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.

Horley not good, I would
the golf was a nightmare , golf breaks didn't even have us booked in, the course was full of hackers so we had to wait over 15min per tee to tee off so we gave up after 6 holes

Hertfordshire We use Golfbreaks regularly
The course is beautiful and was very challenging when we played, as it was set up for the Club Championship but, we enjoyed it. A great course with some long par 4s and not so many par 3s and 5s. We had NP on the 9th and 2nd shot NP on the 10th both by recommendation from the Pro Shop and it worked perfectly.

We would all like to play it again.
