From ensuring clean suburbs to improving infrastructure, Steyn City’s positive impact extends well beyond its gates.

Steyn City supports the Fourways community-at-large

One of Steyn City’s goals is to benefit not only our residents, but those who live beyond our gates, too. That’s why we are always eager to support our adjacent communities – and our collaboration with Better Fourways gives us a chance to do just that.

Better Fourways was launched with an eye to encouraging community members to play an active role in cleaning up and, ultimately, revitalising their suburb. We’re doing our bit by taking part in clean up campaigns around the Fourways area; plus, from April, we have made a monthly contribution to bolster the organisation’s efforts. It’s an honour to be involved in an initiative of this nature, and we can’t wait to see the difference we make.

Through Better Fourways, we are also partnering with Turfnet to tidy up the centre island between the Indaba Hotel and our estate along Winnie Mandela Drive. Turfnet is sponsoring a tractor while our team adds extra support, relieving much of the burden for brushcutters and labourers.

No more flashing robots

In another exciting move, Steyn City is part of a new collaboration of private entities wishing to put an end to dysfunctional traffic lights. The brainchild of Ward 94 councillor David Foley, the initiative has not yet been finally concluded as David is still awaiting council approval, although all partners have reached an agreement around their roles. By allowing traffic lights along Winnie Mandela Drive, and in time, Cedar Road, to be connected to the uninterrupted power supply of businesses in the vicinity, they’ll be making the area safer for motorists and pedestrians alike, while also putting an end to snarled up traffic jams that take up valuable time and cause significant frustration for those that commute. This has been a major problem during loadshedding, causing significant interruption to the smooth flow of traffic.

K46 nearing completion

We’re also continuing to support the development of infrastructure in the area. Our contribution to the upgrade of key arterial routes has facilitated the final phase extension of the R511 to the N14 with the Rose Interchange, and the final stretch from Diepsloot Mall to the highway, to be significantly progressed. These upgrades will greatly improve connections between Johannesburg, Centurion and Pretoria, in turn boosting our strategic position while making the commute between these key areas far smoother.

Given the backdrop of our 2 000 acre indigenous parkland, it’s not surprising that sustainability is a key priority at Steyn City. Here’s what we’re doing to protect our natural heritage.

Our eco-conscious initiative

We’ve always believed that our parkland is a truly unique feature – and we’re proud that the Johannesburg Wildlife Veterinary Hospital (JWVH) agrees. Last year, the organisation selected Steyn City as a site to rehabilitate sick and injured animals before they are released into the wild, and we are extremely pleased to have already played a role in helping a number of animals of different species return to health. Recently, we have also welcomed 11 hedgehogs to the parkland; an exciting development, as these spiky little creatures play a key role in the ecosystem by controlling pest populations. It’s interesting to know that they are nocturnal foragers, and despite being land-dwellers, they’re excellent swimmers and can take to the water when they need to.

Maintaining our beautiful parkland

The tree canopies in the parkland are expanding each year, causing the lawn beneath to struggle. As a result, you may have noticed that our Landscaping team has been diligently planting more shade-tolerant plants, applying mulch, and introducing ground covers and shrubs in these areas to maintain the appeal of our beautiful green belts as our parkland matures.

From golf to cycling, horse-riding and swimming, Steyn City has all your hobbies covered with a stunning array of facilities – and it keeps getting better. For example, our Club at Steyn has moved up three notches to 14th position on the latest Golf Digest rankings of South Africa’s Top 100 golf courses.

The Club at Steyn City climbs three notches to 14th position in Golf Digest rankings

Fresh off the press, the May-June edition of Golf Digest features the return of the Golf Digest rankings: South Africa’s Top 100 golf courses for 2024. We’re thrilled to announce that our club has climbed three spots in the rankings, now sitting at No. 14 with a score of 78.6 points. This advancement underscores our commitment to excellence, and we’re setting our sights on breaking into the top 10.

Swinging success – our golf membership on the rise!

At the end of 2023, we introduced a new two-tier golf membership, making it possible to sign up for a Gold Membership, which allows members to play at their own convenience with a maximum of 20 rounds per year, or choose a Platinum Membership, where they can enjoy unlimited rounds, as well as a range of family membership options.

It’s been wonderful to see the response to this new membership model,  which has seen a substantial increase in new members of The Club at Steyn City. Given that Steyn City is all about encouraging family time, it’s heartening to see that the family packages have also been warmly welcomed, with many members signing up their spouses to enjoy time on the fairways together.

Going all out on the greens

More good news for The Club at Steyn City: Dylan Naidoo, who was appointed as our first-ever golf touring ambassador in December, is proudly waving the Steyn City flag high. He recently finished in 16th position in the Sunshine Tour’s final Order of Merit. With this finish, he has secured his full Sunshine Tour card for next year and will gain entry into the DP World Tour co-sanctioned events, such as the SA Open.

Steyn City Resident Newsletter - Recreation

He’ll soon be heading to Europe to participate in the European Challenge Tour, the feeder to the DP World Tour. He has gained invites to at least eight events that he’ll be competing in over the next few months. Competition is fierce on this tour, as only the top 20 players qualify for playing rights on the DP World Tour in the next season. Currently, he is ranked 27th on the Challenge Tour. Dylan, we’re rooting for you!

Keep an eye on our track

For all the fans of our off-road mountain bike track, we hope you’re enjoying the latest addition, Mineshaft – a figure of-eight loop located in Phase 2 beyond the polo field adjacent to Pasture Lane. This new segment is also ideal for the 2024 Cycle Lab MTB School Series.

Traditionally exclusive to high schools, the series will now feature new events designed specifically for primary schools. The aim is to involve younger children in this exhilarating sport.

Your peace of mind is our concern, and we’re constantly working to ensure your home is a sanctuary.

More services, more safety and security

We have always believed that our outstanding safety and security measures are among the factors that set Steyn City apart. We have recently expanded on this with the addition of new key services.

Our partnership with Fidelity Secure Fire means that we now have a dedicated 24/7 Rapid Response Fidelity Secure Fire vehicle, with a fully trained fire crew who are also equipped to offer first aid. The team is also able to provide lithium gel fire extinguishers and suppression systems for home solar lithium battery protection. Fidelity Secure Fire has already responded to three incidents on the estate.

Steyn City Resident Newsletter - Safety

Our offering now also includes Specialised Logistics Assistance (SLA) paramedics, on standby 24/7. The team not only mans and maintains our medical room at the Lagoon over peak periods; it’s also on standby at quieter times and assists at our hosted events. This service is invaluable: SLA attends to four to six emergencies monthly, and responded to three minor medical emergencies during the summer.

Keeping abreast of changes

Furthermore, we’re constantly monitoring and looking ahead to keep up with developments in the security industry. With this commitment, we’re working diligently to install new, cutting-edge security systems. These systems will not only enhance your safety but also monitor the movement of visitors’ vehicles throughout the estate and track speeding cars to curb reckless driving.  More on these security measures that are currently being tested and validated in our forthcoming newsletters.

Inaugural Steyn City School Foundation Golf Day – Thursday 23 May

Steyn City School hosted its inaugural golf event at The Club at Steyn City on Thursday, 23 May. This event marked the official launch of the Steyn City School Foundation, which focuses on fundraising for the school’s Bursary Programme.

The golf fundraiser raised money for two bursary students, covering all school costs, including fees, books, a device, a full school uniform, one meal per day, transport, Wi-Fi access, and incidental expenses.

“A bursary student is often seen as a poverty exit point by their family, which is a significant burden to carry,” stated Juliet Glover, Executive Head of Steyn City School. “These students require intensive academic and psycho-social support, including academic remediation, counseling, and therapeutic support.”

Congratulations to all involved in this fundraising event and the foundation’s efforts to provide these important opportunities. These initiatives uplift and support students who would not otherwise be able to attend Steyn City School.

We look forward to seeing this golf day become a fixture in our annual club events calendar and grow in stature.

Introducing our new look website design

Behind the scenes, our teams have been hard at work enhancing our website to provide a sleeker look and feel, along with improved navigation. Choose from various filters, like pricing, size and accommodation requirements, to make your navigation of our developer properties easier than ever before.

Get ready to connect: Our communications are migrating to the Steyn City App

Our new resident app portal is about to go live! From 1 June, the app will become the primary point of communication, while our guest access system will transition to the new app. This new platform also allows more flexibility in adding future functionality.

Joel Mamboka’s first solo exhibit comes to The Gallery at Steyn City – 10 May to 16 June

Whether you’re seeking a one-of-a-kind artwork to enhance your living space or simply wish to have a little culture fix, be sure to visit Joel Mamboka’s exhibition at The Gallery at Steyn City between 10 May and 16 June. The Congolese artist is best known for his exploration of African themes through a blend of traditional aesthetics and contemporary expression. His work around Congo’s vibrant Sapeur culture, observed through incomparably stylish and elegant dress, is a case in point, and his examination of the sociopolitical and cultural origins of this tradition in wax loincloth is a highlight of the exhibition. Trent Read of Knysna Fine Art has endorsed the exhibition, calling his work “eminently collectable”.
