The Operation 36 Curriculum
Some training communities leverage the Operation 36 Curriculum to structure their programs for adults and juniors, others build their own! Below is an overview of the standard Operation 36 Curriculum Framework.
Op 36 Matches
Operation 36 Matches challenge golfers to shoot the target score of 36 for 9 holes. The format tests scoring skills first by starting 25 yards from the hole and allows golfers to progress back as their skills develop.
Op 36 Academy Classes
The Op 36 Academy Classes were designed to provide golfers a group coaching environment for you to learn the game, set goals, and develop your skills. Coaches will work through the Operation 36 Curriculum and allow you a chance to test and progress in your rank.
Supervised Practice is a structured training session under the watchful eye of a trained coach. They will help you structure your practice and provide feedback to ensure your training session is as efficient as possible.

Op 36 Ranks & Subjects
The Operation 36 program has a 6 level standardized curriculum that golfers will progress through each week in the academy class or camps. We call each level a Rank. Within each Rank there are 12 Subjects that categorize the area of learning for the class that day. For each Rank there is 1 objective you must be able to demonstrate to your coach. Complete all 12 Objectives and rank up!
Op 36 Progress Tracking
The Op 36 platform has transformed our junior golf program at Carmel. With the long-term program in place combining academy classes, supervised practice, and the Op 36 matches - we are developing golfers who want to stick with the game outside of coming to class. The fact that there is a roadmap laid in front of the junior that will allow them to shoot even par golf makes that goal seem much more achievable. We feel lucky to be a part of the Op 36 team!
Operation 36 is ultimately about finding a golfers challenge point and providing a motivating plan to get better and track progress.
Op 36 is how I wish I learned to play golf.
I feel this is the future of getting golfers started properly in the game.
Op 36 will no doubt be the flagship for family golf programs around the world.
It shows the golfer their goal and how they are going to get there, and allows us to do our job.
If you're looking to create family golf at your facility, this is the way to do it.
I had a mom tell me that Op 36 has transformed her son. Usually he does programs for a week and doesn't want to continue going to class. She said with Op 36, he's excited to show up every week!
I've been meeting with my PGA members, and can't help but share Op 36 with them.
What a fantastic program. The kids love it, and so do I.
Operation 36 is a super impressive platform, and I'm proud to be a part of it.
Through Op36, we are giving golf professionals a way to have a significant impact at their facility by increasing the number of students in player development and increasing revenue.
