    "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."

    "Both my son and I are Operation 36 students. The Ladies program gives me an opportunity to learn golf in a fun and supportive setting. The small group lessons gives me the instruction needed to be successful and confident on the course."

  • Coach testimonial image
    "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."

  • Dad testimonial image
    "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."
