The new club house is located in the Green Point Commons, not far away from where the old one was. The old club house had to make way for the redevelopment of the Green Point for the FIFA soccer world cup 2010. For a brief history of the club house click here.
On 11 June 2010, the same day the soccer world cup started, also the new club house opened which we share with the Austrian Club.

The Camping Season is slowly coming to an end even though, fortunately we have the members who still go out and enjoy Jonkershoek, even in the cooler weather. Easter is on the 16th April, please come out and support the Organisers of this annual event! Remember, it is fun not only for the children but for the Mom's who get to see their little ones excited, sometimes worried faces when they 'hunt' for their Easter surprise. Lets keep praying for a good Winter with lots of rain so that our Dams can befilled to capacity and we can once again enjoy our beautiful and fruitful gardens.
Until next time, take care be safe out there……

Presidents Report 2016
Sadly we had a family who lost a gas bottle and some of their foodstuff to an opportunist who entered our Campsite in the early hours of the morning on the 3 January, their entry and exit was from across the River. This happened on two other occasions during the year.
Unfortunately we've had some problems with our Reservoir running dry, leaving us without water since end January. We are grateful to Norman, who once again came to the rescue and got us a petrol pump from Nature Conservation, which we used to pump water to our big tank.
On the 12 March, Norman reported that our brass taps from our drinking water and the one at the ablution block had been stolen, resulting in a complete water loss from all our tanks. Two days later he discovered that the burglars had entered the ladies toilets through the roof and stolen the copper pipes connected to the geysers. One month later a bigger problem reared its ugly head again, this time a burglary to both the Chalet and the Cabin. Most of our equipment were stolen, including fridges, frying pan right down to our toilet paper and cleaning materials. The new method of entry to homes, which has become quite common and known as the 'crowbar entry' was used. Their trail led to the shacks behind us.
Since 1 April the Stellenbosch Municipality has implemented new Patrol Vehicles to all the Farms and allocated each with a number, ours being 'Farm 40'. They patrol 4 times per day, so please do not be alarmed if a vehicle with the branding JSRA (Jonkershoek Special Rating Area) comes on our Property. They previously did not have access to our property but since the burglary, we saw the need to allow them access.
We have looked at various security options and to date have installed 5 motion sensor lights. Roger fitted shutters to all the windows at the Chalet.
Our Copper thief has been at another burglary and his finger prints matches ours. He is now safe at Pollsmoor.
We had to cut down 8 rotten trees to prevent unforseen accidents from happening, they will be replaced with new trees. For a long time it looked like a Construction site in front of the Chalet, we laid new paving and built an enclosed wall for seating purposes.
A word of thanks to Robert Keller for his kind and generous donation that enabled us to do the wall and paving, also thanks to Ernst Heusser and Desmond Hamburg for their donation of fridges, it has been bolted to the floor and will hopefully stay there.
A Special thanks to Roger Huber, Hans Herren and Ernest Bürki for their time , hard work and dedication towards uplifting, upgrading and maintaining our Jewel in Jonkershoek.
Yours in Service
