AREA 313 Challenge

Anyone can make a flat donation toward the AREA 313 Challenge by clicking on the redDONATE” button above, and the Rocket Mortgage Classic pros will also be playing for a chance to score big toward our Changing the Course initiative.

AREA 313 includes holes 14, 15 and 16 at Detroit Golf Club – dubbed “AREA 313” in honor of Detroit’s area code. The first player to score a 3 on Hole 14 (an eagle), a hole-in-one on Hole 15, and a 3 on Hole 16 (a birdie) – scoring a 3-1-3 along that stretch – cumulatively over the four days of tournament play will trigger a $313,000 donation made in his name and split between a charity of the golfer’s choice and the Connect 313 Fund, in support of Changing the Course.

Additionally, for each 3 made on hole 14, Rocket Mortgage will donate $5,000 to Changing the Course, while any hole-in-one on hole 15 will trigger a $25,000 donation and any 3 made on hole 16 will result in a $5,000 donation. Last year, thanks to 15 eagles made on the 14th hole and 63 birdies made on the 16th, Rocket Mortgage’s donation totaled $385,000!

Changing the Course

In a new world where everything has shifted online, access is not equal. Countless Detroit residents are isolated from opportunities many of us take for granted. COVID-19 has made this issue come to light more than ever. Our primary objective is to serve as a platform to bring awareness to Detroit’s recovery and raise funds to bridge the digital divide in Detroit. In order to address digital inclusion in Detroit, the Rocket Mortgage Classic will make investments in three key areas: technology, broadband access, and digital literacy.
