Based at the foothills of the Southern Alps, there are few scenic alpine courses like it. The golf course at Terrace Downs is fun and challenging for all golfers, from the first time novice to the aspiring professional. Discover just what it is that makes Terrace Downs such a popular venue when it comes to golf courses in Christchurch and the entire Canterbury region!
Situated in Christchurch in the heart of Canterbury, Terrace Downs Golf Resort is ranked as one of New Zealand’s top five golf clubs for its course layout and is the only high country course to make the grade. Designed by Sid Puddicombe, the 18-hole par 72 championship course is 6,406m (7,006yds) long. The Parkland style front 9 course is sheltered with a ‘Woodland’ feel. The links style back 9 course is described as having a ‘Scottish’ feel with its open and tranquil setting.
