TeeTimeHelper golfers enjoy exclusive access to fill out their tee times

 TeeTimeHelper has introduced a locking system to allow members exclusive access to their chosen tee time in order to add their playing partners.

When a golfer RSVPs 'yes' to an event they have the option to add their playing partners.  Previously, some members encountered a situation where another invitee has taken a slot in the same tee time before they can finish adding their preferred playing partners.

We have solved this problem by giving members exclusive access for a limited time to fill out their tee time. Our system has optimized this procedure - if a user does not indicate they are adding members TeeTimeHelper automatically frees up the remaining slots for others. If we detect the user is in the process of adding more members the lock time is extended.

When golfers RSVP the default tee time is usually the first available. If a tee time is temporarily locked the next tee time will be the default. This means we minimize waiting when a tee time is temporarily locked and in most cases it is transparent to the other members.

A countdown time is displayed on the main event page for the tee times that are currently locked. Once the timer ends it completely disappears from the screen.

Please note that the tee time locking feature is only available for paid accounts for events with 20 or more members.

If you have any questions please contact us.

Setup your golf event and send invites at a later date

 We are rolling out a feature which allows golf admins to setup a golf event with members but not send the invites out immediately.

As the admin, this allows you to add all of your members and get the system setup just the way you want it. You will be notified at the top of the event page that invites have not been sent and gives you the option to send invites at your chosen time.

This feature will give you more control over your events and allow you to plan your golf events better.

Happy Golfing

Fill out your tee time with other members without losing your slots


We are currently beta testing a feature which allows you to reserve a tee time giving you the opportunity to add members without others selecting your slots.

Normally all the invite emails are sent in a short amount of time which has caused increased stress levels and racing to fill out tee times before other invitees take slots by selecting the same tee time.

In  Februrary 2023 we will be rolling out automatic locking of tee times. This gives you time to select other members for your teetime without fear of someone else booking them into one of your slots.

You will have a clear countdown timer to reserve your tee time and make your selections. After the countdown timer expires other members are able to select your tee time.

If you have any questions please contact us!
