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.

Via NorthJersey.com: The 18-hole semiprivate course in Franklin Lakes is scheduled to close within a few weeks… The fate of High Mountain, which opened in 1966, is part of a growing nationwide trend of course closings, and it isn’t the only Bergen County club to be shutting down this decade. Apple Ridge Country Club in Mahwah and Upper Saddle River was sold in June. Like High Mountain, plans call for the private 18-hole course, which also opened in 1966, to close in several years and be replaced by residences.

February 19, 2014 in News by thestarter

New Jersey’s Stockton Seaview Hotel & Golf Club course renovation: Stockton Seaview Hotel & Golf Club – A Dolce Resort, a Troon Golf-managed facility and one of the premier resort destinations in the Northeast, will soon tee-off a new era of golf excellence when a renovation to the famed Bay Course is completed on April 1 for the start of the 2014 golf season…. Highlighting the Bay Course renovation are new tee boxes on the fourth, fifth, 10th and 12th holes, which will add 150 yards in overall length to the golf course. Also, the creation of a new bunker complex between the fourth and fifth holes will further enhance the playing experience from the new back tee on hole number five… Additional course refinements include the rebuilding of all existing tee boxes and tee surfaces on the Bay Course to create a better, more consistent playing surface for golfers; new GPS units in the golf carts; completely redesigned tee signs, markers and in-ground tee & fairway yardage plates; and new retro wooden bunker rakes and pin flags.
