Brandon Nicolhas coached collegiately for 11 years and spent the last six as a head coach. His first experience with PGC was in 1997 at a course directed by Dick and Dave DeVenzio. The PGC experience helped him to ‘SCHAPE’ his attitude, work ethic, goals, leadership, skills and overall outlook which lead him to pursue walking on at Iowa State.

From 1999-2002, Brandon played for Iowa State University where he was a part of two Big 12 Championships and an Elite Eight appearance. He earned the Team Hustle Award in his freshman year, the Brian Pearson Inspiration Award in 2001-2002, and scholar-athlete honors for three seasons. He played his final collegiate season (2002-2003) at Dakota State University and went on to compete with the Kansas City Knights (ABA) in 2004-2005 and the Des Moines Heat (IBL) in summer 2005. He also competed in a fall and overseas tour with Athletes in Action in 2005.

Brandon and his wife Jill have two children, Isaac (7) and Arrabelle (4).
