  • "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."
    Steve Uhorchak
    Operation 36 Parent
  • "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."
    Michelle Denning
    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."
    Stephen Eastman
    Operation 36 Parent

The Operation 36 App

The Op 36 Mobile App is your guide that makes getting better fun!

You and your family can...

Play golf and track your journey

The first step to improving is to play golf! Follow the on-course GPS to find your Op 36 tee-box and track your stats with the Play Feature.

View curriculum and goals

Goals are like guard rails in your golf development. Say goodbye to lesson notes. Throughout the program, coaches can issue a video goal, review it, and complete it as you develop.

Train your skills

Not sure what or how to practice at the course? Follow a series of drills that are tailored to make it fun to improve your skills that will lead to lower scores.

Achieve milestones and level up!

Every action you take to improve your game levels up your skills on your profile. Accomplish milestones and earn your training community points in the Op 36 Global Challenge!

Connect with your coach and community

View your friends in the program and training community. Give them a "golf clap" and encourage them on their journey.
Your coach can...

Track your progress over time

Your golf journey is shared with your coach. If you ever feel lost in your development they can easily help set goals and guide you.

Run reports to guide you

The Op 36 Coach Reports allow your coach to give you the latest insight into your game. Parents of juniors can also see their juniors journey and development.

Issue goals and practice plans

Coaches can easily issue golfers' video goals either prior to joining a program or after a lesson. Coaches can also help guide your training with practice plans.

Prepare program lesson plans

We believe every class you attend should be engaging and efficient. Our network shares best practices, drills, activities, to ensure every golfer is getting the best.
