Thomas Vorio is a dedicated professional with the drive and knowledge required to succeed in the turf industry. His commitment to sustainability for landscape maintenance is cutting-edge and showcases how effective the conditioning results can be if managed by talent such as Tom. In addition, his knowledge in landscape construction and design rounds out his role as an all-encompassing property manager.
In this highly competitive industry, Tom was rewarded at a young age to be in charge of his own course as Golf Course Superintendent of Oak Hills Park. Coming there as an Assistant, the head position opened up and the club took a chance on a young talent. Tom has since turned that opportunity into a burgeoning career, and has transformed Oak Hills Park into a quality daily-fee course that attains a heavy amount of rounds each season and is now noted for its great turf conditions.
In addition to his seven years spent at Oak Hills Park Golf Course, he also has experience at several other facilities, including Pine Orchard Yacht & Country Club and Orange Hills Country Club, both also in Connecticut. With years of on-course experience and leadership in management, Tom has ventured on his own to serve as an agronomic consultant to the golf, sports turf, and landscape maintenance industries. Committed to each client and with a focus toward sustainability, Tom offers a unique and fresh approach that can bring excellent results to all clients.
