Obama shifts weekend golf game to elite Northern Va. course
Obama usually plays his standard weekend golf game at Andrews Air Force Base or at Fort Belvoir in Virginia.
But on Saturday the president and his three companions teed off instead at the elite Robert Trent Jones Golf Club on the shores of Lake Manassas in Gainesville, Virginia.
The club, where membership is by invitation only, has played host to four Presidents Cup tournaments since it was established in 1991.
The Obama foursome included his former trade representative, Ron Kirk, and Milton Carroll, the White House said. Carroll is chairman of CenterPoint Energy, a Houston-based public utility company. The third partner was identified as Joe O'Neill.
Saturday was Obama's first time on the Robert Trent Jones course, where nine of the 18 holes run adjacent to the lake.
Former President Bill Clinton played at the club a few times, according to CBS News White House reporter Mark Knoller, a respected chronicler of presidential outings.
