It's still there for the most part

Pros: Decent layout and placement of holes. Fairly easy to figure out where thr next hole is. Good if you want to work on short to mid range game. The park itself is pretty small so I think they did a good job with the the space they had to work with.
Cons: Sign AND BASKET are missing for hole 1, and for hole 9 as well. So technically this is currently a 7 hole course. I wouldn't expect any replacements either from the looks of it. The baskets are complete crap. Single chain layer and most of the paint is rusted and coming off. Tee pads are extremely small.
Other Thoughts: Played the whole thing on about 20 minutes solo. I was in the area so I figured I'd check it out. From the other reviews I've read my expectations weren't very high to begin with.

Pros: This course plays quickly all 9 can be finished in 40 minutes or less. Mundy DGC is very good for anyone starting out as the shorter distances to targets are easier to reach for players just beginning.
Like with many City Parks there is picnic, playground and walking/running paved pathway and it is easy for friends and family to get together and all have something they like to do here if there are non-disc golf types.
Cons: Changes made in 2016 have not done this course fairly. Due to new fence being installed by adjacent business and due to football traffic parking on the fairways and on top of the Tee Pads. Hole 1, 8 and hole 9 have been relocated. This means that what was hole 2 is now hole 1. That is a bit of a hike from the parking space which makes finding hole 1 for new players a bit of a challenge.
Holes 1, 8 and 9 have been placed further back past what was hole 7 which is now hole 6. Tees for 7, 8 and 9 are now thrown from the pave walking/running pathway. 7 and 8 are thrown over the pathway as well. This is a potential hazard for non-disc golfer. Your disc can easily collide with anyone on the pathway. Add in that there are now also some blind spots where you may throw and just a moment later someone can jog around the corner on the pathway to become a unwilling disc catcher. Well best to not throw 7 and 8 if even moderate park use is occuring.
9 still tees from the path but at least will not affect runners/walkers. However it does require the disc flight line to cross the corner for one of the football fields. The Basket is directly in and fairly close to a playground area. Here again caution must be used. If anyone is using the football field or playground area there is a potential for hitting someone with a disc.
For throwers who prefer longer Tees and big run ups the Tees are Mundy are short. It is usually not a problem however as most of the course is short enough that you don't really need a big run up.
The InStep baskets are in rough condition and really are poorly designed with the single chains extending so far out that the disc will often not even have a chance to fall into the basket but rather falls to the outside of the basket.
Other Thoughts: This used to be a favorite course as it was a quick play course where you could do some serious short game tuning.
The Park favors foot ball over Disc Golf and it is evident in the way the DGC has been up rooted and pushed around.
Sadly this course is being removed from my favorite list and on a serious note I'd like to see the MJ Park Commission simply relocate the Disc Golf course to another City owned Park or area. Also take the sport a bit more seriously as Disc Golfers should have as much right to throw on a course as Football Fanatics do to park on the fairways and over top of the Tee Pads. I mean REALLY!!!
