Learning to Play Golf with Operation 36

We want beginners to have a complete program. That is why we center the program around playing golf with the Operation 36 Format. Our community goal is to help you shoot par (36) or better for 9 holes!

Learning to Play Golf the Operation 36 Format:

1

Golfers Play 9 Holes From Division 1 (25 Yards)

Instead of starting at the full tee box, all golfers begin in Division 1 and will play 9 holes starting 25 yards from each green.

2

Shoot par (36) or better to pass Division

If they shoot par (36) or better, the golfer progresses to Division 2, where they start 50 yards from each green.

3

Complete the Division 10 challenge

This challenge continues until the golfer can shoot par (36)from all 10 divisions!
"Operation 36 is just a way better structured program. The progression through the yardages and being play-based, everything is focused around playing golf."
Will McGirt
PGA Tour Winner & Op 36 Parent

The Operation 36 On-Course Format gives purpose to any coaching program. 

It's Play Centered

Golfers actually play a full 9 holes on the course. Most programs shy's away from getting on the course.

It's Timely

A brand new golfer can finish playing 9 holes in under 1.5 hours and will never hold up other groups.

It's Motivating

Goals are achievable and based off of a golfer's skill level.  This allows them to feel success from day 1.

It's Measurable

Golfers can see their progress and have a long-term plan for improvement.

Who is Operation 36 For?

The core of Operation 36 was to design a program that would be motivating for any skill level of golfer.  Our goal based approach it works for all. However, we believe beginners shouldn't learn any other way!

Juniors and Parents

Golf is the #1 sport that will instill life lessons for your junior(s). It is also the only one that your entire family can participate in. We believe juniors should have a fun road-map and parents should be educated every step of the way.

Adults

If you have never played golf but are thinking of learning, it is not as hard as you think. Golf is a challenging but rewarding sport. The connections you can make professionally and with your family will last a lifetime.

Existing Golfers

You have a score you have been used to shooting for a long time. To break through that barrier, it takes a program that can identify your weakness and give you a plan for improvement. Talk with your local Op 36 coach today!

    Meredith Loose, LPGA & PGA
    Operation 36 Coach
  • "Our son loves the group practices with friends and thrives on the instruction provided by his coach. We really like how the matches are conducted - starting at 25 yards and then moving farther away.
