Pros: a very fun course with a lot of mature trees playing on long rolling hills. have never had to wait to throw and usually can meet up with a local to throw with. has a few very unique holes that play over a creek
Cons: at first kind of hard to navigate but not a huge problem. plays around several roads and fairly easity to put it ob if you have any arm at all. also the creek that plays threw the course can be troublesome but not a major concern

Other Thoughts:
This is a really good course for any player, beginners, and advanced. There are a couple tough shots that might be hard for someone just starting out, but they should still enjoy the nice setting and the course itself is pretty fun to play.

The layout of the course is pretty good. There were only a couple things that I can think of that might be a little confusing. First, when you come to hole two the basket is across the creek, the fairway is the small bridge that you see in front of you. After two and three you will then need to use that same bridge to get back to the tee for hole 4.

That same bridge is going to come into play again on hole 16. You will need to use to get to the basket or climb down into the creek and back up the other side.

As far as whether or not I would call this course wooded, probably not, but keep in mind there are plenty of mature trees in every fairway to add challenge. The designers also added in a few mandos, holes 4, 6, 11 and 12 I believe, which is another added challenge.

As I stated above the creek comes into play on a few holes. Holes 2 and 16 you must actually throw over the creek, but there are a few more that if you have an off target throw, your disc could be swimming. This isn't a huge deal the creek is really shallow and the roughest thing you might encounter is the steep hill you have to climb down and up to get into the creek. With a bad throw you could end up in the creek on 3, 12 ( an even smaller creek here), 14, and 15.

The course is laid out pretty well and there aren't really any issues finding the next tee. Most baskets have little red arrows on the pole pointing to the next tee, its a nice little touch. The only places there are even the slightest questions about where to go next is after hole 3, like I said just cross back across the bridge and go to the right. After hole 7, you have to go down and cross the main road that runs through the park to get to 8. Then after #14,you cross the bridge and head up past the bathrooms about 100ft or so and the tee for 15 is up the hill.

I really enjoy getting out to play this course whenever I have time to do so. There are a couple really great holes on this course that make it stand out. Hole 12 is a 475ft down a small hill, over a road, and across a small creek. Holes 2 and 16 are also very good. I would recommend this course to anyone looking to play a nice course or anyone who is in the area.

 Pretty but not overly challenging

Pros: Pretty park and as the other reviewers have said, lots of mature trees and well manicured fairways. Several holes require a good placement of your drive through very fair fairways in order to deuce.
Cons: Lots of crossing fairways where you have to walk in front of a tee to get to your next hole. I don't see this course playing smoothly once it has a tournament crowd on it.

Holes don't require a lot of strategy and there isn't a lot of penalty for being off the mark and result in easy threes. On this course you could shoot bogie free but get pounded because you didn't get enough birdies.

Not sure if so many holes had mandatories to make them harder or reduce the chance of hitting other players. However a lot of them were redundant since the mandatory required you to go to the most likely fairway anyway.
Other Thoughts: Here's a suggestion, why not put the hole information on the long tee rather than the short? In most cases you get to the long tee first so this would save you from having to walk up to the short, get the layout and distance and walk back to your tee. If you are playing from the shorts you can simply stroll by the long tee and not have to double-back.

Pros: this park is well kept and the course is brand new. mature trees with well defined fairways, guided in part by mandatories (arrows on trees and tee signs). short and long tees, both concrete. there are a variety of shots and lengths. backhands, forehands, low ceilings, narrow gaps, mandos, and big throws, as well as risk reward.
Cons: the layout is a bit tricky in a couple places but after the first time you get the hang of it. the tee signs are only on the shorts, so if there is a long, you have no info. there is a creek that runs along the park and comes into play on multiple holes, the con is that it has very little water in it and is very hard to be surrounded (perhaps ob lines should be painted or roped). you think it would be a factor but it doesnt really. benches would be nice here and there, but the park is great so i cant really complain.
Other Thoughts: i believe there are local doubles or leagues, as there was a flyer, but im not sure who takes care of this course or designed it. the mandos took a course that could have been boring and made it punish errant shots, and gave defined fairways.

the images make it look as though it is in the middle of nowhere, but it is actually right next to a large swimming pool and in the middle of town.

Pros: The Bellefontaine course is a very well kept park that gives you beautiful views and some challenging holes. Everything is well spaced out and has allot of different, such a as beautiful trees moderate hills and plenty of wild life. Plus it is relatively new so people will ask you how too play disc golf
Cons: The cons are allot of trees so if you hit one on every hole just be glad it was one tree and the kids that walk around may stair you down sometimes.
