Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco buys New Jersey golf course with ESPN analyst Ron Jaworski

When you're in the middle of a six-year, $120 million contract, you can afford things most of us can't -- unless we hit Powerball -- like a golf course.

Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco, recovering from December knee surgery, is part of a group headed by ESPN pro football analyst Ron Jaworski that just bought Ramblewood Country Club in Mount Laurel, N.J.

Jaworski, a former Philadelphia Eagles quarterback, is owner of Ron Jaworski Golf Management Inc., which owns seven courses, five in New Jersey and two in Pennsylvania, according to a news release on his website. In adding the 27-hole course to his portfolio, Jaworski said his group would spend $2 million to renovate the clubhouse and banquet rooms, which had been shut down, the release said.
Flacco is an avid golfer who co-hosted the Special Olympics Golf Tournament with tight end Dennis Pitta last year. Ramblewood is less than a half hour from Philadelphia and is near Audubon, N.J., where Flacco grew up. A call to Flacco's agent, Joe Linta, was not answered today.
Jaworski, also an avid golfer, now owns the following courses: Blue Heron Pines Golf Club in Galloway Township, N.J.; Downingtown Country Club in Downingtown, Pa.; Honey Run Golf Club in York, Pa.; RiverWinds Golf & Tennis Club in West Deptford, N.J.; Running Deer Golf Club in Pittsgrove, N.J.; Valleybrook Country Club in Blackwood, N.J.; and Ramblewood.
Honey Run is closest to Baltimore, located just over the state line outside of York, Pa.
