Excitement builds at Jaguars' home golf course

The Forest Hills Golf Course clubhouse has been buzzing this week as Augusta State University's men's golf team tries to win back-to-back national championships.

"People poke their head in and ask how ASU's doing," said Brad Ramsbotham, who works in the clubhouse at the Jaguars' home course.

More than a dozen people were in and out Friday afternoon checking on the team's score at the NCAA Division I Golf Championship in Stillwater, Okla.

Golf Course Superintendent Darren Davenport wore a 2010 national championship commemorative baseball cap Friday, as he does most days at work.

"It's still just as exciting as it was last year," Davenport said. "It will be a bigger accomplishment if they do it again."

Forest Hills sells 2010 national title T-shirts and the commemorative Coca-Cola bottles released in April.
