TeeTimesLive.com Becomes More User Friendly With Launch of New Community Toolbar

VANCOUVER, B.C., May 15 /PRNewswire/ -- TeeTimesLive.com -- already the easiest-to-navigate website for users seeking golf tee times and packages -- continues to become even more user friendly with the introduction of its unprecedented TeeTimesLive Community Toolbar powered by Conduit.

TeeTimesLive.com users can now download the website's Community Toolbar on their computers to receive TeeTimesLive.com's freshest content delivered directly to their browsers, no matter where they are on the web.

Once downloaded, users remain connected to the website as the toolbar -- which appears on the Internet browser window -- provides instant access into TeeTimesLive.com and all of its user-friendly features. The toolbar also allows the golfer to "Search Tee Times," view "Hot Deals," check constant "Weather" on the screen, receive "Messages" and engage in "Live Chat." The "Messages" notify users of vacation specials, equipment deals and company news, while the "Live Chat" feature allows users to chat with each other in real-time.

"This new, groundbreaking TeeTimesLive Community Toolbar allows us to better reach our users and give them instant access to tee times and vacations, as well as allow them to interact with other users," says Ainsley Barlow, president of Vancouver-based West Coast T-Times Inc., which owns and operates TeeTimesLive.com and BCTeeTimes.com.

The TeeTimesLive Community Toolbar is just the latest revolutionary TeeTimesLive.com breakthrough in its quest to make booking tee times and golf packages as simple as possible. For instance, in February the company launched a livelier, more information-filled landing page that has made it easier than ever to search for and book an entire golf vacation online. This one-stop- shopping experience from 1-4 players, up to 6 months in advance -- in most cases -- to world-class golf destinations in the United States, Canada, the Caribbean and Europe, is unparalleled.

In addition to the website's previous six key menu options -- Tee Times, Last-Minute Specials, Packages, Media, About Us and Contact Us -- the landing page offers more informational options, golf-course photographs and maps than the old website.

The new-and-improved landing page's left column is dedicated to Golf Destinations, featuring the top golf destinations in 14 states and two Canadian provinces. One click on a specific destination reveals a featured course -- plus all the region's other courses -- along with brief descriptions, information and a photograph of each; one-click options to search for and to make tee-time reservations; an interactive map of the destination's golf courses and hotels; and golf-course reviews by other TeeTimesLive.com users.

"Golfers want unbiased reviews of golf courses, by allowing golfers to leave course reviews, other users can get the scoop on courses before they play," says Barlow, who co-founded West Coast T-Times Inc., with Chelsea Muir in March, 2005 to provide golfers with an easier way to book tee times at golf courses worldwide 24 hours a day, seven days a week. "It's a huge benefit for travelers when deciding which courses to play. And the interactive map allows golfers to view which courses are in the nearest proximity to a specific hotel, for instance, which makes it easier for golfers to plan their vacations."

The landing page also features several other options -- Golf Vacations, a Tee Time Reservations box and Golf Specials.

One click on Golf Vacations provides all the pertinent informational links a user needs to plan a golf trip -- Destinations, Tee Times, Lodging, Get Quote, Packages and Group Travel.

The Tee Times Reservations box features a pull-down menu so users can efficiently book live advance and last-minute tee times in 29 states and 11 countries, and also book their flights, hotels and car rentals on TeeTimesLive.com.

Golf Specials features more -- and deeper -- discounted-last-minute specials, a top-deals-of-the-week section and course reviews.

Now, with the new Community Toolbar that can be downloaded to a user's computer, TeeTimesLive.com provides golfers with the absolute latest news and weather regarding information they need for an upcoming tee time or package they have already booked, or are about to book.

"We want to give our customers the most up-to-date information available (at their fingertips ... )," Barlow says. "Our new toolbar feature accomplishes that, and as we move forward we'll continue to ensure that making a tee time or booking a package with TeeTimesLive.com is a pleasant, and informative, experience."
