• Area 313 Challenge


The Rocket Mortgage Classic continues its tradition of pledging donations to the community through the AREA 313 Challenge during tournament play.


AREA 313 Challenge

AREA 313 includes holes 14, 15 and 16 at Detroit Golf Club – dubbed “AREA 313” in honor of Detroit’s area code. TOUR players will compete to make an eagle, ace, birdie (3-1-3) on holes 14, 15 and 16 on each of the 4 days of tournament play. The first golfer to achieve this feat will win $313,000 in their name toward Rocket Mortgage Classic charities connected to digital access and Detroit’s digital divide.


Rocket Mortgage is taking the AREA 313 Challenge a step further this year. Anytime a player hits a “3” or “1” or “3,” on the respective holes, there will be a direct donation made by Rocket Mortgage.

A “3” or eagle on hole 14 will amount to a $2,500 donation by Rocket Mortgage.

A “1” or hole-in-one on hole 15 will amount to a $10,000 donation by Rocket Mortgage.

A “3” or birdie on hole 16 will amount to a $2,500 donation by Rocket Mortgage.


Changing the Course

In addition to putting a spotlight on Detroit, the Rocket Mortgage Classic also seeks to address real challenges in the community with strategic philanthropic investments that lead to generational change.


Changing The Course is the Rocket Mortgage Classic’s signature philanthropic initiative and was established in 2020 in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic to address Detroit’s longstanding digital divide and ensure every resident can access the digital world and the opportunity it brings.
