Bill Marozsan, 1st Assistant Superintendent
I was born in Elyria on a record cold day in March of 1960. I now live in Carlisle Township. I graduated from Midview High School. I am happily married to my wife Polly for 20 years. We met on a blind date. We have a son Zack who was born in 1992. He is a busy-body. I worked at the Oberlin Golf Club in the summer of 1975 and in 1976. I worked in some factories in the early 80’s, but found the outdoors was the way to go. I started working full time here at Oberlin in 1982 under Frank Stydnicki, then Mike O’Donnell, followed by Jim Thompson, and now Thom Martinek. I have learned a lot from all of the superintendents that I have worked for in my 26 years here at Oberlin. I am also a sports collector and an avid autograph seeker.

I started work here at the Oberlin Golf Club in 1984. I was married in October of 1999 to my wife Tonya, and I have a stepson. I enjoy reading about military history and my outside activities with my stepson Todd, and our family dog. Working at the Oberlin Golf Club has been a very fun and educational experience, which has kept me very busy and happy.
