We introduced the Operation 36 junior golf instruction platform in the spring of 2018, and continued in 2019 with an added semester in the summer. At the height of our junior instruction program we would see ~ 35-40 kids enrolled in our weekly program. When Operation 36 was introduced the number immediately jumped to ~ 60 kids and the average $ spent per child on instruction and equipment almost doubled!

The Operation 36 platform is a structured Jr. golf instruction program that consists of weekly group instruction, weekly supervised practice, and monthly private instruction in addition to monthly “matches” on the regulation course

Special programs:

High School Golf Program: We offer local high schools the ability to pay a small fee towards the purchase of vouchers for entry into a weekly clinic hosted at the practice facility. Each school can pay $600 for 30 vouchers to be given out to the team members and the coaches’ discretion.

Golf For Girls: In conjunction with the Mercer University Women’s Golf team, we host two series of clinics (spring and fall) throughout the year for junior girls ages 7-12. Each clinic series includes one clinic per week for 5 weeks and is taught jointly between our instructors and the Mercer women’s team members. The cost of the clinic is kept very low ($15 per kid) in an effort to remove cost as a barrier for participation. We typically have 12-15 girls each week for the clinics.
