Terrace Downs offers a choice of two deluxe accommodation options. Terrace Villa Suites are self-contained units with luxurious beds, a delightful raised spa bath and spacious open-plan living areas. There are 13 Villa Suites in the accommodation pool ranging from one to three bedroom suites, and the Patiti Suite, the family villa.
Chalets are separate architecturally designed four to seven bedroom houses spread out amongst the front nine holes of the golf course. These beautiful chalets boast all modern conveniences and great indoor-outdoor living areas with stunning views over the golf course to Mt Hutt.
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 golfer to the aspiring professional. Terrace Downs Golf Resort is ranked as one of New Zealand’s top five for layout and is the only high country golf 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 with its open and tranquil setting, is described as having a ‘Scottish’ feel.
Since its official opening in 2001, the course has continually received countless international and national accolades.
Along with the golf course, a driving range is available for practice before your round, or just as a fun family activity.
The spectacular Terrace Downs Clubhouse is home to two restaurants.
The Cafe offers delicious casual all-day dining in a warm and welcoming atmosphere complimented by stunning mountain views and a roaring fire during the winter.
