    Donnington Valley Golf Course Details

    Golf at Donnington Valley Hotel and Spa

    A challenging parkland layout set in beautiful Berkshire countryside, Donnington Valley is always very popular with Golfbreaks.com customers... not least because of its memorable closing holes back towards the Grade II listed clubhouse.

    Donnington Valley Golf Course

    18 holes, 71 par, 6353 yards. Parkland.

    Donnington Valley Hotel and Spa, in Newbury, Berkshire had its beautiful 18 hole parkland golf course re-designed and lengthened between 1998 and 2000 and is now a challenging 6,353 yards, par 71 course from the back tees. Although some of the holes are quite forgiving the closing four holes are regarded as one of the toughest finishes in the country, with water featuring prominently on 15th, 16th and 17th holes. The clubhouse, Snelsmore House, a Grade II listed Victorian building overlooks the 9th/18th green and offers golfers exceptional golfing and social facilities with its two bars.

    T times were changed without notification on Sunday from 11:10 to 12:50. You were busy and this was accepted but because we were a 2 ball we got pushed round.

    Managing expectations could have been better.

    Greens had just had work; has to be done, unfortunate that we caught it. However condition looked a bit iffy and game spoiled by tricky putting.
    Slow play ahead , shame but inevitable we suppose on a popular course
