We want beginners to have a complete program. That is why we center the program around playing golf with the Operation 36 Development Model. Our community goal is to help you shoot par (36) or better for 9 holes!
Learning to Play Golf the Operation 36 Model:
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.
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.
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."
Operation 36 blends together playing golf (with the Op 36 Format) with educational weekly classes or camps to learn and develop golf skills. Players also have clear goals & technology to help guide them.

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.
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.
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!

"We have found the structure of Operation 36 to be very good for our child's development in all areas on and off the golf course. The matches provide a motivating way for the kids to test their skills, and teach perseverance when they hit a challenging yardage."

Op 36 Parent & Adult Participant
"I absolutely love the program. It has been a huge success with my programs. What’s the coolest part is it can be used for everyone. Our ladies group loves it."
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. This gives kids the feeling of success by shooting lower scores than if they tried learning from the family tees."
