Can you shoot the score of 36 (even par) or better for 9 holes from full tee-box? Unless you are in the top 1% of golfers around the world the answer is probably no. Over 125 golf facilities across the US, Canada, UK, and Australia are changing the way golfers learn to play with the Operation 36 Golf Program. The end goal of the program is simple; Shoot even par (score of 36) or better for 9 holes from your full tee-box!
Golfers of all ages and abilities can join a player development community led by passionate golf professionals. Each golfer works through 6 levels of development in group Academy Classes and plays in Operation 36 Matches. The program is centered around playing the game and challenging golfers to see where they can shoot the target score of 36 (par for 9 holes) from on the course.
How does it work? Each golfer starts in Division 1 and plays 9 holes from 25 yards from the hole (225-yard course). When the golfer can shoot 36 or less, they progress to Division 2 and play their next round from 50 yards from the hole. This process continues through 6 divisions until the golfer beats the challenge of shooting 36 (par or better) from their full tee-box.
The Curriculum & Technology
To provide a roadmap for golfers to improve their skills and score on the course, the program also contains 6 levels, each level containing 12 objectives. Golfers are taught these objectives by golf professionals in weekly programs. Once achieved, the professional marks the objective complete in the Operation 36 Mobile App. The mobile app is the central hub where golfers can view their objectives, log when they play and train, connect with their friends in a social activity feed, and have friendly competitions using the community leaderboards feature.
The golf professional leads and communicates with their player development communities through the app and keeps track of golfer’s stats to make sure they are improving and progressing in the program.
