Operation 36


Mission Statement

Royal Oaks Country Club is the only facility in Houston that delivers the Operation 36 Golf Coaching Program. The program is designed to progress players of all abilities towards shooting par (score of 36) or better for 9 holes! Players train in small groups and work together to improve their games while having a lot of fun in the process.  
The Operation 36 Program has a 6-level roadmap which contains 72 objectives that our coaches will help you achieve in academy classes on a weekly basis. All participants are issued a profile in the Operation 36 Mobile App Community where you can view your objectives, log golf actions, track your stats/progress, and encourage your friends in a social activity feed.

Each participant can enroll in 3 types of programs:

  1. Operation 36 Academy Classes are designed to provide golfers a group coaching environment to learn the game, set goals, and develop skills. Coaches work through the Operation 36 Curriculum and allow players the opportunity to test and progress in rank.

  2. Operation 36 Matches challenge golfers to shoot the target score of 36 for 9 holes. The format tests scoring skills first by starting 25 yards from the hole and allows golfers to progress back as their skills develop.

  3. Supervised Practice is a structured training session under the watchful eye of a trained coach. They will help you structure your practice and provide feedback to ensure your training session is as efficient as possible.
