Apgar Turf Farm grows and installs Delaware Certified Sod. The sod we offer was created and tested to be resistant to disease, drought tolerant, and thrive in the Delmarva and mid-Atlantic regions.
Apgar Turf Farm, Inc. has evolved from a lawn care business founded by Arnold A. Apgar in 1976, and grew with a 7 acre field initiated by his son, John H. Apgar. John graduated from the University of Delaware in 1978 from the College of Agriculture with a degree in plant science, landscape and turf management. This family run business now has three generations working side by side. So you can be sure that we know grass!
The business has grown to where we are producing approximately 100 acres of sod. The business was established because there was a need for quality sod that was not being met, so we decided to grow our own. We are members of Turf Producers International, as well as the Delaware Nursery and Landscape Association. We are also proud members of the National Federation of Independent Business.
With over 40 years of experience, we pride ourselves on our sod, our dependability, reliability, consistent service and quality of work. We wouldn’t sell sod to our customers if we wouldn’t install and use it ourselves.
Baker’s Power & Turf is a division of Baker’s Hardware CO INC., which was started in 1962 by brother Vernon & Leon Baker at its current location in Millsboro. Originally the building was shared with Art’s TV, however a few years later that business closed and Vernon assumed full ownership. Throughout the coming years the hardware store business grew, expanded several times, and became known throughout the region as a destination for customer service and product selection. In 1978 Baker’s entered the power equipment business selling small riding and walk mowers, Homelite chainsaws, and Yazoo mowers. The business entered the 1990’s with a second family generation ownership in place with Bob & Teresa (Baker) Ricker. A second Hardware store in Long Neck DE was opened, and then in 2000 a third location in Georgetown DE. The Georgetown location was closed a year later to focus on the Millsboro location, where the Power & Turf division grew by leaps and bounds. And today is know as the Mid-Atlantics fastest growing outdoor power equipment dealership. In 2009 Baker’s became one of the country’s top 10 Husqvarna dealerships. Baker’s is committed to staying a progressive family owened business with customer service and product selection being our number one focus. 2012 we are celebrating 50 years in business.

The moment you step on a TurfHound Tee Surface, you can feel the amazing difference compared to a conventional golf mat. It’s just like you’re standing on natural turf. Swing a club, hit a ball and the sensation continues. There’s no club-head bounce as you swing down and through the ball. No painful shocks to your wrists, elbows and shoulders. You can drive off your own tee set at any height. Or use your irons and work on all parts of your short game, just as you would off healthy natural turf – the only difference you’ll notice is there’s no divot to replace!
TurfHound is in a league of its own providing the same swing mechanics, ball response and shot results as hitting from fairways or rough on natural turf. TurfHound produces the most realistic, versatile and durable synthetic golf surfaces in the world base on our patented Active Foam Technology. It feels like and plays like you’re standing on natural turf. Swing a club, hit a ball and the sensation continues.
Available as individual Tee Stations, on-course Tee Boxes, and continuous Tee Lines, the secret of the TurfHound surface is the combination of its proprietary foam core, embedded in a unique urethane blend, covered with the finest grass layer available. TurfHound surfaces accurately simulate the feel and performance of healthy natural turf. While ordinary golf mats focus their attention on the hitting surface, TurfHound’s creators have replicated the physical dynamics and response of natural turf embodied in the top 1/4″ to 1/2″ of soil. You can practice your swing again and again on a TurfHound surface, then step onto the fairway and enjoy the same swing dynamics on natural turf. As many pros will tell you, TurfHound surfaces are by far the most authentic representation of natural, healthy turf they’ve ever hit from.
This enthusiastic response to TurfHound since its launch has resulted in installations at prestigious courses around the nation including Pebble Beach Golf Link in California, Royal Montreal Golf Club in Quebec, Bay Hill Country Club in Florida, Baltusrol Country Club in New Jersey, North Fork Country Club in New York, Wade Hampton Golf Club in North Carolina, Aronimink Golf Club in Pennsylvania, Woodmont Country Club in Maryland, Bellerive Country Club in Missouri, Colonial Golf Course in (FW) Texas, Boston Golf Club in Massachusetts, Merion Golf Club in Pennsylvania, and The Country Club in Ohio.
