Terrace Downs Resort is situated in the spectacular High Country in Canterbury, New Zealand with Mt Hutt being its backdrop. It’s only a one hour drive from Christchurch International Airport, which makes it secluded yet accessible for National and International guests.
They offer Luxury accommodation with spectacular views, a round of golf on one of New Zealand’s top courses, you can enjoy delicious meals, and enjoy exciting activities ranging from horseback riding to sky diving and of course you can pamper yourself or your partner in the indulgent day spa.
Winning the award means a lot for the future of Terrace Downs Resort, over the last couple of years since the new owners purchased the Resort, they have been focussed on improving and maintaining the golf course to a high level, improving the standards of the culinary options, and working on improving the standard of the resort on whole.
They have plans in motion that will benefit all future guests that visit the resort.
Just this year Terrace Downs Resort has increased its brand awareness in New Zealand by sponsoring the New Zealand Men’s Davis Cup Team and supporting other local Tennis organisations, and due to this they plan to improve the Tennis facilities at the Resort early next year.
This is also a great achievement for the Canterbury area with Clearwater Golf Course also winning the Best Golf Course award.

Having won this award Terrace Downs Resort hopes it will increase the awareness of Canterbury Golf on a more global stage and attract more visitors from further afield, so they can experience the beauty that New Zealand offers.
