Best Places to Watch

Area 313

Area 313 features the 14th, 15th and 16th holes at Detroit Golf Club. It starts with a long par-5 with a green near a pond, then a tough par-3 followed up by the straight par 4-16th. If any golfer makes an eagle, a hole-in-one and a birdie on those holes (3-1-3), the golfer will get $313,000 donated to help bridge the digital divide in Detroit.

Specifically in Area 313, there’s a great spot along the right side of the 14th fairway, or in between the 14th and 16th fairways.

Hole 1

There is a public grandstand surrounding the first tee, which will allow you to see golfers tee off every day starting their round. Make sure to bring sunscreen!

Holes 2-3

A pathway right between the 2nd green and 3rd hole is a great place to see golfers hit their approach shots and putts on 2 and tee shots on the third hole.

The Treehouse

The Treehouse is an area behind the par-3 5th hole, which is an elevated hole with a great view of the green and tee shot. It also will allow you to see approach shots into the 7th green and tee shots on the 8th hole.

Holes 11-13

There is an area in between the 11th green, 12th tee and 13th green that is a great spot to hang out. There are picnic tables, food, drinks, and plenty of action on the course.



The tournament will have complimentary admission and parking on Tuesday, June 27 and Wednesday, June 28 as part of Detroit Community Days. There will also be a First Tee – Greater Detroit youth Clinic and Area 313 Celebrity Scramble on Tuesday.

Fans will also get up to 4 kids ages 15 and under complimentary grounds admissions all week long with a ticketed adult.

Tickets for the tournament start at $65 for daily grounds passes on Thursday, going up to $75 on Friday and $85 on the weekend.

You can also get passes into the LendingTree Lounge or Club Ace.

Fan Experiences

There are plenty of fan experiences throughout the tournament. On top of the previously-mentioned areas like the Treehouse and Area 313, fans can check out the High Noon Sun Deck if you are 21 and up, spend some time and money shopping at the PGA Tour Fan Shop, see some of the golfers work on their touch on the putting greens, and kids can check out the autograph zone.

Area 313 Village and Area 313 Grove also surround holes 14-16, and that’s where you can grab a bite to eat, get a cold drink and sit down to get out of the sun.
