How would Operation 36 work at my golf facility?

Running Operation 36 is as simple as running weekly clinics and a 9 hole league together. The only difference is there is a fun, holistic, and trackable development plan for your golfers.

1. Participants Attend a Weekly 1 Hour Class & work through the 6 Level Curriculum

Very similar to subjects in school, one or two of these skills is covered in class each week. The skills each have an educational goal to work towards that challenge golfers to work on developing their game. These Skills and Goals are guides in golfers development.
At the core of Operation 36 are the structured weekly classes.  Each class consists of fun training activities and an Education Block where your team will teach a skill or concept from the Op 36 Curriculum
Digital lesson plans are done and in your pocket for every class
Golfers earn badges as they progress through 6 level curriculum
Over 100+ group training games & educational activities

Getting beginners on the course has never been easier.  All golfers start in Division 1 and follow the Op 36 Model. The scaled course and automated goals gets them around the golf course in a timely and motivating way.  
Complete beginners will play 9 holes in less than 2 hours
The 9-Hole Events are fun, social, and encouraging format

I joined the Op 36 community in January of 2018 specifically to improve my junior golf program, but Op 36 has done so much more for my business than just junior golf. It has also enhanced my adult group classes. Op 36 is the “EASY” button for any golf pro wanting to elevate their programs.

Operation 36 is a complete game changer! We went from 35 juniors 3 years ago to 109 in summer 2020! It is the most thorough and focused program I have seen. Golfers love how dynamic the learning is and absolutely love the playing component! I am lucky to be a part of such a great program!

Parents are looking for a completed junior program that develops their kids into life-long golfers. Offering season long structured programs gives parents the confidence that you are providing their junior with the best instruction available.


Learning a new sport is an overwhelming and scary idea for most beginners. Our most successful adult programs break down this barrier by offering their programs with groups of friends that can learn together, and also groups of the same skill level.

Since we joined the Operation 36 network in early 2017, it has revolutionized our player development program and the atmosphere of our entire Club. We've been able to "check all of the boxes" of our Board's goals for Club operations, in large part due to our Academy and the golf program. We've grown our membership, lowered our average age, increased site visits, enhanced food & beverage sales, and more importantly; improved the quality of life for over 100 families in our community.

When your students sign up they get access to the Operation 36 App and have all the tools to guide them in and outside of classes.  You as a coach can see each players profile.  It creates a social coaching hub for you to track their development, golf activity, and communicate during your season.
