Ken Rosenberg

Ken Rosenberg worked at the Haliburton Highlands Golf Course overlooking Lake Kashagawigamog from the age of ten. When his greenskeeper duties were done, he practiced the game. With lots of hillside lies and rocky outcroppings, the course proved to be an excellent challenge for the young golfer.

For over 70 years, Ken has competed in tournaments throughout Ontario at championship levels, with amateur and professional players. He acquired his teaching certificate from the Canadian Golf Teachers Association, leading the field of all contestants who were hoping to qualify. Ken has accumulated record-setting scores at every golf course in Haliburton County and he has had 18 witnessed holes in one. More astounding is the fact that he is one of the few individuals in the history of the game to make two holes in one in a single 18-hole round. The odds of that achievement are incredible, an achievement so rare it has happened only three times on the PGA tour.

As a builder, Ken Rosenberg has dedicated countless hours to helping hundreds of golfers, from beginners to experts, to improve their games. Affectionately known as the golf doctor, he is widely recognized as an insightful instructor and an encouraging coach. He is known to uphold the true values of sport: commitment, character and honesty. Most important, he respects players of all abilities, and makes the game fun.

As an ambassador for his sport, Ken Rosenberg has shared his passion and enjoyment of a life on the links, mentoring three generations of young golfers and promoting golf in the Haliburton Highlands for seven decades.
