Want to play a round of golf at a private club over Labor Day Weekend in New York City, you need a reservation, if if you are the Duffer in Chief, by Kelly Cohen, Washington Examiner:

President Obama was turned down by several top golf courses in New York over Labor Day weekend that didn’t want to deal with the hassle of a presidential visit.


Clubs were given just a day or two notice to fill the request, according to sources. Fairview Country Club in Greenwich was the only club that would have accommodated him, a spokesman said.

President Obama does not so much like to play golf as likes to be seen playing golf.
