Consider the junior golf program that has been organized in the past here at the club: anywhere from 5-7 weeks long, with one forty-minute group clinic per week, followed by some on-course play.  This has been the framework for the junior golf program for most clubs for decades.  The problems with it are significant, mainly that: it’s loosely structured, provides limited, if any, significant instruction to individual students, is boring for both the student AND instructor, and lacks the ability to measure a student’s success.

We think there’s a better way.

Operation 36 is organized by a network of golf professionals who believe that, in order to grow the game, we need to have a motivating player development roadmap to help introduce and develop skilled golfers.  The challenge we set for our players is the score of 36 (par for 9 holes). By working from green to tee-box versus the traditional tee-box to green, it lowers the challenge point, and is a motivating way to learn and progress in the sport.

Operation 36 utilizes a state of the art app that allows students and parents to track and measure progress, while also allowing instructors to interact regularly with their students and monitor progress, assign drills and ‘homework’, etc.

The summer session of Op36, which will replace the club’s traditional, tired junior golf program, will stretch over 9 weeks broken up into 2 "sessions". Each "session" will be filled with two hours of fun-filled and significant instruction per week for each student and three “tests” held bi-weekly to provide the desired challenge point for each student.
 
PROGRAM IMPACT
More Instruction – We will be providing TEN hours of instruction per junior, along with 6 hours of testing, over the 5 weeks, as opposed to just FOUR hours of instruction in past programs.
 
ELIGIBILITY & FEES
Children and grandchildren of all golf members are eligible to participate.  Entry fee for the nine week summer session and testing is $300/junior per session.  Parents of multiple participants will enjoy a small per-student discount:
  • 1 student: $300pp

Children of non-golf Stonebridge members (Tennis, House, & Social) are also eligible to participate!  Entry fee for the nine-week summer session and testing is $360/junior per session.  Parents of multiple participants will enjoy a small per-student discount:

New This Year: Children of Non-Stonebridge members may also participate in Op36 as long as they are accompanied by a member’s child (friend, family member, etc.).  Note: This is limited to one child per non-SCC member family.
