TravelHero Announces Plan for Spin-off of GolfHero
Scottsdale, AZ- ( September 20th , 2005) - TravelHero, an online travel technology company specializing in B2B solutions for the online travel industry today has announced its plans to spin-off the GolfHero division into a separate company.

“The decision to separate GolfHero at this time is based on the overwhelming demand for this exciting new golf travel technology solution from major companies within the online hospitality industry. Since the creation of GolfHero, we’ve understood the time would come when we would be approached to spin-off this division into a separate entity.  Said Roy Staten, Founder of GolfHero. We just didn’t realize it would happen so quickly. Personally, I credit TravelHero for believing in the vision and making the major investment in the GolfHero technology, thus allowing us to build from scratch a totally independent technological solution from the parent company.”   We think the rapid success and industry acceptance of GolfHero is well summed up by a quote from Ed Utz, Director of Marketing for Marriott Golf, when he said, “I credit GolfHero for recognizing the opportunity.  They have cracked the code on this one.  Now we can offer one-stop shopping for golf and lodging, something we have wanted to facilitate for years.”
