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.

Golf course surrounded by roads so a bit noisy but it was in fabulous condition. Testing without being too long. Offered a buggy service from the hotel to first tee which was a bonus. We are looking to go back soon!

Very enjoyable course - brown due to weather but well presented and greens in very good shape.
A challenging but rewarding course.

Lovely course, good variety and challenging sloped narrow fairways. Grass on fairways was very dry but greens were good. Service from club house was very good in being able to switch our tee times.
