Dear Mr Pieters


A hearty welcome from the Tourism Grading Council of South Africa (TGCSA).
Your establishment, The Pines Wedding & Conference Village , membership number 331020501, has been awarded Three star grading in the MESE category as a result of the successful assessment performed by Steve Scott on 02 Feb 2017.

We congratulate you and your team on this achievement and we acknowledge your efforts to contribute to the sustainability of the Tourism Industry in South Africa through your commitment to quality assurance.

What you need to know:

  1. We invite you to proudly display the TGCSA logo on all your marketing collateral i.e. brochures, websites. This will provide further prominence to the fact that your establishment has been quality assured and that your star grading status is appropriately acknowledged.
  2. As a star graded establishment, your grading plaque will be couriered to you within 60 days from approval date. As part of the conditions of joining our quality family, it is critical to display this marketing tool to the public during the duration of your valid grading status. It is important to familiarise yourself with the Schedule of Conditions you accepted when applying for grading as these conditions govern the use of the TGCSA insignia (Stars, grading certificate and plaque).

Once again congratulations on this achievement and we are all looking forward to working with you to “put the stars where they belong”.

With kind regards
The Tourism Grading Council Team
