Boys Varsity Golf · Introducing the New Head Golf Coach for Sierra High School


The Sierra High School Athletic Department is proud to introduce the next Head Boys Golf Coach, Mr. Elton Kirkwood.

Mr. Kirkwood has given many private lessons and assisted at clinics that taught all age groups many aspects of golf. He has developed a loyal and dedicated following of golfers that have achieved tremendous results under his tutelage. Elton is also a competent instructor that will be able to help any golfer achieve their goals. Over the years, Mr. Kirkwood has coached baseball, basketball, tennis, and golf.

He believes that whenever you are working with young people, you must build a culture of trust and respect. He believes that high school golf coaches have a golden opportunity to have a tremendous impact on student-athletes in their formative years. He desires to see high school golf elevated to new levels and to help students see it as a microcosm for real life.

He cares about his students as people. He desires to show student-athletes what life is about beyond high school and college. Mr. Kirkwood emphasizes three things in his program: 1.) Teamwork, 2.) Leadership, 3.) Relationship.

Anyone interested in joining the Golf team this year can reach out to Coach Kirkwood at ekirkwood@hsd2.org or the Atheltic Director Robert Bentley at rbentley@hsd2.org.
