Latest acquisition gives Ex-NFL
quarterback seven great courses
Jan. 13, 2016
Ron Jaworski Golf (RJG), along with partners Ken Kochenour, Ira Lubert, and Peter Slack, has acquired Ramblewood Country Club in Mount Laurel, NJ. Also among the partners is Super Bowl winning quarterback Joe Flacco of the Baltimore Ravens. Flacco is a native of Audubon, NJ.
Ramblewood becomes the seventh course owned and operated by Ron Jaworski Golf (RJG) - Blue Heron Pines Golf Club in Galloway Township, NJ; Downingtown Country Club in Downingtown, PA; Honey Run Golf Club in York, PA; RiverWinds Golf & Tennis Club in West Deptford, NJ; Running Deer Golf Club in Pittsgrove, NJ; Valleybrook Country Club in Blackwood, NJ; and Ramblewood.
Conveniently located just off Route 73, one-half mile from Exit 4 of the NJ Turnpike and just 25 minutes from center city Philadelphia, Ramblewood CC features 27 holes of affordable daily fee golf with a variety of membership options. Two of the nines (Red and White) opened in 1962, while the Blue nine opened for play in 1972.
RJG Executive Vice President BJ Jaworski indicated that the golf course will undergo renovations during the first quarter of 2016, including extensive irrigation and drainage work, extensive bunker work and extensive tree work for optimal sunlight and air movement.
"This work will enhance turf conditions and result in consistent, premium playing conditions for our golfers," said Jaworski.
According to Ron Jaworski, the clubhouse will close immediately to make way for extensive renovations, inside and out. The renovations will include new contemporary interiors in the banquet room, entranceway and pre-function area. The outdoor wedding ceremony site will also be redone with new landscaping and a pergola with beautiful vistas of the golf course to create an even more memorable wedding experience.
"The goal of the clubhouse and wedding ceremony site renovations is to elevate Ramblewood CC as the most spectacular golf club and wedding facility in the area," said Ron Jaworski. "We will also be a premier venue for bar and bat mitzvahs, as well as other parties and group functions."
Ramblewood will also be home to a SEVEN Tap & Tavern. SEVEN Tap & Tavern is already a signature at Blue Heron Pines, Running Deer and Downingtown CC. According to RJG President Liz Jaworski, "SEVEN Tap 7 & Tavern is a cool, friendly neighborhood tavern featuring craft beers, an outstanding menu and large screen TVs throughout. It is not your ordinary sports bar."
Ramblewood is also a popular choice for golf outings. And it will become even more appealing in 2016 with the addition of an outdoor tented area, complete with brick grills and TVs for after golf celebrations.
RJG is purchasing the club from the Goodwin family, which had owned the club for more than 50 years. John Goodman, son of former owner Hal Goodwin, will remain as general manager of the club, while Hal Goodwin, grandson of the former owner, will remain as director of golf outing sales.
"We are very proud to add Ramblewood to our outstanding collection of courses under the Ron Jaworski Golf umbrella," said Ron Jaworski. "We invite all golfers to experience the golf course and take advantage of the many affordable membership and daily fee options available.
"We are also very excited to preserve and build upon Ramblewood's reputation as an exceptional wedding, banquet and dining venue," added Jaworski.
