Report from the RGC dated March & April 2011 circulated to all
A letter of concern was sent to the RGC from the SHOA board of AS Immy
Trustees. An official response must be obtained from the RGC that
can be circulated to the Home Owners outlining clear action plans for
addressing any issues.
RW & CN inspected the breakdown of expenses relating to the
maintenance of the course over the past 3 years, as provided by the
RGC. It is evident from the accounts provided, that the 35%
contribution made to the RGC by the HOA does not cover the costs of
expenses to maintain the course. CN & RW conclude that there are
no fund being able to build up at this stage.
The different membership categories were discussed and AS clarifies
that there is no “Senior Membership” in the RGC Constitution and that
it is not a membership category that is open to new members. This is
only an arrangement with existing RGC members. The HOA
contribution of 35% of the monthly levy is only payable by Home
Owners and is not classified as a membership fee. This forms part of
the contract the Home Owners bought in to.
The matter of the trees on the car park pavement was discussed and
a decision was taken to allow the RGC to keep the trees and if any
damage occur the RGC will be liable for said damage. Home owners
will not be allowed to plant any trees on pavements.
The meeting closed at 18h30

Managing Agent Report
23 Jun 2011
The dam water levels are low due to the canal being closed (re-opened Monday 20/06/2011)
and the RGC pumps that are being serviced. Johan Horne confirmed today (23/06/2011) that
the pumps should be back by Friday at the latest or on Monday. I’m not sure if there are any
other issues or if it’s just a general service, LV would probably be best to report on this in his
Areas of Concern regarding landscaping
1. Currently the pavement along the perimeter fence in Sauvignon Street is overgrown
and not landscaped. I’ve asked HK in the short term to just cut the weeds down,
similar to what they do when they do the vacant plot clearance.
Action: A decision to be made on how the pavement must be presented; i.e.
paving, planting of grass or plants etc. If planting is decided access
to water must be established first before anything is planted. There
are 2 completed houses in this road and one under construction.
2. General open/public spaces on the Golf Course
Action: Identify all such spaces and determine who’s responsibility they are.
Establish the standard to which you want them kept.
Water must be made available to all open/public spaces before any
planting can commence.
3. The road verges especially along the 11th and 13th fairways are untidy & overgrown.
The same also goes for the verge along the 18th fairway.
Action: Please clarify who is responsible for the verges adjacent to the golf
course. All such areas to be clearly defined.
Clarify the standard to which you want all verges kept.
A map of the development was produced by the landscaping architect clearly defining areas of
responsibility. Copies are in the HOA office.
4. The pebbled parking areas in the Village are overgrown with weeds.
I suggest that HK sprays it at regular intervals with round up. HOA to supply
5. I would also like to recommend that the Board of Trustees enforce an environmental
plan or garden layout, to be submitted for each house before a garden is established.
This can be kept on the OEMP file. It will enable us to identify problems before they
occur - for example trees planted where it can cause damage to service lines and
planting that is not compliant with the planting list.
Antonette Page 8 01/10/2011
6. The area by the main entrance, on your right as you enter the estate is SHOA land
and vacant and also untidy. A suggestion has been made to use the area as a
“nursery” for the estate.
Action: Water needs to be made available.
We can sell the plants to Home owners at a nominal fee to cover cost
of operations. (Labour & Water)
Establish the standards to which the nursery has to operate so that it
will enhance the estate as a whole and not look untidy.
Please find below a copy from a letter to MB from LV regarding the water. I think we need to
pay urgent attention to getting the water issues resolved. I’ve left this in from the last report.
Ek het weereens die hele aangeleentheid van water met die gholfkomitee bespreek en meer in besonders met oom
Nando Baard. Om die regte besluite te neem moet ons alle feite op die tafel plaas en ek is besig met die
Die volgende is toegelaat in die verlede maar ek kan geen dokumentasie hieroor kry nie en weetook nie of
“bestuur” dit kon gedoen het sonder die goedkeuring van die gholfklub komitee of SSHO. Help vir my asb. indien u
enige inligting aangaande die volgende het?
Wie het toestemming gegee vir koppelings uit die Gholfbaan se besproeiingsstelsel vir die privaatgebruik
by die huis op putjie no.3 en putjie 10 en 11?
Deur wie is die koppelings en pypleidings goedgekeur?
By die “townhouses” by putjie 10 – Wie het besluit dat areas wat nie op gholfbaan grond is nie besproei
kan word vanaf “valves” vanaf die gholfbaan?
Daar loop „n 40mm pyp vanaf bof 5 na die “Day Visitors area” en die kraan word gereeld oopgedraai en
geen watergebruik hier word gemonitor nie. Hoe het die situasie ontstaan?
Volgens die kontrak wat bestaan ontvang die gholfbaan water vir 32.40 ha water en Silwerstrand Dev.
Company water vir 4.30 ha. My logiese afleiding is dat die 4.30 ha water vir die village is.
Wat was die reeling met die gholfklub oor die verskaffing van water aan die “Village‟?
Wie is verantwoordelik vir die pomp van die water in die tuine van die “Village”? Moet dit van die gholfklub
se pompstasie geskied of moes die village hulle eie water pomp?
Wat is die kapasiteit van die dammein die “Village” en kan hulle daaglikse kwota in die damme stoor?
Wanneer is die koppeling gedoen vanaf die eerste setperk na die oorkant van die pad?
My huidiglike begrip van die water situasie is dat die gholfbaan water het vir 32.4 ha en die village vir 4.3 ha. Dit is
die gholfklub se plig om te sorg dat die village die water kry en daarom was my voorstel dat „n watermeter
aangebring word sodat die kwota gelewer word. Ons sal ons water moet beter beheer en gebruik. Die kostes
verbonde aan waterverskaffing (elektrisiteit en “maintenance) ka nook dan beter beheer en bepaal word. Onthou
daar is sekere tye wat ons glad nie of baie minder besproei.
My onderneming aan die gholfkomitee was om „n volledige oudit van die water te doen soda tons die bron
maksimaal kan benut tot voordeel van die hele ontwikkeling. Ek sien dit in die volgende fases:
Fase 1 – Skoonmaak van alle pype en vervanging van spreiers (die fase is so pas voltooi teen „n koste van
R 200 000.00
Fase 2 – Bepaal hoeveel water op die gholfbaan neergesit gedurende die aand siklus. (besig – Bergrivier
Fase 3 – Hoeveel water kan ons gedurende die dag gebruik om te verseker dat ons genoeg water in die
dam het om die aand te besproei
Fase 4 – Verseker dat die water wat by die sluis inloop ons regte kwota is. Installeer tregter i.p.v. pyp wat
huidiglik lug suig ( sal nou gedoen word)
Fase 5 – Installeer drup besproeiingstelsel vir al die bome en sorg dat water op die regte tye geallokeer
word – Junie/Julie 2011
Antonette Page 9 01/10/2011
Betrokke partye sal op hoogte gehou word en ek sal waardeer dat alle inligting versamel word sodat ons kan
besluit op die pad vorentoe.
Dankie vir julle samewerking!
Another incident occurred where a tenant did not stop at the Village gate at around 6pm in the
evening. She proceeded to drive through a gate that had started closing and subsequently it
caused damage to her car. She has written an email where she expects the HOA to claim for
the damage to her car from the SHOA insurance. Your advice required. We have of course set
a president by paying out a previous claim. The gate is not faulty and the guard on duty did
wave the lady down to stop, but she just carried on regardless.
During a site visit with Rejeanne Botha on 20/06/2011 the following suggestions are made for
both the main security gate and the Village entrance gate.
1. Paint stop signs on the road at the exit and entry points.
(2x at Village/2x Main gate)
2. Place a notice on the gate to stop and wait for gate to open before proceeding
(2x at Village gate/2x Main gate)
3. An up-light placed on the inside of the gates to light up the gates when vehicles exit the
(1x at Village gate/1x Main gate)
1. All stop signs to be painted on roads in Village and on Golf Course.
2. It has been reported that owners/guests drive their cars onto the grassed riverbank -
they gain access to the front of the river town houses between the last town house
(Village way 88 and the vacant plots)
3. The workshop gate (entrance for RGC workers from workshop)
- please clarify is his is a permanent access gate.
- the electrical cable (in plastic tubing) is running above ground from the small
electrical box to the gate motor. Clarify if this is the correct standard?
- the electrical box cover has broken off - RB to buy new box and replace to
prevent water/elements damage - SHOA to pay for material?
- 2 curbing stones left by the side of the road, near the gate?
- RGC to sweep the road in front of the gate daily to leave it clean from sand/dirt.
Contractors - Areas of Concern
1. The contractors’ entrance is causing an eye-sore at the main entrance gate. This is
made worse on rainy days. The mud is driven into Silwerstrand Boulevard right by
the main entrance. The curbs are damaged due to the heavy delivery vehicles (10x
curbs needs replacing.)
Suggestions: In the short term - relay the contractors’ road so that they exit in the
side road and then enter Silwerstrand Boulevard by turning right at
the stop sign. At least most of the mud will be out of the eye.
Antonette Page 10 01/10/2011
Place some kind of protective ramps over the curbs to ensure they are
not damaged any further. I would also suggest that each contractor
place protective ramps at their building site and only use those
designated areas to gain access on to the erf for the purposes of
deliveries etc. Alternatively the SHOA to enforce a “no driving onto
the erf” policy, and deliveries must be made from the roadside.
Medium to Long term: Will this be a permanent gate?
If yes, a proper structure must be built to fit with the rest of the
estate and a proper road must be laid on to grant access to
At the moment the electricity cable is running over-ground from the
contractors’ gate to the main entrance gate. This is a potential Health
& Safety risk.
From a security management point of few, and on recommendation from RB, that all
contractors only use this gate as entry point and not the main security gate. This will relieve
the congestion, especially in the mornings when the contractors have to be signed in and their
people checked. The same in the evenings when they leave, they use the contractors’ gate and
security can control that all workers brought in are taken out again.
The contractors’ fines are a source of income for the home owners and should be maximized.
All contractors that are currently building have been warned on many occasions. I think the
SHOA should take a tougher stance and only issue fines in the future and these fines should be
issued on a daily basis until compliance from the contractors are consistently obtained.
Outstanding balance from MB.
Balance of R10 100 to the DVA
Balance of R25 964.63 form the Caravan Park for water & electricity
Exceptional items for May 2011
Line 40: Paid R2223 for the landscaping architect to produce maps of estate
Line 66: Paint/Materials to repair & paint Village entrance
I’m looking for quotes for a printer/scanner/copier (3-in-1) for the SHOA. The printer I’m using
currently is very expensive in ink and is not ideal. Also it cannot scan or copy.
Feedback from the solicitors regarding the legal action against the person that caused the
damage to the perimeter fence, is to wait for the outcome of the court case against him for
reckless driving and causing damage to property. They have sent a letter of demand to the
guy. According to reports from RB the police are waiting on a court date. The solicitor cost is
R3000 deposit and R800 per hour to take on the case.
During the site visit I’ve compiled a list of homes that are not complying with the standards of
the estate. Specifically, garden refuse dumped on vacant plots next to homes, rubbish stored
Antonette Page 11 01/10/2011
in site of the main road etc. I will speak to all these home owners during the following weeks
and if we cannot reach an amicable agreement on how to go forward then I’ll copy you in on
letters of warning etc.
I do however feel that the issue with Mr Papenfus’ house is something that is above my remit
and I feel that the Chairman or the Board as a collective need to write to Mr Papenfus,
regarding the paving in front of this house and the fence facing the golf course.
Standards of painting and upkeep of houses and townhouses.
Action: A decision to be made to the standard of woodwork and paint work and
then communicated to the Home owners with a clear time scale of when
work should be completed
Another concern is the house on erf 7043 where building work has come to a standstill for the
past 12 months. It creates a very poor impression to prospective buyers and visitors. Is there
nothing else, apart from the penalty levy that we can use to encourage the owners to complete
the house or at least make the property water tight and then lock up until further notice?

Report from Robertson Golf Club
Bestuurdersverslag – Maart & April 2011
Die AJV is gehou op 31 Maart 2011 en die hele komitee is herkies behalwe dat Magda Vorster verkies is
as dameskapteine en Carel Cloete in die portefeulje van Finansies. Dankie aan Phillip Retief en Nina
Kriel vir hul bydrae oor die afgelope paar jaar. Twee veranderings is aan die konstitusie aangebring
naamlik die betalingsperiode van subskripsie en Lidmaatskap kategoriee.
Die oudit is gedoen deur BAS rekenmeesters en alhoewel die Klub in „n baie beter finansiele
posisie verkeer as verlede jaar dieselfde tyd wys daar nog „n verlies van R 329 429.89.
Kontantvloei is aansienlik beter maar ongelukkig moes die omtrent R 200 000.00 in die
spaarrekening gespandeer word aan besproeiing – die vervanging van sproeiers.
Behalwe die drie lenings van die klub was daar nog ook geld aan Global Golf verskuldig vir
“Furniture & Fittings”. Die drie gholfkarre is ook van hulle oorgekoop teen „n bedrag van R 10
000.00 + BTW. Ongelukkig moes ons ook nog twee stele nuwe batterye teen R 18 500.00 vir die
karre aankoop. RGK besit nou nege gholfkarre van ons eie en huur nog vier karre by EZGO.
Oom Wouter de Wet se gholfkar is ook aan die klub geskenk en ons wag nog vir batterye vir die
kar wat ons op die baan gaan gebruik
Subskripsies kom teen „n redelike spoed in en ons het al omtrent R 300 000.00 ontvang.
Onrusbarend is dat ons masjinerie al hoe meer geld kos (herstelwerk) en kwotasies is alreeds van
CSE ontvang en ons is besig met „n vervangingsprogram.
Subskripsie het „n bietjie later ingekom as waarvoor begroot is weens die feit dat fooie eers by die
AJV vagestel is en begroting sal aangepas word.
Die Klub toon „n wins vir Maart en April maar ons het „n paar groot kapitale uitgawes gehad wat
nie in die vorige en huidige begroting was nie. Ons sal moet „n fonds opbou om nuwe toerusting
Die klub se bates lyk beter maar onthou die leeftyd van voertuie is beperk.
Alle spreiers is volgens Johann Horne nou vervang en die eerste fase van ons oudit is nou voltooi.
Ons kyk nou of die regte hoeveelhede water neergesit word en nat kolle word aangespreek.
Besproeing vir bome sal gedurende die wintemaande ingesit word na aanleiding van „n behoorlike
plan. Baankomitee sal ook hier betrek word.
Dreinering word ingesit en is reeds by die tweede setperk gedoen.
Volgens my is daar verskeie plekke waar dreinering nog ingesit moet word en dit sal gedurende
die wintermaande aangespreek word.
Die vier nuwe waterpunte is klaar en ons is besig met afloop pype en om mooi te maak.
Daar is twee keer gespuit vir molkrieke en „n opvolg spuit sal Aug/Sept gedoen word
Daar is gespuit vir Poa – skoonvelde, semi-rof en om die setperke
Kunsmis is gespuit op die bowwe en sekere swak kolle op die baan. Daar is besluit dat ons
kunsmis sal gooi aan die begin van die groei seisoen.
Skoonvelde is geverti-cut en snysels is gegooi op kaal kolle sodat areas kan toe groei (putjie 16)
Swamme op die skoonvelde kom voor en ons spuit huidiglik daarvoor.
Antonette Page 13 01/10/2011
Die Pro Shop:
Baanfooie vir Maart was beter as begroting alhoewel April weer „n bietjie laer was. Skryf dit toe aan die
vakansie en baie publieke vakansiedae en dat mense nog steeds hul luukshede moet beperk.Dit is nog heel
binne die begroting en die Pro Shop het goeie verkope gedurende April gewys en vir die eerste keer kon
die inkomste die kostes van die Pro Shop dek.
Wonderfontein borg weereens ons tellingkaarte en die bestelling is geplaas. Dankie aan Riaan vir sy hulp.
Gholfkarretjies is besig om „n Facelift te kry deur dit ordentlik skoon te maak en om alle gebreekte parte
Sieg skakel goed in en help by alle fasette van die klub (afrigting, Pro Shop, bemarking, kroeg, baan en
admin.) Lesse is huidiglik maar stil maar ons het begin met “Sundowners” vir die kinders.
Gedurende die wintermaande word die spankompetisie, interklub kompetisies, familiedag en boeredag
bemark. Die tweede Brodiespan vaar redelik goed en le tweede op die “log” sowel as die BBL.
Pakette vir die wintermaande is saamgestel en word by verskillende klubs en op website bemark;
Maandelikse nuusbriewe aan ons lede met spesiale pakette en promosies;
Wacky Wine gholfdag – 3 -5 Junie 2011 / Sundowner en Geborgde dag
Lidmaatskap werwingsveldtog – on going. Pakette met nuwe Pro asook insentiewe vir lede om
nuwe lede te werf. (gratis les, gratis rondtes, ens.)
Food & Beverage:
Maandelikse funksie is afgestel weens te min kaartjie verkope en belangstelling. Het die hulp van
die komitee nodig maar ons gaan weer aand reel. Prys bietjie goedkoper maak en jongmanne vra
om te help.
Sara aangestel as kroegdame. Gaan redelik goed maar Jenny se kontroles in kroeg is nie na wense
nie. Sieg gaan meer betrokke raak en help met die kontroles en kyk of hy „n verskil kan maak.
Een van die dames in die kombuis sal teen die einde van die maand “geretrench” word.
Van die lede het „n probleem gehad dat daar geld op die kaart moet gelaai word om afslag te kry.
Verskeie skrywes en inligting is aan die lede gestuur en die sisteem werk al hoe beter. Lede voel
ook dat afslag geskrap word en dat drankpryse verlaag word. Drank en kospryse moet vir lid of
besoeker dieselfde wees.
Weens die feit dat ons aankope nie teen kosprys is nie en nie op groot maat aankope doen en
“cater” nie is dit meer „n diens wat die Klub lewer as iets anders. Die situasie sal verbeter en groei
saam met die “Estate”.
Tuine lyk volgens my goed en het verskeie plante aangeplant. Michael werk goed en is
betroubaar. Wil roosbome nog op die wal aanplant en klippies voor klub gooi.
Later nog perdemis inwerk na winter.
