The room was comfortable clean, warm and had all the essentials. I was in a ground floor apartment in a small block overlooking the lake. Fabulous! It was a few minutes walk from the hotel, but I was perfectly happy with this. I took 33 golfers and all were happy with their accommodation which was spread throughout the premises.
Donnington Grove Hotel & Golf Club
Donnington Grove's excellent parkland layout was designed by Dave Thomas, the esteemed golf course architect and former Ryder Cup player. His trademark can be seen on many of the United Kingdom's top courses, most notably the Brabazon at the Belfry, which helps to explain why Donnington Grove is held in such high regard.

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.
Accommodation at Donnington Grove Hotel & Golf Club
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.

This was a fabulous course set in wonderful surroundings and was well looked after. I took 33 senior golfers including some low handicappers, and all found the course fair but challenging. Everyone loved playing the course. It was very senior friendly in that it was relatively flat. There was heavy rain for some hours just prior to the first round, but you wouldn't have guessed it when you went to play! The course drains exceptionally well. The only downside was that there were 3 very long walks from green to tee, and I mean very long, plus a long walk at the end. This spoiled the course/venue for our seniors as they found the overall distance too long. Also, it meant a minimum five hour round for a 4 ball even with no hold ups. On the second day several hired buggies which helped, and there are plenty of buggies available. But at £25 a buggy, we felt that was somewhat expensive. Whether a deal could be done, I don't know. Younger people might not find these 3 long walks such a problem, but I have to say that I have never come across such long walks in any other course I have played. A pity, because its a great golf course in very picturesque surroundings.
