The Obamas are on vacation on the Massachusetts island of Martha’s Vineyard.
Obama is playing golf at the Vineyard Golf Club with World Bank President Jim Yong Kim, former Clinton administration official and private equity investor Glenn Hutchins, and Cyrus Walker, cousin of White House Senior Adviser Valerie Jarrett.
The Huffington Post reported that the almost 7000-square-foot Chilmark mansion, positioned on nine-and-a-half-acres, houses a sunken living room with double-height windowed walls that allow the first family a view of the heated infinity pool.
Obama is taking some time to spruce up his golf skills. On Wednesday, the president played a game of golf with National Basketball Association stars Alonzo Mourning and Ray Allen.
The former First Lady and Secretary of State will be on Martha’s Vineyard Sunday at the Edgartown home of Frank and Carol Biondi and then she heads to Nantucket for a fundraiser at the home of Ambassador Elizabeth Frawley Bagley, who served as ambassador to Portugal during President Bill Clinton’s administration and now serves as Special Advisor for Secretary’s Initiatives in the Secretary of State’s Office. Their 17-day vacation is more than four times the length of the average American vacation.
Press photographers were allowed onto the course where Obama was pictured exhibiting his signature putting antics.
