Dave Thomas designed the golf course at Donnington Grove Country Club in 1993 and it’s a testing layout that is routed through the secluded Donnington Grove Estate where the historic castle stands guard.
The pros for the course are length, good greens, some interesting holes 4, 6, 8 and 10 spring to mind and great value for money as a visitor in June on a Saturday morning.
The cons are massive walks between 1 and 2, 8 and 9, 9 and 10 and 18 to club house. The course is a buggy course. Also the bunkers need a lot of work at the time of playing as some are bare, some with grass growing out of them, most have a lot of stones in and there seems to be different sand in different bunkers finally then a random bunker with so much sand in that a ball just plugged. These need looking at.
Value for money though is key here it is a nice layout and you can’t complain at the price.
