Operation 36 2020 General Information

To register for one of the following classes, go to:

2020 Semester Dates!

This will link you to the Operation 36 web app.  Register your family if not already done so, create a golfer account for your junior (must be one for each), then go to the classes section from the left margin and select a class time for your junior(s).  I will then be notified and will be able to put your junior as accepted in the class.  Once this is finished, I will contact you for a $100 deposit for the program to hold your spot which can be paid by any major credit card or personal check made payable to Jimmy Hamilton.  This is refundable at the start of classes, however and if you must withdraw and the class falls below the minimum of 4 students and then a $25 fee will be withheld from the refund.  If already registered from a previous semester, go to your home page dashboard and select classes on the left and register in the class.  There is a minimum of 4 students to hold a class and a maximum of 6 per class.  If you register in a class and WE cannot get the minimum, you will have the option to get into a class that is not full.  If WE cannot fill a class to the minimum and an alternative does not work, your deposit is completely refundable.  If a class is marked as private, it has already been filled by returning families.  Any registrant above 6 in a class will be notified within a few hours to select another class.  PLEASE BE SURE YOU HAVE READ THE INFORMATION AT THE BEGINNING OF THE SECTION AS PER CLASS MAKEUP AND ON COURSE MAKEUP SESSIONS. Tuition balance after deposit is due on the first day of class with either any major credit card or personal check made payable to Jimmy Hamilton. If you need assistance in registering please contact Jimmy Hamilton at 919-906-1290 voice or text.

This will be Operation 36 kicked up to higher levels! Not for just ANYONE!!

Some guidelines for 2020 as we work to make the program as good as it can be. To maintain student teacher ratios of 6/1 in each class, specific class makeup times will be scheduled during the semester. Attending another class that is already full will not be allowed. During the spring and fall semesters, on course challenge matches will be held on Saturday and Sunday. Makeups of missed weekends will still be allowed to double up another weekend. During the summer session with matches only on Sundays, if weather cancels a Sunday event, the following Saturday will be the makeup. Saturday August 15 will be a designated makeup if you must miss a match for other than weather reasons.
REFUNDS or CREDITS available ONLY in the event weather cancels an event and prohibits a makeup from being offered.
