HO WATER comes from taps By Sue Miles
That’s what an amazing amount of people think. And an equal amount of people do not check their Municipal accounts to see where their money goes. Perhaps people on this Estate have so much money that they do not question the amounts they are billed for. They also do not realise that, despite the storms that periodically wreck our golf course, South Africa is an arid country. I’m sure the Municipality must be pleased to see how many suckers there are here and treat us as cash cows.
70% water, but 97% of that is salt water, which leaves just 3% fresh water. Of that 3% only 1% is used for keeping us alive – the rest is in the form of ice at the Poles. South Africa receives 492mm. per year of water, whereas the rest of the world has 985mm. per year. This comprises rainfall mainly. At the moment Gauteng uses 1,700 cubic metres of water per person per year, but at the rate of usage and with a growing population, that figure will shrink to 1,000 cubic metres by the year 2025! That’s only 13 years away!
We all like to keep our properties in top condition – it looks good, and we are proud of what we have spent our money on. Part of this ‘conditioning’ is keeping our driveways clean. This is usually done by our gardener, or handyman. He is told to clean the driveway and he does, by turning on the hosepipe and standing there for the next half hour with a hose in one hand and a cigarette or cellphone in the other – it’s much easier than getting a broom and he doesn’t have to pay the bills!
All the more reason for us to nurture our resources. Those of us with gardens use an average of 46% of our water on the garden. That is not to say that we should stop watering our gardens, especially if we grow our own vegetables, BUT, there is a horrifying 54% which is used for ‘other’. In other words, that 54% which is going down the stormwater drains is being used by someone who is busy flushing the cement out of the cracks which hold your driveway together.
Just a few facts that might jolt people into thinking about our water. As most people know, the Earth is
Let us take a new look at our Municipal bills, and regulate the usage of our water. It IS a scarce resource.
Facts about paper There seems to be a lethargy in the Estate about recycling paper. Each time I write an article about the amount of paper collected from your properties, it seems to be a dreary tale of the same old figures between the three areas, with little change in the proportion. As it seems to matter so little, except to the committed few, about the amount of paper collected, I have decided to suspend the small competition between the areas. There was no difference to speak of month by month. I have, however, collected a few facts about paper recycling. I last did this about two years ago, and I think it was greeted with a collective yawn, but maybe the personnel has changed and we shall see an interest again. I N TERFACE • JU NE 2 012 • pg 6
With 1 million tonnes of paper recycled, 20 to 30 thousand people are employed. The average person uses 50kg of paper each year. Recycling one tonne saves 17 trees from being cut down; 26 cubic metres of water; 2.3 cubic metres of landfill; 320 litres of oil; and 4, 100 kwh of electricity, which would provide power for the average home for one year! 35% of Municipal waste comprises paper or paper products. By 2007 Europe had achieved a 64.5% recycling target of paper. Recycling causes 35% less water pollution and
By Sue Miles
74% less air pollution than pulping virgin wood. With our concern about water pollution coming from the mines, spare a thought for the other causes. It is also said that the next World War will be fought, not because of politics or land acquisition, but over the availability of water. Please do not forget that a small amount of money from the Mondi recycling areas goes, in our case, to our local Hospice and to the S.P.C.A. I hope this article will jolt the consciences of those who cannot be bothered to collect their waste paper, and that we will see a marked increase in orange bags on the pavements on the dates which I provided you within the last Interface.
OME OWNERS Fishing Regulations 2012 Erf No:ASS 1603 1 Only residents will be entitled to a fishing permit. The times will be from 18h30 to 21h30 – no overnight camping will be allowed.

REPORT CAPTAIN’s report The past month has been a hive of activity which included welcoming professionals from all over the country to participate in the Annual PGA Championships held here at our club. After four days of golf we took the golden opportunity of asking these seasoned golfers to participate in the same survey that is used in certain golfing publications. While the compliments rolled in the survey results were very warming and it is my pleasure to say that our course was rated an average of 674 out of 800 i.e. 85.25% which while not on a par with the official ratings, does encourage us to continue striving for more. Thanks to all who made their way to Centurion and congratulations to Rudy Whitfield from Glendower who won the play-off to take the honours. At the annual golf AGM we bid farewell to Rodney Rae who served his term on the committee with much enthusiasm. Rodney has moved on to pastures greener and we wish him and his family the very best. At the same meeting we established amongst other things that I would remain on as Captain for the year before handing over the reins to either, Haymish McKee or newly elected Jacques Wickens at the next opportunity. It’s great to have Jacques and Dee Meredith join us and we look forward to fresh ideas that will up the effort put in by the committee in the interests of our very prestigious club. Before I share a bit more about our reigning club champion, Jacques Kruyswijk, I’d like to draw your attention to a notice posted in the Interface this month regarding Rules for Home Owners on the Use of the Golf Course. Please read carefully and appreciate that these rules deserve your respect. Now a bit more about Jacques Kruyswijk whose future we are excited to be a part of. BR: What is your earliest memory of golf? JK: My earliest memory of golf was the first time I stood with a club in hand with my dad next to me on Drakensig golf club’s 1st tee. I was about 8 years old. BR: Who/What inspires you?
renowned course in the world; Augusta National. BR: What advice do you have for aspiring young...er golfers? JK: My advice to upcoming younger golfers would be to practise very hard, work on every aspect of your game, set yourself goals and try step by step to achieve them. Get your mind-set to be the best and one day you could live out that honour.
MONTHLY MEDAL – April 2012 Men’s: A Division 1st 2nd
R Massie C Green
BR: What do you enjoy doing when you’re not on the course?
JK: I love gyming and staying active and fit. I love fishing and hanging out with good friends.
BR: What does winning the Club Champs at Centurion mean to you?
JK: I am very proud and honoured to be the Club Champ at Centurion Country Club and also to be associated with the club itself. I joined the club early March 2012, after seeing how friendly and professional the people are at CCC and the course being one of the best in the Gauteng area. It was a big challenge to become the Club Champion before the tournament, as there are very good golfers associated with the club. After posting a 68 in round one and to share the lead, I knew I had to step up my game the next day, to be victorious. All round a great organised tournament and all thanks to Centurion Country Club, hopefully this will be a great stepping stone for the future to come in my golfing career.

JK: Camillo Villegas - The inspiration that drives me. He is not the No. 1 golfer in the world, but the most disciplined and fittest golfer in the world. He is very hard working in all aspects of the game, and is determined to become the best and I can see a lot of myself in him. BR: Where do you see yourself in 10 years from now? JK: I see myself playing on the biggest tour in the world - the PGA Tour - living out my dream as a professional golfer. BR: If you could play in the ideal four ball who would it be and where? JK: Ideal 4 ball would be - Tiger Woods, Jack Nicklaus and my dad, playing on the most

REPORT y d CAPTAIN’s report
The golf committee’s AGM was held at the club on 25 April 2012. I would like to welcome Dee Meredith to our committee, I am looking forward to the next two years working with Dee as I know she has a lot to offer the ladies section of Centurion CC. Our Ladies Open was held on 3 May 2012 and it was a very successful day, 72 ladies took part. We were treated to a foot/hand or head massage on the patio after our round of golf by some very professional therapists from the Vusalela Day Spa who also kindly sponsored a full day treatment voucher for our Ladies Open. Christine Vermaak from 5th Avenue Jewellery donated two prizes. We were also fortunate to have Carol-Anne from the Jean Avenue Spar donate a prize as well as nearest the pin prizes and she treated all our caddies with a Spar hamper. Jannes donated each lady a CCC logo golf ball on arrival. Thanks to all our sponsors. Amarille and her staff once again went all out and served a fantastic lunch; the dining room looked stunning, thanks so much, there was nothing but praise from all the ladies that took part. The Ladies Open was won by our very own mother and daughter team Anna Skinner and Dalene Smith on 46 points, this is a very special win for Anna and Dalene as Dalene is going to be relocating to the UK soon, so it will hold special memories for them both I am sure. Second place - Olga Zorgmann and Lynne Liebenberg from Waterkloof CC with 44 points, 3rd place - Ida Mabaso and Shardi with 43 points o.c.o and 4th place - Rona Agors and Many Lopes also on 43 points o.c.o The Thursday morning ladies prize giving took place at the Fishmonger on 11 May 2012. Three prizes were awarded. Rosa Lombard received the Medal Final 2011 trophy. The best stableford points trophy handicap 0 - 27 was awarded to Rene Seidel and best stableford points trophy handicap 28 - 36 was awarded to Rosa Lombard. Congratulations to our winners. The GNGU Teams of Two Tournament was held at CCC on 14 May 2012, this tournament is run by Dot Van Ryneveld and GNGU and it was a great tournament enjoyed by all who took part. The Teams of Two Trophy was won by B Meerholz and Petra Meyer from Blue Valley. Second place went to Henriette Roux and Marianne Brown and 3rd place was won by Elna Fourie and Elize Schultz. The Betterball was won by Elize Visser and Karen Robinson. Foursomes was won by Olga Zorgmann and Lynne Liebenberg. Dot has said that she would like to hold the tournament again next year at our club, we will be very honoured to do so. We will be holding our next Mini Open (sponsored by Jean Avenue Spar) on Thursday, 19 July 2012. It will be a limited field (only 40 places) so please put this date in your diary and call Nicola on 012 665 9601 to book your spot.
Caddies with Spar hampers
Our Charity day will be taking place on Thursday, 9 August 2012. The charities that will benefit from our day will be the Irene Homes for the mentally handicapped, Safe House places of safety and as Lady Captain I would like to add the Centurion SPCA as this is a charity that is very close to my heart. I am appealing to all our members and residents of the Estate to open your hearts and purses to support this day. Is there anybody who can sponsor a wheelbarrow that we can fill with booze for our raffle? Or if you have any prizes to donate please contact me by e-mail hayley. email@example.com or call me on 083 660 5499. All donations will be very much appreciated. If anybody has any ideas for the charity day please feel free to pass them on to me.
Our Thursday morning ladies competition is receiving a lot of support and it is good to see new members joining on a Thursday morning. Although winter is fast approaching, put on that extra layer, pack a flask of hot chocolate and come along to play. Let’s keep the competition going through winter, we are very lucky in South Africa that our climate allows us to play all year round. Till next month. Hayley Mendes

Every golfer should add the bump-and-run to their short game arsenal. This is a low risk shot with a good outcome more often than not! Deciding to hit this shot depends largely on the position of the ball relative to the green and the flag. This means that the ball will spend less time in the air than on the ground. The bump and run is played more along the ground; the pitch shot is played in the air. A bump and run is usually played with a lower-lofted club relative to a wedge (an 9-,8-, 7- or even an 6-iron, for example). Why would you prefer a bump and run to a pitch? The front of the green might be open, with a hard fairway and hard green, making an approach that land on the green tough to stop. Or the wind might be howling, with the bump and run making it possible to keep the ball from getting up into - and blown around by - that wind. A bump in run, in other words, is often a more controllable shot than a pitch shot. Below the desired fundamentals to execute this shot perfect every time: • G rip: sound grip fundamentals are crucial for each and every shot. To ensure that you’re holding the club correct makes an appointment with your nearest PGA coach!
• Aim: club face must be square or perpendicular to intended ball-to-target line • Stance: feet together • B all Position: in line with the back big toe (dependant on loft of club being used and the desired ball flight) • P osture: An athletic position is crucial!! Lower half must be in a ‘ready’ position – knees slightly flexed. The upper body angle is formed by bending forward from the hips. The arms will hang down naturally from shoulders. • B ody Alignment: Square to ball-totarget line however feet can be slightly open to encourage weight distribution favouring the left side.

The following rules have been drawn up based on the original rules issued by the Home Owners Association that have been distributed to all the residents. Note that the rules are being put into place so that golfers and residents can enjoy the golf course. Please note that golfers always have priority on the course. Golfing hours are defined as from the first tee off time at 06h34 to the end of the day’s play. This could be as late as 19h00 especially in the summer months. Residents may enjoy the golf course for the purpose of walking and jogging, they must however exercise caution. The established walking trail has minimum interference from golfers however walkers should be aware when crossing playing paths of golfers. The Club will in no way be responsible to it’s members or visitors for any losses sustained by them or any injuries to them of whatsoever nature, occurring on the grounds or property of the Club by it’s servants, employees or otherwise. This implies that the onus will always be on the non-golfer to ensure his/her safety when walking or jogging or otherwise using the golf course. Please note further that the liability for the consequences of injury sustained on or near the golf course shall rest with the injured person. The home owner, when purchasing their home, automatically becomes social members of the Clubhouse and not full members. They are entitles to make use of the Clubhouse, with its facilities, squash courts and tennis club but this does not entitle them to use the golf course. All persons playing golf on the course must have reported to the Pro Shop. The player will receive a slip which confirms that he is entitled to be on the course. Members who have guests at the Clubhouse or on the course are responsible for his behaviour and his dress. Children are to exercise caution when using the roads and parking area around the Clubhouse as accidents easily occur. Bicycles, skateboards, scooters, motor bikes, roller blades and 4-wheelers are not permitted on the golf course at any time. The parking of vehicles on the golf course will not be permitted. Golf carts are not to be driven, on the course, by persons younger than 16 years. Carts hired from the Club are only to be driven by persons older than 18 years. Carts are not permitted on the course when the course is closed and after sunset. Carts are also prohibited after heavy rain or flooding to prevent damage to the course. Cart users are also requested not to cross areas demarcated by white rope. Although the playing of other games is not permitted on the course, the Club Committee has no objection to children kicking balls or playing cricket on the course but the golden rule is that the tee boxes, greens and bunkers are absolute no go areas at all times. It is requested of parents to please have a responsible person controlling these activities on the golf course. These activities are only allowed once the golfers have completed play, in that area, for the day.
Practising on the golf course is not permitted at all. Any member wishing to play a few holes after work must communicate with the Pro Shop. Children are not permitted to play, run etc on any putting green or bunkers. As a rule no dogs are allowed on the course however once again when walking the dogs, they must be kept on a leash as they tend to disrupt all bird life particularly the guinea fowl and the kiewiet. Should any excrement be deposited on the golf course it is expected of the proud owner to remove it immediately. Please note that the dogs that make a nuisance of themselves will be sent to the pound at the SPCA for the owners account. From an environmental management point of view please note the following. Swimming pools backwash water may not be channelled onto the golf course but into the storm water system. The fauna and flora, of any nature, may not be chased, trapped or damaged in any public place especially the golf course, be it by people or by dogs. No rubble is permitted to be left on the golf course, in front of homes. Picnicking will not be allowed on the golf course, especially not next to the river. Should a homeowner with to beautify the area between his yard and the golf course (behind the out of bounds stakes) he must first submit a plan to the Club Manager, who will obtain the necessary approval. The Management Committee reserves the right to make exceptions to these rules under certain circumstances. These exceptions will be published in the Interface as they occur. If clarity is needed on any of the above, any member or resident is requested to contact the Club Manager on (012) 665 0279 for an explanation.
