Operation 36

We have weekly clinics for all age levels at the Ballantyne Golf Academy and they're very popular!

Operation 36 is Ballantyne Golf Academy’s first ever Long Term Player Development program.  The idea is to get kids to shoot a score of 36 for 9 holes of golf from their full tee box!  The program is broken down into three different segments:  Academy Classes, Supervised Practices, and Operation 36 Matches. The Matches will allow the student's to take the techniques they learn in class and translate them on course at The Golf Club at Ballantyne. The Operation 36 program has a six level standardized curriculum that golfers will progress through each week in the academy class.  Within each level there are twelve subjects that categorize the area of learning for the class that day.  For each level there is one objective students must be able to demonstrate to their coach.  Once they have completed all twelve objectives they will level up! The program is centered around playing the game and all objectives are geared towards getting the students to score 36 or better from their respective level.

When signing up for this program, you will have access to 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 leader boards feature.

Our Teaching Professionals lead and communicate with their player development communities through the app and keep track of golfers stats to make sure they are improving and progressing in the program. Parents will receive weekly email updates on their child's progression.

Recommended for:

  • Boys and Girls ages 5-8
  • Grouped for instruction according to age
  • Appropriate for all skill levels- including beginning junior golfers who are ready to start their golfing careers out right! Age groups will be separated once the clinics begin.

Class Duration:

Operation 36 is an 8-week program with one class per week plus two Sunday Matches. You have different days and times to choose from in order to schedule what works best for your family!

The Winter Tour is a 6-week program with one class per week plus two Sunday Matches.

Note: Clinics are sold as a series and not as individual classes. Please plan to attend all scheduled classes in each series. There are no pro-rated refunds. Substitutions not permitted for the similar clinic held on a different day. There are no make-up sessions for missed clinics, unless extreme weather causes us to cancel. In that instance, we will schedule a make-up date.
