Jim McLean and other instructors along with some PGA Pros.
Gary's knowledge of the golf swing is as good as I have ever had."

Bernie Nicholls   -Retired NHL Stanley Cup Champion

"I have taken many golf lessons with Gary and will continue to go back, do not want the bad habits to return. He is very accepting and positive of where you are and need to go with your swing. It is a fun and welcoming place to learn.  "Linda B -Retired

“I've had the pleasure of working with Gary for about twenty years and continue to work with him on my game. He helped introduce my daughters to golf and he has worked with me through a deteriorating hip and then post hip replacement to help keep me an improving single digit handicap player. I have recommended Gary to many of my friends and colleagues over the years and would recommend him to anyone serious about improving and understanding the game.” - Bob Marrs - Retired
“Thanks for the great lesson today! I can’t believe what a difference it made to my game today. I haven’t made contact like this in a while--I guess it is all in the hips. I shot even par on the back 9. YOU’RE THE MAN!!!! ” - Jeff King - Professional Musician
“Gary is calm, confident and consistent in his instruction. I know that the reason for my improvement in the game is because of the thorough analysis of my swing and corrections made by Gary during the lessons. Thank you.” - Nancy Missouri, Vice Principal (Secondary School)
“My name is Mark Young and I would like to share with you the wonderful learning experience I had recently with Gary Kent. I have to preface this with some personal background. I use to train and race competitively in Triathlons and in so doing was fortunate to have been coached by some wonderfully technical and gifted coaches. I also coached Ironman triathletes for 5 years. Because of these training and coaching experiences I believe I have a good understanding of what makes a good coach. One of the keys to coaching is to know enough about the technical aspects of a sporting activity to be able to see a series of flaws in the movement and know that by changing only one aspect of the movement several flaws can be corrected. The second and equally important aspect of coaching is communication. It is important for a coach to be able to listen as well as they speak. It is also critical to be able to deliver a message clearly and in a way the student will understand. In my opinion, Gary Kent has the both the technical knowledge and communication skills to deliver a well thought out message to his students in an efficient, clear and enjoyable fashion. I would recommend Gary to anyone who is looking to improve their golf game. He keeps it light and at the same time educational!” - Mark Young
“I've taken Gary’s Break 80 clinic over the past two years, and I’ve seen my handicap drop from low 20’s to single digit by the end of last summer. Gary instructs every student according to his/her own needs (i.e. not a “cookie cutter” approach) and I’ve learned a ton about every aspect of my swing as well as the game. He keeps things fun but at the same time he’s very informative, and I look forward to continue to study with him!” - Tom Tischler - Musician/Teacher
“Played my first game with my new backswing!! Had my best game ever at Spring Lakes, even in this heat! My drives were at least twenty yards longer. Was able to reach the green in regulation on quite a few holes. I’ll keep working on the technique with my woods, and maybe it will naturally come with the irons. Many thanks.” - Judy Grandin

"I have had lessons from the likes of Hank Haney, Butch Harmon, Jim McLean and other instructors along with some PGA pros. I can honestly say Gary works as hard and takes his time with each and every student no matter their level, beginner or scratch player. His knowledge of the golf swing is as good as any I have ever had."



"We are so lucky to have a Certified Golf Instructor in the Haliburton area now. Normally have to drive miles and miles for any golf swing coaching."
