Donnington Grove Golf Club
At over 7,100 yards from the championship markers, the course represents a stern test for even the most skilled golfers, but the choice of tees ensures that it is playable for everyone. The lush fairways reflect the sweeping undulations of the landscape, while the higher points allow for superb panoramic views across the surrounding countryside.
The front nine spans the higher ground and is relatively exposed, while golfers will have to negotiate the woodland and water of the exacting closing stretch. The entertaining and demanding course has staged two PGA Europro Tour events, and is a certain highlight during a golf break at Donnington Grove.
In addition to the golf course, there is also a Golf Academy managed by the world renowned instructor, Jonathan Yarwood. The Academy will provide lessons within the exclusive facilities, which includes an in-door academy room, fitted with the latest videoing and viewing technology and the new academy tee, chipping and putting green areas located at the far end of the range.
Donnington Grove prides itself on the condition of its putting surfaces, and manages to avoid switching to temporary greens in the winter months.
Originally designed by John Chute, the striking Gothic construction that now houses Donnington Grove's hotel was completed in 1772. With this legacy, the hotel with its 3* AA rating is now abundant in history and character, making it a most interesting destination for your next golf break.
While the overriding style may be traditional, and the accommodation intimate, the 24 guest bedrooms all benefit from modern amenities like satellite television. The hotel is decorated and furnished harmoniously, with period features ensuring that the mansion house's history is not forgotten. Unwind in the beautifully manicured gardens, and enjoy this delightful rural golfing retreat.
Adjacent to the hotel there is the self contained Summer House which is a great for group bookings. The Summer house has 6 twin rooms with a communal area, it's own parking and a private terrace.
Within Donnington Grove's estate winds the River Lambourn which is well-stocked with both Rainbow and Brown Trout. If relaxing in the sauna does not appeal, the more adventurous visitors can try their hand at clay pigeon shooting.
Donnington Grove's sublime restaurant serves a wide range of European-style creations.
The Members' Bar and the Lounge Bar both offer golfers and their comrades a comfortable place to relax with a drink or a snack.

We all enjoyed Donnington Grove for our golf break. For once the weather was kind to us. The course was in superb condition: Fairways a joy to walk on, greens fast ant true. If there was a criticism the majority of the bunkers were clay with little sand and some had weeds growing out of them, but we shouldn’t have been in them anyway! Quite a long course and a good test of an amateur’s golf. The hotel was very attractive and comfortable. Everybody was very friendly and the service was good.
All in all, and I think that I can speak for all of us, we all enjoyed it and will be asking Your Golf Travel next time we book a golf break.
Just back from our golf break to Donnington Grove and thought it excellent value for money.
The golf course was great with some very interesting holes thanks to a few blind shots from the challenging back tees. The greens were great as was the condition of the rest of the course. I would advise a buggy as some of the walks between holes were a bit on the long side!
Everyone in the 19th hole was very welcoming and hospitable. The hotel is an old Manor house so the rooms are of an old style but they feel very clean and nice and I prefer older hotels to new Plastic ones anyway!
I’d give the golf break 8 out of 10 and as always the personal approach of YGT cannot be praised highly enough. My event was looked after brilliantly and could always talk to my account manager who understood exactly what I wanted and moved mountains to make me happy! Many thanks. YGT = 10 out of 10!
