Ron Jaworski Being Sued For Fraudulent Misrepresentation

Thursday, September 18, 2008


No, it's not for comparing every quarterback in the NFL to Brett Favre, it's actually an existing matter from one of his other business ventures. Ron Jaworski has a ton of non-Football related ventures and one of those is apparently called Ron Jaworski Golf Management. Well, the owner of Running Deer Golf Club in Elmer, New Jersey is taking Jaws to court and claiming that the MNF analyst deceived him and forced the club into bankruptcy. From NJ.com....

The suit depicts how the Monday Night Football broadcaster and motivational speaker convinced Carman in early 2008 "that he would never do anything to hurt (them)" and allow his family to continue operating the club.

"Jaworski intended (Carman) rely on representations of his good intentions," according to Greiner. "Carman believed that he was dealing with a future partner rather than someone hostile to his interests."

Greiner said Jaworski offered at first to either enter into a near equal partnership so Carman could continue operating the club, or purchase the mortgage and resell it to Carman for a small profit. Jaworski, 57, the CEO of Ron Jaworski Golf Management of Blackwood, apparently reneged on his offer, instead opting for outright control by seeking to buy the mortgage from Sterling Bank for $3 million and make an unreachable proposal to Carman, according to the suit.

The mortgage package included the course and the Carman home, Greiner said.
Wow. Now I know that someone with a handful of small businesses like Jaws often runs problems of this nature, but that reads pretty bad for the analyst. Hopefully it was just a misunderstanding and that Jaworski wasn't trying to snake his way to steal a man's livelihood and home. If any of you lawyers out there want to weigh-in, feel free to do so in the comments.

I am a member at this golf course. The owner hasn't paid a bill for 3 years, has lost most of his memebership because he can't afford to maintain this place, and has no idea how to run a business. The owner tried to get the members to put up the $3.5M for him to buy the note from Jaws, but most of us balked at the idea. When I joined a few years back, this place was ranked #16 in the state. Today, its such an embarrassment I won't even take family there to play... You can't even by a sleeve of golf balls in the pro shop!!! I like the Carmen's, they are nice people, but this suit has no merit and is probably just a tactic to try and keep his house.

I know the Carmens and what has happened here is the sleeziest thing I have ever heard. Ron J. lied to them in order to obtain private information and then disappeared and wouldn't take calls. He is a total PUSSY! With all his money, it is shameful that he has to resort to lying and stealing to get what he wants. I don't know how he sleeps at night. Karma is a powerfull thing....
P.S. Ed Carmen is a genius. He designed and built this course and one other. Any hard core golfer I have ever spoken to says the course design is phenomenal. Ron really stole himself a diamond here..

Just an observation. This has nothing to do with the situation in this blog but I played a Jaworski course in May. I know it has been a while since then and many things can happen but the course located in Southern Ohio was in such horrible shape. The course was named The Plantation. Through conversation with one of the managers while trying to get some money back for a large outing we were having there the manager stated that the course without an infusion of cash would be closing shortly. I dont know how this can relate to this situation but just take it for what it is worth.

i too am a member of running deer, and it is true that the course has been in bad shape in the past. that said the membership is comprised mostly of hard core golfers who recognize and embrace the challenge that is running deer. the carmens are wonderful people who took a chance that didn't work out. if jaws can improve conditions,great,

I am also a member of Running Deer. The Carmens are very nice people and what Ed has created is one of the best courses in SJ. We all feel sorry for the family. However, it appears that he was to stubborn for his own good. He was under capitalized and waited too long to ask for help. This place should have been an equity club several years ago. If Jaws, screws this place up his business name in the golf industry will be nothing. The fact that he is attaching his name to the club should say something about his commitment to making RD what it once was and even better. One can only hope, and also hope he doesn't screw us with a huge dues increase.

I too am a member of RD and I totally thrilled that Ron purchased this property. What was once a beautiful facility and course has been falling apart for years. Ed Carman has not paid his mortgage for three years, taxes, has fines on him not following building codes and just thumbing his nose at the laws and doing what he wanted out there until it just became huge mess. Ed has known that this was in the works for a very long time. It is NOT at all Ron's fault that Ed was a not a skilled business person. I can't wait until Ron has been able to get in there and get it up to snuff and get that place back in shape so that we can enjoy the beauty of that location.

The Course was created and built by the Carmans. Bob King, of Sterling Bank had no regard for the Carmans toils when they peddled the mortgage to Jaworski. The Carmans wanted to payoff the mortgage. King didn't want it to happen. Jaworski stole an 8 million dollar property for 3 million and Bob King, along with a rigged bankrupcy court, infleunced by Ira Luberts money, gave the course to Jaworski. The fact is the course was in the best shape its been in since it opened in 2000 before LJK stole it. Regardless of whether you like the Carmans or not, they had the right to determine their own destiny with what they invested in and created.Period.Jaworski will be exsposed for the fraud he is and watch him ruin Running Deer as he has all the other courses he has been involved with. He will be haunted by the unethical and greedy way he stole a families creation and livelihood. Watch.

Very nice family but I agree Ed's stubborness attributed to the courses demise. Ed set this place up to be one of the most pretentious places in South Jersey. I worry for the family but who wraps up their home loan with the business? That comes right from bad business 101.
