an assistant PGA Professional at Shuttle Meadow Country Club, and an apprentice during his time at Ellington Ridge Country Club and Black Hall Club.

 “It’s an honor to be recognized by your peers as to having one of the nicer golf shops and I was fortunate enough to win the award previously in 2005 as well,” says Hedstrom. “For people to recognize that you have a consistent golf shop merchandising operation within the last six years means a lot.”

 Hedstrom was also honored as a five-time member of the PGA President’s Council on Growing the Game. He is a graduate of Central Connecticut State University with a major in Business and now resides in Wethersfield with wife, Leanne, seven-year-old son, Jack, and three-year-old daughter, Kayla.

About the Connecticut Section PGA

The Connecticut Section PGA is a not-for-profit organization chartered by the PGA in 1933 to promote golf and enhance the livelihood of its members. The section is comprised of more than 350 men and women PGA Professionals from Connecticut and Western Massachusetts, the experts in the game and business of golf.

New Britain 
(860) 827-1362It may be 81 years old, but it’s got state-of-the-art GPS systems on its golf carts, 27 holes, ultra-modern practice facilities and a 19-bay driving range with heaters and lighting. But Kyle Hedstrom, Stanley’s head golf professional, says the reason the course was voted best in the region this year is the top-notch condition of the course: "Even though the economy is down, we’re not letting our course conditions or customer service slip."

Mayor Timothy T. Stewart and Parks and Recreation Commission Chairman Jamie Giantonio announced today that Stanley Golf Course was voted “Best Golf Course” in the Advocate’s Best of Hartford Readers’ Poll 2011. The Hartford Advocate polled their readers in search of the best of the best and this year received a bigger response than ever before. Voted number one by over one hundred thousand Hartford Advocate readers, Stanley Golf Course proves to be the best of the best.

“This is another piece of the puzzle that makes Stanley a total championship golf course” said Mayor Stewart. “I am so proud of Stanley in being recognized throughout Connecticut as the best golf course.”

Stanley Golf Course located at 245 Hartford Road, New Britain is a beautiful 27 hole public golf course with a nineteen station, covered, heated and lighted driving range. The golf course has a fleet of 87 new 2011 state-of-the art Precedent Excel golf carts that promises to enhance the golfer’s experience. Stanley Golf Course is home to an award winning Pro Shop and home to the fine dining and drinking venue of Whinstone Tavern.

“This honor validates what the golfers have been telling us for years” said Bill DeMaio, Director of Parks and Recreation. “All golfers should try Stanley, the “Best Golf Course”, for the ultimate golfing experience.”


Red Nine

Red Nine Redesign Status

The Red 9 is now closed for an extensive design makeover. We think its new topography will be challenging yet fair for all golfing abilities with water hazards, elevated greens, doglegs and well placed bunkers to test your shot making skills while at the same time providing you with a pleasurable and fun experience. 
During the golf course re-construction, our white and blue courses will be fully operational and open for play. Ground clearing is now underway for the redesigned Red 9. We need to see what progress is being made in the next few months to better determine when the redesigned Red 9 will open for play.
You can view the new Red 9 layout right here. We are definitely excited about its new design and we are looking forward to playing on it, as we hope you will be too, when it reopens. We will be posting periodic updates along with photos of the redesigned nine while work is in progress. So please do check back periodically.

Women's Info

Women's Club - General Information

For more than 40 years, Stanley Women's Golf Club has offered golfing opportunities to women of all ages and abilities. The club is a non-profit organization with a stated purpose to promote and encourage women's golf. Although we compete for prizes, friendship and camaraderie are our primary goals with membership open to all women 16 years of age and older. It doesn't matter if you are just starting to play competitively or have a low handicap; we welcome your participation in the club.

Our schedule of 13 tournaments is played on Saturdays with tee times beginning at 9:30 A.M. for most events.  Stanley golf course has 27 holes; our tournaments play either blue/white or white/red courses.  Tournament sign-up begins approximately three weeks prior to each event.

Annual membership dues are $80.00 for returning and past members and $85.00 for new members. This covers the costs for prize money, administration, and a Connecticut State Golf Association GHIN handicap. Our Member-Member/Member-Guest tournament requires an additional fee to cover the cost of post-tournament refreshments.

A GHIN handicap is required for tournament play. If you don't already have a handicap, join and we will help you get one. For new members, a handicap will be established upon submission of five 18-hole scores (or equivalent in 9 hole scores). These scores must be provided to the handicap chairperson prior to participation in tournament play. Individual tournament play is by flights so players compete with players of like ability, with gross and net prizes awarded in each flight. Everyone has a chance to win.

Membership in the Stanley Women's Golf Club also enables you to join SNEWGA (Southern New England Women's Golf Association), which provides additional tournament and golfing activities at over 40 courses throughout Connecticut. Membership to SNEWGA is an additional $15 per year.
