Great for beginners and intermediate players
Pros: Good distances averaging about 270ft, few but good size obstacles, has a risky water hole, and the last three holes are repetitive but nice to open up your throws on. Great variety
Cons: Could be a longer course, but its still great to just play multiple games
Fun for practice/quick playthrough
Pros: -Relatively easy for newcomers
-Fairly well-kept grass
-Great for knocking out a quick round (~30 mins on a good day)
Cons: -may be too short for more experienced players
-Hole #5 is tricky to master at first, pretty easy to lose a disc if you're not careful
-Get's a little boring the more you play it
-The last 3 holes are really repetitive
Other Thoughts: I'm not a huge fan of the layout, it gets boring pretty quickly. It's a great course for someone who may be just starting out. I wish there was a putting practice pin on the course.
What is Love?
Pros: This is the course I started my disc golf career on. I credit the beginner friendliness to my love for disc golf. The grass is well maintained and the tee boxes are concrete. West Pulaski is a very open course and every hole gives one the ability to drive to the basket. This is a very course for beginners, and the prominent potential for Aces/Eagles allows expert disc golfers to have a good time as well.
Hole #5 is a very rememberable hole. It is a downhill, par-4. The basket is right on the shore of beautiful Pulaski Lake. To the right of the hole there is a thick wooded area with long grass. There are many large trees that limit driving to the pin. It is also nice to hop in the lake and cool down.
Cons: Holes #7-9 are generally the same thing. They are basically just straight-aways on an open field. There are also no specific fairways. Almost all of the grass is the same length and there is rarely a penalty for bad drives.
Other Thoughts: I recommend getting out to Pulaski and hitting this course. You won't regret it.
one fun hole

Pros: Fun little course geared towards recreational players. Easy layout to follow.
Hole five is a fun downhill with a lake just behind the basket. All other holes are fairly easy and straight forward.
Cons: The course uses the land well, but most holes are short and could be easily deuced. Relatively boring course. Hole five is the one exception.
Other Thoughts: If I lived in town, I would play the course often and bring unexperienced players out. For a veteran golfer, this course will be a bit boring.

Pros: West Pulaski is the perfect course for the average disc golfer. This course is a great place to have a nice relaxed game of disc golf. Hole 5 is one of the best holes I have ever played on a hill leading to a lake. The grass is upkept very well.
Cons: Not very challenging for the pros. Distance is not a factor and the course is very easy to get birdies and eagles.
Other Thoughts: The high schoolers don't bug people there. They're actually pretty nice kids most of the time.

Pros: Easy park to find, right off of main highway. Not a busy course. Easy warm up course on your way to Annandale/Clearwater. Has a very cool hole that has you shooting right onto the lakeshore. If the water were high, the basket would be surrounded by water. Easy course for Aces and Birdies
Cons: A few holes have you shooting towards a playground. Easy to lose your disk on the water hole. (hole 4 or 5). No long holes to get a good drive on.

Plain and simple
Pros: Easy to play, very very good for starters. Hole #5 is awesome going down to the water; makes the course in my opinion.
Cons: Not very challenging for someone who has been playing for a long time.
Other Thoughts: Worth playing at least once. As far is "high school punks go" as some people mentioned in their reviews; don't mind them. They don't bother anyone and they keep to themselves. Don't have to worry about being hassled.

Pros: This course is strait up awesome. It is perfect if you're the kind of frolfer who likes to go out with their buddies and have a great time. The course sits on a gorgeous lake. While the lake may swallow your disc, it is great to take a swim in the middle of the round in those hot summer days. The course features a fairly nice variety of terrain as well.
Cons: The only annoying part of the course is on holes 7 8 9. They are wide open. This is because the trees on the holes are still very small. Eventually these holes will be more kf a challenge. Other than that no other bad things to say.
Other Thoughts: Play this course! It is a really great time. It is a course that I personally never get tired of.

Is Your Fav Disc Swimming With The Fishes On # 5 ?
Pros: Take away # 5 and this is just another typical little 9 hole city parks course. It does have the nice trapazoid shaped concrete tee pads. The baskets are DGA with the red numbers. The tee signs are the standard white plastic ones and surprise, none have been broken up yet, although # 2 is currently missing.
The pars listed are for elementary kids making this another course where you can rack up the eagles and the occasional double eagle like on the # 3, a 329' Par 5.
# 5 is the signature hole here but I think it is also the single most disc swallowing hole I've ever encountered in the 375 courses I've played. It's just a 243' touch shot through the trees down a very steep hill. But the basket sits 5 feet from shores of beautiful Pulaski Lake. Any run at the basket, any skip at all and splash! It's a very pretty hole but deadly. It's like the mysterious. beautiful, sexy Russian spy in all the James Bond movies. She's drawing you in. So alluring that you can't resist. Then one measly overthrow and your fav disc swims with the fishes in beautiful Pulaski Lake.
Cons: On # 1 there are silly Out of Bounds signs that are 6 feet in front of the parks chain link fence along the right side of the fairway. Of all the courses that need OB signs, this is not the place. The chain link fence is OB enough.
Holes 7-8-9 are boring. All three are almost the exact length and the exact same throw just back and forth across the field.
Other Thoughts: I guess I was lucky to miss the afore-mentioned high school punks. There was one shady looking guy parked nearby. Maybe he was looking for the high school punks? Maybe he was a high school punk?
It's a fun, little recreational park course with one very interesting disc drinking hole and maybe some high school punks thrown in for good measure and with beautiful Pulaski Lake views for those interested in that sort of things.

Pros: Good putter practice
#5, in my mind after playing 55 courses in Minnesota is one of the top 3 holes in the state behind #4 at Blue Ribbon Pines and #15 at Hidden lake.
Cons: Lots of high school punks sitting in the parking lot.
Other Thoughts: Not worth the long drive if I was playing just this course but #5 makes this course a 2 instead of a 1.
