COMMUNITY NEWS AND UPDATES
Operation 36 Partners With Oldfield
Olfield, SC: Partners with Operation 36.
> Oldfield, Okatie SC is the latest select golf club to partner with Operation 36, the innovative and nationally recognized golf player-development program. At Oldfield, the licensed Operation 36 program will be guided by John Kauzlarich and Kirk Mitchell. Operation 36 provides golf professionals with a complete developmental program to serve the growing market of beginners.
All new players begin on the course, and instead of starting at the tee box, they play from 25 yards away from the hole. Once a player shoots par (36) from 25 yards, they back up to 50 yards, and so on, until, if possible, they are shooting even par (36) from the full tee box. Send me more information about Oldfield!
