Terrace Downs

Terrace Downs is rated as one of the top courses in New Zealand. Based at the foothills of the Southern Alps, there are very few scenic alpine courses like it. The course offers a unique mixture of parklands and links style with views of the Rakaia Gorge and nearby mountain ranges. At par 72, the course is challenging. However, a choice of four tees on each hole ensures the course caters for a range of golfing abilities.
