There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. There are different kinds of working, but in all of them and in everyone it is the same God at work. - 1 Corinthians 12:5-6

In the last 14 years, Coach Geldhof has led the Eagles in becoming one of Kentucky’s premier high school golf programs energizing the student body and creating an excellent reputation for golfers in the school.

In the classroom, the men's golf team has placed 69 players on the KHSAA All-State Academic Team with 27 other players named to the KHSAA Honorable Mention Team. All of his players are active in the Lexington community, volunteering their time at camps and helping host athletic department sponsored events for local children.
