Another redesign and greatly improved.
Pros: Pulaski park is a recreational disc golf course in the midst of a multi-purpose park. The course features 18 baskets with concrete tee pads. Most posts and signs are in but a few are missing. Any experienced player can find the next drive with a bit of looking. First time players might find it a bit frustrating but, the numbers on the baskets were fixed and the tee can be found via logic and reason.
The redesign has eliminated many of the extremely short shots. 190' (11) is the shortest shot while most are between 220' and 280'. The course was moved a bit north to lengthen the drives such a 13 and 14. The course has about five drives that are 300' plus or minus a yard. Many of the old trees have been removed and new ones planted. Thus in few years, the drives that are docile today will become more intricate with time.
The park is well manicured and washroom facilities are available. A large parking lot next to the pool is a short walk from the course. Benches are located throughout the course for the weary player.
Cons: The multi-purpose park is the biggest con. Drive 1 flanks a pool and a sidewalk. An errant shot could wind up in the pool, on the roof or out on the street. Players must be aware of pedestrians at all times. A pavilion in the middle of the course invites onlookers and picnickers to the course. Also a soccer field, though seldom used, takes up part of 18.
Experienced players might find this course too easy. The flat landscape and some field shots will not test skills at a high level. The designers tried to create complicated drives, but the shortness and lack of landscape obstacles undermines their creativity.
Other Thoughts: The relaxing nature of the course is its ideal attraction. There are some days a quick round or two is just right to keep skills sharp. Accessing the park is relatively easy and being in Hammond there are plenty of lunch places around.
The football field to the north of the course can be used for practice shots.

Great rebuild! Play away
Pros: - Nice & new
- Distance variety
- Not crowded
Cons: - Tee pads are not installed yet
- Tee marker posts are not helpful
Other Thoughts: Great new baskets and nice park. Not sure why the neighborhood keeps getting flagged. The whole time I was there, families were running and walking by, enjoying the nice day in their community. My only problems with this course were the pool fence along hole 1 that I almost went over, the tee markers being ripped off or near impossible to locate, and the trees (not the park's fault, I just went high every shot and if there was a tree around, I found it!)
