Set on the edge of the Rakaia Gorge amidst the quiet solitude of the countryside and against a backdrop of the Southern Alps Terrace Downs is a course that offers an amazing golfing experience with unsurpassed mountain and river views. The course provides a challenge to the best golfers, yet is still enjoyable for high handicappers. It is a fair course that rewards a good shot and penalises a bad one, a course that inspires delights and creates a sense of exhilaration on every tee and a course that harmonises with and enhances the natural beauty of the surrounding landscape. Terrace Downs is a course which has gained a fantastic reputation in New Zealand golfing circles.
