RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif. — President Barack Obama is teeing off on a private California golf course owned by supporter Larry Ellison, the billionaire co-founder of the Oracle software company.
Ellison ranks third on Forbes’ annual list of the 400 richest Americans, with an estimated $41 billion fortune.
His 249-acre desert property in Rancho Mirage came with a 19-hole private golf course. The extra hole is available for playoffs.
The White House says Obama’s foursome includes childhood friends Bobby Titcomb, Greg Orme and Michael Ramos.
Obama was spending the weekend in California after meeting Friday at a resort with Jordan’s king. His wife and daughters are skiing in Colorado.
The president was returning to the White House on Monday. On Tuesday, he planned to discuss the economy in the Washington area.
