Golf holidays for you to relax while keeping the whole family happy

Whether you want a weekend away in with friends or some quality family time exploring Canterbury, we can cater to golf holidays of all designs. We offer luxury accommodation so you can wake up every morning to the sight of the lush green plains draped in breath-taking scenery, and finish every day with stunning views of the sun setting on the glimmering lake as you enjoy a spot of fine dining in the clubhouse.

Along with the course, a driving range is available for practice before your round, or just as a fun family activity. We also offer a range of other activities to indulge in such as horse riding, skiing, and archery!

All motorised golf cart drivers must be over 18 years of age and possess a current driver’s license, unless supervised by an adult.

Play on one of the country’s most exquisite golf courses

Situated just 1 hour from Christchurch in the heart of the Canterbury high country, Terrace Downs Golf Resort is one of New Zealand’s most unique golfing landscapes. Designed by Sid Puddicombe, the 18-hole par 72 course has a varied hole design making the golfers strategic choices all the more important. The Parkland style front 9 course is sheltered with a ‘Woodland’ feel whilst the links style back 9 course is described as having a ‘Scottish’ feel with its open setting.

The high country setting means that the changeable weather patterns can add to the drama of a round. The high country views of our neighbouring mountain ranges and river canyons mean a camera is an essential piece of equipment in your golf bag.
