Creekside High School is thrilled to announce that Steven McNickle will be the new head coach of the Lady Knights Golf Team! 

Coach McNickle developed a passion for golf in high school. After a brief moment in college football, he dedicated himself to play golf competitively in area amateur events over the years. He was the first golf coach for the combined Patriot Oaks Academy and Valley Ridge Academy golf teams, where he created a successful model that taught the skills of the short game, putting, and chipping. Coach McNickle also coordinated and co-conducted programs and clinics to work with up and coming players. He prides himself on developing within players the ability to focus on the moment while creating a lifelong joy for the game. “My goal is to be a positive mentor, leader, and role model for our youth.”
