Membership at Donnington Grove

If you are looking for a Club that has an excellent championship golf course, which is regarded as one of the best in the area, with a welcoming friendly atmosphere in the clubhouse where you can relax after your round of golf, Donnington Grove is the Club for you. I am confident that you will enjoy the experience.

Our course, designed by Ryder Cup player Dave Thomas, offers a fair challenge to all standards of golfer and is regarded as one of the best in the area. It is kept in magnificent condition and boasts fast and true greens that will not disappoint. Having been built to USGA standards, you will not see any temporary greens or tees and with its excellent drainage is playable all year round.

We are an inclusive club with men, women and juniors playing in the same competitions, the one exception being the Club Championships. Our golfing calendar has an extensive variety of medals, Stablefords, major events and knockouts for the competitive golfer at weekends and midweek as well as a full fixture list of matches against other Clubs. However, if you just want to play social golf, that’s fine.

Tee times can be booked up to two weeks in advance with our BRS online booking system and we have no visitors  at weekends before 11am, with the morning tee times reserved for members & your guests only.

Members can enjoy a 10% discount on all food and drink simply by keeping your membership card topped up. This can be done online once you have registered your card or direct at the bar.

You will enjoy the social scene at our Club where we organise a variety of events, some of which include golf. For example every Friday, starting at 4.00pm, we run our very popular Champagne 9-Hole Roll-up. The winners receive a bottle of champagne and many members stay for a discounted meal and the weekly free cash draw and socialise with other members.

We are not the cheapest club in the area but we do offer exceptional value to our members for a club of this standard. Take a look at the many membership benefits in our membership benefits & incentives page. Of particular interest is being able to play for free or at a reduced rate at other clubs with which we have reciprocal arrangements for midweek golf. 

If you want to play our excellent course before deciding whether to join, we ask that you pay a member’s guest green fee, which we will deduct from you fees when you join.

Donnington Grove Golf Club aims to maintain high standards of play and conduct along with friendly, professional values. We offer a wide range of membership options to suit various ages, with visitors and regulars of all ages and abilities catered for. We pride ourselves on our excellent championship Dave Thomas design golf course, facilities and our member’s website with latest news, updates, lively social calendar and regular competitions for the keen golfer.

Helping Young Golfers

As part of a friendly, well run club we believe it is important to encourage and support the next generation of golfers. Our pricing structure and policy help with this aim at every level, not only for children and teens but for young adults who sometimes find the cost of full membership a huge leap. Hence Donnington Grove offer some great discounts across a range of age levels.

If you are over 19 and under 36 years of age you can enjoy full golf club membership at Donnington Grove for a very special price. Our Colt Memberships are designed especially for the younger adult golfer who is perhaps just starting out on their career or has a young family. Many younger golfers find the move from Junior or Colt to full membership unaffordable. This often leads to them giving up the game or playing only occasionally as a visitor. We want to help you through this time as a member of our Club.

Apart from a membership that offers exceptional value, you will find many other benefits of being a Club member at Donnington Grove. For example, we have reciprocal arrangements with other clubs where you can play free. Please see below;
