Apple Ridge County Club holds auction as it nears new future

January 31, 2016 in News by thestarter

Via NorthJersey.com:

Inside the Apple Ridge County Club this week, landscapers and construction workers milled about the scenic atrium where polo-clad golfers once dined and talked shop.

Dressed in camouflage-patterned caps and hardy sweatshirts, they listened intently as an auctioneer rattled off the sundry bits and pieces that kept the club going for nearly five decades. Thom Bishop, a manager at Bowling Green Golf Club of Morris County, looks at golf carts as bidders get a preview of the contents up for auction at the Apple Ridge Country Club.

“What you see is what you get,” the auctioneer, from Englewood Cliffs-based Caspert Auctioneers and Appraisers, repeated constantly as pictures of lawn equipment and tools flashed across a screen above him.

On Thursday, there were rolls of wire, weed wackers, walkie-talkies, nozzles and, of course, golf carts for up bid. An anvil went for $200 — a “good mother-in-law gift,” joked the auctioneer.

The Apple Ridge Country Club formally closed Dec. 31, and its 108 acres straddling Mahwah and Upper Saddle — one of the area’s last open spaces — will in time be the site of 78 single-family homes.

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco buys golf course in New Jersey – Baltimore Ravens Blog- ESPN

January 19, 2016 in News by thestarter

Baltimore Ravens QB Joe Flacco buys golf course in New Jersey – Baltimore Ravens Blog- ESPN: When Joe Flacco would play golf with Ron Jaworski, the Baltimore Ravens quarterback often asked Jaworski about how he got into the golf business. Then, an opportunity came up for Jaworski to purchase Ramblewood Country Club in Mount Laurel, New Jersey, which is a seven-minute drive from Flacco’s home. “I reached out to Joe and said, ‘You’ve always spoken about preparing for life after football and do you have any interest in partnering,'” said Jaworski, who now owns seven golf courses. “It’ll be a good relationship. We’ll have a little sports pub and we’ll have a number of Flacco [No. 5] jerseys.”

With a new owner, big changes are coming to the 50-year-old golf course, including the addition of a Ron Jaworski Golf signature bar and restaurant, Seven Tap & Tavern, and improvements to the clubhouse and course itself.
