PATTI BUTCHER GOLF ENTERPRISES-A GOLF CHANNEL ACADEMY

JUNIOR PROGRAMS: POWERED BY OPERATION 36

Patti Butcher Golf Enterprises has always focused on bringing West Michigan junior golfers the best and most complete programming in the game of golf, from beginners to elite/competitive juniors. We are now excited to announce that we have upped our game and are adding accountability and additional gamification and technology utilization by partnering with OPERATION36, the industry leading platform. Check it out at  www.operation36.com.  PBGE offers introductory programs for kids as young as 3½ years old, as well as Elite Junior Coaching programs with Supervised Practice. We have proven curriculum for every age, interest, and ability. With indoor off-season coaching available at the technology-rich Golf Studio by PBGE and in-season coaching at the premier game-like practice facilities of Scott Lake Golf and Practice Center, coupled with over 30 years of experience, PBGE offers the most comprehensive golf experience for the youth of Western Michigan.

Operation 36 is an industry-leading platform for junior golf integrating modern technology to track AND encourage the performance of your child with the expert instruction of Patti Butcher Golf Enterprises, thus guaranteeing the results you expect to see from your child’s efforts. The program is based on long term success and skill development as the student works through levels achieving badges in skills, rules, and character.  Additionally, each student masters shooting 36 for nine holes beginning 25 yards from the green then adding yardage until they ultimately shoot par from regulation tee boxes. Throughout her thirty-year career, Patti Butcher has always utilized gamification as she teaches skills as well as coaching how to play the game and character development. This new platform incorporates the most recent research as well technology to add the accountability/measurement piece she has long searched for. In this program, PBGE guarantees results or will refund your investment.  Wait and see what this app can do for your child’s progress.  I am happy to meet with interested parents and explain all the benefits of this long-term coaching platform. www.operation36.com ALL PROGRAMS HELD AT SCOTT LAKE.
