Caswell Pines Golf Club

Caswell Pines Golf Club, voted “Best Golf Course” of 2017 in the Caswell Messenger’s Readers’ Choice Awards, provides a great golf experience and meeting place for every visitor. The 156-acre golf and residential community established in 1993 is, you guessed it…. filled with majestic pines that line the fairways. Several homes overlook the course but never crowd golfers. The course is located just outside of Yanceyville, NC. and hosts golfers from nearly a 100-mile radius.




General Manager Mike Cochran believes that the best feature of the course is the layout. His favorite holes are Nos. 13 and 18 because of the risk / reward they present to golfers at every level. Daily greens fees are inviting but yearly memberships can be had as well. The championship course features bentgrass greens and Bermuda fairways and plays 6900 yards from the back tees. Fairways are very generous for those that both draw as well as fade the ball.

And there is no excuse to play poorly because their well-maintained range and putting green provide everything you need for your pre-round tune up. You can also find all of the essentials from shirts to balls at their pro-shop.




Golfers and guests alike need nourishment and the grill provides more than just hot dogs during the week. Specials often include hot entrees, so savoring lunch with a friend in the nicely appointed seating area should go on your to-do list for sure. While you are planning, consider their 3000 square-foot banquet facility for your next meeting, reception or catered event.






The course is only 18 minutes almost directly west of Hyco Lake at 2380 Country Home Rd, Blanch, NC 27212. This course is closest to my home and is always a pleasure to play. I love their practice facilities when I don’t have time to play a full round and their grill serves as a great place for lunch for a foursome or more. There is a good bit of up and down on the course but landing areas don’t penalize a reasonably struck tee-ball. Call them at 336-694-2255 for a tee time or visit for more details on the course, their facilities, and home sites too.
