The 24-member Blue Devils Golf Team recently received an unexpected gift - a brand new bag for each golfer this season - thanks to a generous donation by Mizuno Golf.
When the season started a few weeks ago Chris Hall, the school's golf coach, began looking into the cost of getting bags for the school's two dozen players.
But even discounted, the bags would be around $100 a pop he estimated. He had a contact at the Mizuno Golf manufacturing plant in Peachtree Corners, Curtis Brown, and decided to place a call.
"I called him and said 'I'd really like to get bags for the team, can we work out a deal?'" Hall remembers.
Brown, who has a daughter attending NHS, did better than that - he arranged to have Mizuno donate 26 brand new golf bags to the team.
"The company has always helped us out with football equipment," said Hall. "I was hoping for an account, I didn't expect a donation. We are proud to have them. I think the kids are excited."
The bags, which are black, gray and white, are being monogrammed with the letters NHS thanks to Linda Gilson's who owns a monogramming business in Peachtree Corners called "Mostly Me."
The high school golf season has just gotten underway for the 14 boys and 10 girls who play on the NHS team and practice at Berkeley Hills Country Club.
Last week the team got a tour of the Mizuno plant courtesy of Brown and his staff.
