Fantastic Fridaze

July has been a month of activity starting with our Fantastic Fridaze on 1 July at the Clubhouse. It was well supported, and a lot of fun was had by all who attended. Even though it was a cold evening, the music, food and entertainment ensured that everyone enjoyed themselves.
Congratulations to Gary Cummings who won a bottle of Bellingham and the lucky draw of R6 000, as well as Natalie Beveridge who won the R1 000 SIX33 voucher on the night. We look forward to this monthly event which takes place on the first Friday of every month.

Tennis Inc

Tennis Inc hosted their Wimbledon weekend on 2 and 3 July where they converted the pavilion field into grass tennis courts. Juniors and adults enjoyed two days of tennis – Wimbledon Style – and even had strawberries and cream and cucumber sandwiches. Everyone dressed in white and had a superb tennis experience.

#Estate Challenge

Mandela Day was hosted on Monday 18 July with an exciting #Estate Challenge hosted by Stratdigi. Fourways Gardens, Cedar Lakes and Dainfern Golf Estate entered a challenge to see who could pack the most Jars of Hope to win the Trophy for ‘Estate of Hope 2022’.
We are proud to say that we are tie with Fourways Gardens. Each Estate will be allocated R5 000 to donate to the charity of their choice and will share the Trophy for six months each. We are thrilled to have assisted packing over 3 000 jars to feed 12 000 people. Thank you to everyone who prepared, planned, organised, sponsored, supported, cleaned, and packed on the day.
Dainfern is certainly an Estate that truly cares! Teamwork makes the dream work!

Thank you to Peet Trollip

I would like to thank Peet Trollip for being the Interim General Manager over the past few months. Peet has done a phenomenal job in addition to his existing role of being the Security Manager too. I congratulate him on his appointment as the COO and look forward to working closely with him.

New Director of Golf

We said farewell to Tim Steynberg at the end of June as he looked at broadening his horizons and we welcomed Dean Kupferman as our new Director of Golf. We are thrilled to have Dean onboard, as many of you would know him from the Pro Shop where he previously worked for Global Golf. Dean is a PGA Professional and has a wealth of experience. We wish him everything of the best in his new role.

A Clear Directive from the Board

I have been here for a month already and am very excited to have joined the Dainfern family. I have a clear directive from the Board and am working hard with my team to ensure the smooth running of this beautiful Estate.
