Ron Jaworski Golf Acquires Downingtown Country Club

DOWNINGTOWN, Pa., April 24, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ron Jaworski Golf (RJG), along with partners Ken Kochenour, Ira Lubert and Joe Williamson, has acquired Downingtown Country Club in Downingtown, PA.  Downingtown joins five other courses owned and operated by Ron Jaworski Golf (RJG) - Blue Heron Pines Golf Club in Galloway Township, NJ, Honey Run Golf Club in York, PA, River Winds Golf & Tennis Club in West Deptford, NJ, Running Deer Golf Club in Pittsgrove, NJ, and Valleybrook Country Club in Blackwood, NJ.  

Located in Chester County, Downingtown Country Club's layout reflects many of the great features of classic Philadelphia-area golf courses. With subtle greens, strategically placed bunkers, and gently rolling fairways, the scenic course is a straightforward, fair test of golf, sure to please players of all ability levels from beginner to expert. Course conditioning has been maintained at the highest standards.

The 6,619 yard, par-72 golf course was designed by George Fazio and built between 1965 and 1967.  Fazio, the uncle of modern course architect Tom Fazio, was a runner-up to Ben Hogan in the 1950 U.S. Open at Merion Golf Club, and the touring professional out of Pine Valley Golf Club for a number of years.

Besides the championship caliber golf course, Downingtown Country Club is also a popular and highly acclaimed venue for weddings, banquets and dining. Winner of Wedding Wire's Brides Choice 2013 and Couples' Choice 2014 and 2015, the Downingtown Country Club commitment to superior service ensures that all wedding receptions surpass even the greatest of expectations. A venue accommodating up to 300 guests is perfect for both social and corporate events, with the picturesque and well-maintained golf course providing a perfect backdrop for pictures, as well as beautiful views from the ballroom and covered patio. The Club's Seasons 18 restaurant features pub style fare and hosts live entertainment on Friday nights. Seasons 18 is also home to holiday special events, like the upcoming Mother's Day Brunch.

Ken Kochenour is founder of GF Management, which will be working side by side with RJG in the management of the award winning event space and restaurant. GF Management is a Philadelphia based company with more than 25 years of experience operating hotels, resorts and banquet facilities.

"We are very proud to add Downingtown to our outstanding collection of courses under the Ron Jaworski Golf umbrella," said Ron Jaworski. "We invite all golfers to experience the golf course and take advantage of the many affordable membership and daily fee options available.
