Jaworski Golf Grows Again. Brigantine Links Losses Still Unknown.

Some Brigantine leadership publicly dragged JAWORSKI GOLF through the mud and then said ‘no thanks…..we got this covered’. 

Could they be having second thoughts about blowing off a deal with JAWS?

Today, as unknown losses mount at The Links, Brigantine is watching from the sidelines as Jaworski Golf keeps expanding it’s successful South Jersey portfolio of courses and country clubs.

The Links at Brigantine Golf is losing approx. $400,000 per year. Financials not shared with taxpayers.

Recently, JAWS acquired Ramblewood Country Club in Mount Laurel, New Jersey.

For years, the Brigantine Taxpayers Association has asked City for detailed ‘Links at Brigantine Golf’ profit & loss statement. Recently, City Manager Stinson has been asked to provide details on the deliverables that Ron E. Jackson of Meadowbrook Golf provides for a $9,000 monthly payment sent to his Florida based LLC. Paperwork for City’s responsibility concerning Mad Dog Morgan’s use of liquor licence at Links Golf Course has also been difficult to gain access to.   

Former Philadelphia Eagles QB, local legend, and expert golf management exec, Jaworski knows how to turn-around struggling courses. He makes em’ profitable by using a mix of smart marketing, investment and the leveraging economies of scale that come from owning multiple properties in a defined region.

Jaworski has an excellent record of turning around struggling golf courses. Brigantine needed his help.

Ramblewood becomes the seventh course. Ron Jaworski Golf also owns Blue Heron Pines Golf Club in Galloway Township, RiverWinds Golf & Tennis Club in West Deptford, Running Deer Golf Club in Pittsgrove, and Valleybrook Country Club in Blackwood, all in New Jersey, as well as Downingtown Country Club and Honey Run Golf Club, both in Pennsylvania.

  1. I hope Jaws tells the good old boys of Brigantine to kiss his a.. and that ship has sailed..Let’s pay the sham corp in Florida for another year or two….

    Its time for change on Fantasy Island, the kind of change brought on by a Federal Investigation…….It’s all a big joke right guys ? Not assessing the million+ homes at market value, which would easily raise tax revenues, the continued hiring municipal employees, increased salaries/benefits, and justifying existing school staffing levels when the year round population decreased at least 25% over the last 3 years.

    Best of all – Promote a top cop and fireman, who know their resigning the day they can get 67% of the “chief’s” salary for the rest of their lives…On top of receiving excessive accrued sick and vacation payments. . They both should be commended for their integrity and ethical standards. Its clear you want to set a great example for your remaining peers.

    Federal lockup isn’t that bad…just ask Vince Fumo……

  2. I am confused at the comment with regards to assessment of Million dollar homes. We pay over $24,000/year in taxes for our 2nd home. Those numbers have increased every year. HOW MUCH would you like our taxes raised? We cannot sell our home for anywhere near the assessed value. We are going broke. We are just regular hard-working people that saved for a lifetime.

    I agree with your other statements. Corruption is alive and well and living on the Island of Brigantine.

  3. TO – 70%R – Clarification of $1 million+ homes under assessed from a real estate tax standpoint –

    1. First of all if your home isn’t worth anywhere near the assessed value, call a real estate tax attorney to file an appeal with Atlantic County and get the assessment lowered to its actual value. They work on a contingency basis and we paid about $300 for the work. I can’t believe you haven’t done this already if you truly believe your home is worth less than the assessed value. It’s a no brainer.

    2. As we all know, homes now being built on the island are all huge with price tags well over a $1 million. However, based on a simple comparison of homes sales over the last 12 months vs. assessed values, which is available on Brigantine’s web site under tax collections, homes that sold for over $1 million are assessed at ~40 to 45% of the sale prices. This is a huge source of revenue being lost in a town that is broke. Do you think this goes on in Avalon or Stone Harbor?

    3. Before you respond, let me take it a step further, we looked at home sales from $200K to $450K and found these homes were assessed at close to 90% of the sale prices, which means the folks that own fairly modest homes are paying more real estate taxes than the higher value homes that becoming the norm on the island. I thought the entire island was reassessed to fair market value in Dec-13? Vital Communications couldn’t find comps on big homes so they went low?

    Take a look at the following properties for currently for sale (say they sold for ½ the asking price) then look up the assessed value – do the math – the tax rate is 1.773%. You might recognize names as well.

    I’m a second home owner as well. I pay $12K on my primary 2,300 sq ft (NJ) Residence and another $4.5K on my Brig Condo (maybe 1,200 to 1,400 sq ft). My wife and I have work hard our lives as well. The beach house is for the kids. . However we work in Corporate America where there is no such thing as Contracts, Pensions, or Health Benefits, and Lawsuits when we retire. We can be laid or fired at anytime. .

  4. Hey 70%R,

    Did you internet go down or just don’t have a response to my comments? Is your house over assessed or is $25K the acceptable limit (max R.E. taxes per yr) that every $1 million+ home owner on the island is willing to accept ?

    You are as bad as the real estate brokers/agents and local good old boys with their hands in the till.. The real estate community doesn’t want increased taxes on the big giant homes because they’ll lose easy commissions… No one cares about the long game on the island….Because everyone with skin in the game is cashing out as soon as they can….

    That’s the problem people….no one cares about Brigantine’s long term interests….Not public officials, city council members, no one… its a sad state of affairs . ….

    I CAN ASSURE EVERYONE WHO READ THIS….THE ISSUE REGARDING UNDER ASSESSMENT OF HOMES VALUED AT $1+ MILLION WILL NOT GO AWAY… IF THESE HOMES WERE FAIRLY ASSESSED, THE BUDGET SHORTFALL WOULD DISAPPEAR…AND ALL WOULD BE GOOD … WHY ARE THE ELECTED OFFICIALS RUNNING FANTASY ISLAND NOT ACKNOWLEDGING THIS ??? WAKE UP PEOPLE…….
