What is Operation 36?

Operation 36 is a developmental golf program designed to guide a beginner from playing their first round, to shooting par or better for 9 holes. When following the model, you will begin from 25 yards away from the pin on the green, with a goal of playing 9 holes of golf in less than 36 shots (4 shots per hole). Once you shoot 36 or better, you move on to the next division which is a further distance away from the hole. The end goal in golf is shooting 36 from the furthest back tees on the golf course for your skill level!
