Welcome to the New Yak City: Downtown Rooftop Smash in Pontiac! This event's purpose is to fund-raise a new course in Hawthorne Park and introduce disc golf to the community. This is a two-course event. One will be the future layout we hope to build in Hawthorne Park and the other will be 4-stories above the City atop of the Phoenix Center Park and Amphitheater. An Ace Pool, 50/50 CTP for each course, Divisional CTP's(free to enter) and Raffles will all be available.

A couple of Phoenix Center rules:
1. Mid-Ranges and Putters only. All holes are less than 210'.
2. Don't be an idiot. Don't whip your disc around willy-nilly. No one wants to see that and we don't want anyone to get hurt. We will be 4 stories above downtown and Orchard Lake Road actually runs through the Phoenix Center. Accidents happen, discs will go off the Rooftop but we have hopefully designed the course in a way that should not bring the road into play.
3. If your disc does fly off the rooftop, wait until AFTER the round to retrieve it. It's a necessary evil to ensure the pace of play. So, bring doubles and don't throw an $80 limited edition disc.
4. It may be a short course but it's a difficult par 54. It can get quite windy, every hole has OB and most have hazards. The scorecards will have the rules and hazards outlined for each hole. If you go OB, Play from where it went out or go to the drop zone with a one-stroke penalty. If you land in a hazard, play from where it lies with a one-stroke penalty.
