Golf Course Home® Network Closes in on Million Visitor Mark

August Traffic Produces Best Visitor Results in Network's History

NEWTOWN, CT -- (MARKET WIRE) -- September 7, 2005 -- Visitor traffic to the Golf Course Home® Network, a buyers' resource of 16 web sites featuring master-planned, golf and waterview communities, leapt to a new record of more than 115,000 visitors in August, according to David Lott, Editor and Publisher.

The month's results pushed the year's total traffic to more than 770,000 visitors and within striking distance of the Network's goal of 1 million visitors for the year.

The month was the best 31-day period in the six-year history of the Golf Course Home® Network and follows on the heels of a record-setting month in July. The August record surpassed July's high-water mark by a brisk 17 percent.

Overall, visitor traffic to the Golf Course Home® Network is up 42.4 percent over 2004.

The month was also marked by the launching of the Network's 16th web site, www.ColoradoGolfCommunities.net.

"The days of a summer hiatus for purchasing property in warm-weather states such as Florida are history," notes Lott. "The interest from buyers for Florida property, as well as for communities across the U.S. and in Canada and Mexico, is year-round and, furthermore, it is continuing to build."

http://www.GolfCourseHome.net and http://www.WaterViewHome.net are the core of the Golf Course Home® Network which features a database of more than 500 master-planned communities, plus features on more than 100 world-class golf and waterview communities in the U.S., Canada, Mexico and Europe.

Industry leaders featuring properties on The Golf Course Home® Network include Toll Brothers, IMI Resorts, Intrawest/Playground, Centex, Del Webb, Ginn Company, Worthington, St. Joe and LandMar.

GolfCourseHome.net has been featured in Business 2.0 Magazine, Golf Digest, Schwab's ON INVESTING magazines and many online publications.
