This time of year is wonderfully exciting as Spring arrives and brings with it the promise of warmer weather and new beginnings. The Estate comes to life with new growth, blooming flowers, and lush greenery on the golf course which paints a vivid picture of the changing season and the vibrant atmosphere it brings. This revitalizing energy is felt by everyone, creating a sense of renewal and positivity. We look forward to our upcoming AGM (Annual General Meeting) as well as the many exciting events planned for the rest of the year.
Thank you to our caring community!
We thank our community for supporting those in their time of need. Unfortunately, our onsite FSS Security Manager, Mr. Rector Manyama, suffered the tragic loss of his wife during the birth of his beautiful daughter Princess. He sent this heartfelt note:
Appreciation to all the Samaritans who reached out when in need to assist me during the difficult time after the passing of my wife and leaving a precious baby born girl who will be a reminder of my wife’s last day as well as my daughter’s birthday.
I would like to send my gratitude of appreciation to all the Dainfern Homeowners Association staff and Dainfern Golf Estate residents who showed much support and for keeping me and my family in their prayers, donating baby items, and the funds into my account. I was able to arrange and bury my wife in a dignified manner and our baby girl Princess Dinah Manyama is fine and healthy. Appreciation for all your support throughout these difficult times and may God bless you all.

Successful holiday clinics hosted in August
In the August holiday we offered a variety of activities in the form of clinics including soccer, cricket, dancing, tennis, and golf on different days. It was a great way to engage young people in active and enjoyable pursuits during their break. Not only did it provide them with opportunities to learn and improve their skills in different sports and activities, but it also helped them to stay active and socialise with others. It is evident that the convenience of the holiday clinics had a positive impact on both the youngsters and their parents, creating a win-win situation for everyone involved.
SANBS Blood Dive
We hosted another blood drive at the Clubhouse, and we know the South African National Blood Service (SANBS) was very appreciative of the lifesaving blood donations.
On the golfing front we hosted the Dainfern Masters on 19 and 20 August. Congratulations to all the winners. We thank the members that played in the tournament and made it a successful event, and it would not have been possible without our Sponsors – Hailo, Extraordinary Luxury Lodges and Hotels, SIX33, Golferade, Stella Artois, House of Print and Global Golf Retail. Heading into Spring and Summer, the golf course will be much busier in the coming months as we have several golf days booked.

With August being Women’s Month, we partnered with the Impilo Collection Foundation to collect bras for women against GBV. We had two collection boxes and were overwhelmed with the generosity of our residents – thank you very much for supporting such a worthy cause. We also hosted Nikki Bush as a guest speaker at a wonderful motivational talk “Which Jacket are you wearing now”. The attendees were spoilt with treats throughout the morning as well as a few lucky draws too. It was very special to celebrate the awesome women of Dainfern Golf Estate.
In the past two months our maintenance teams have unblocked 16 sewers inhouse, assisted JoBurg Water with unblocking 11 sewers, repaired 54 streetlights, traced, and repaired 5 electrical faults, sorted out 5 manholes, done 35 general maintenance repairs at the Clubhouse, 8 golf cart path repairs, and done 18 pothole repairs. The Trent Stream project and 6th dam de-silting are among many tasks the team completed achieving great results.
A huge achievement with our Maintenance Team is their ability to overcome obstacles and shortcomings when it comes to skills development. The department has gone from basic maintenance to professional contractor level skills and are still being developed daily. In the past year, the team have prepared all foundation works, curbing, or edging in more than one of our current projects.
