Terrace Hills Golf Course is a Public 18 hole golf course located in Altoona, Iowa.

Terrace Hills Golf Course first opened for play in 1964. The course was designed by Joe and Clara Riding.

Terrace Hills Golf course is a Third Generation Family Owned and Operated Golf Facility. Joe and Clara Riding purchased the golf course grounds in 1960. After several years of farming the decision was made to build a nine-hole golf course. Joe Riding Sr., along with Clara's tireless support, designed and constructed the original nine holes during the summer of 1963 and spring of 1964. The first rounds were played on July 6th 1964. As golf grew in popularity it became necessary to build another nine holes. In 1968 construction of another nine holes began. Once again Joe and Clara Riding worked many long hours and Terrace Hills Golf Course became an eighteen-hole facility in the fall of 1969.

Par for the Terrace Hills Golf Course is 71. From the back tees the course plays to 6421 yards. From the forward tees the course measures 4968 yards. The longest hole on the course is # 15, a par-5 that plays to 507 yards. The shortest hole on the course is # 17, a par-3 that plays to 160 yards from the back tees.

Watch out for # 10, a 405 yard par-4 challenge and the #1 handicap hole on the course. The easiest hole is # 15, the 507 yard par-5.

Bob Castelline of Altoona, IA says :
Joe Riding and his staff do a nice job at this family-owned public course. It won't win any prizes for difficulty, and some holes are not my favorite as far as layout, but it's a nice little course that has made a nice comeback after the droughts of last year. The Riding family has been serving this area for about 40 years, so they know how to run a smooth operation.

Pros: Condition of Course, Price, No Houses on Course, Pace of Play
Cons: Difficulty, Layout
Would Travel: 0-10 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
Bottom Line: I would play again
