It's Spelled Correctly. It IS Junk!
7 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: It attempts to be a family friendly, fun little, mostly wide open recreational course, which I would normally rave about.
Cons: All of the things aforementioned.... crossing/ conflictual fairways, missing tee signs, baskets and whole holes. Though the course's grass is largely mowed very nicely, very short, whoever mows it obviously doesn't understand that fairways need to be more than ten to twelve feet wide and there needs to be a circumferential area around baskets more than just a couple of feet.
The roughs on this course are so rough, that literal hours of searching on separate occasions, doesn't find a lost disc. You might not even be able to find a disc equipped with a Disc Beeper.
Other Thoughts: If anyone actually plays this course and has found, or should find my beloved blue Blizzard driver, with the Asian style comedy/tragedy masks logo, in the rough behind the #4 basket, please let me know. I will reward its return.

Not the original course.
Pros: The course is so overgrown that there is virtually no traffic at any given time.
Cons: The course is laid out on a large hill. Fairways overlap. Missing baskets, missing tees, missing signage. It's not maintained, see other thoughts for an explanation.
Other Thoughts: As the name implies, Fun Junktion is a park built by the city over an old section of a still active landfill. When the park was built, the city spent a ton of money to make it nice and it truly was. It had an artificial pond for swimming, nice playgrounds, paved walking trails, etc...The discgolf course, as you would expect surrounded the park. A couple of years after it was open, a severe hurricane knocked down most of the trees along the discgolf course making it unusable. The baskets were gathered up and relocated to another area; the hill. It seems that the placement was done without any thought of what would actually work. On top of that, the city has been running on a financial deficit and they have allowed the park to fall into disrepair, hence the missing tees, signs, and baskets mentioned in other reviews. (The park is even worse!) It looks like they only mow the disc golf course because the have to and they only mow the bare minimimum leaving 90% of the course to grow wild. Since they don't mow frequently, even the grass on the fairways is often shin deep. (Anything off the fairway is practically impassable!) Most of your time is spent searching the grass for your discs; even if it landed only a few feet off the fairway. Even though I live 15 minutes away from this course, I drive 45 minutes to a better park. (It's sad; really.)
