How many times has President Donald Trump played golf while in office?

If Trump is playing, it will apparently be his ninth golf outing as president.

President Donald Trump, who's spending the weekend at his tropical White House in Palm Beach, made the brief trip this morning from Mar-a-Lago to his Trump International Golf Club in unincorporated West Palm Beach.

Trump's predecessor, President Barack Obama, left an estimated 103 judicial vacancies throughout the federal circuit and district courts, or almost double the 54 openings he had when he entered office in 2009 after George W. Bush's presidency.

Obama did not golf with world leaders or members of Congress on a regular or even semiregular basis, preferring to surround himself with close friends, pro athletes and celebrities or White House aides.

In doing so, Spicer suggested the man who managed Donald Trump's presidential campaign "had a very limited role" - despite at least two months in charge. The figure is not certain because the White House rarely confirms when Trump is golfing. "The president is entitled to a bit of privacy at some point", Spicer said. "I think when you read a lot of this activity about 'associates, ' there is a fine line between people who want to be part of something that they never had an official role in and people who actually played a role in the campaign or transition".

"I love golf, I think it's one of the greats, but I don't have time", then-President-elect Trump said during a December 2016 rally in MI.

Since taking office, however, Trump, an avid golfer who is reportedly a better player than his predecessor, has not shied away from his favourite pastime. But before he ran for office, Trump was the most fervent critic of the fact that President Barack Obama regularly hit the links with friends, aides and advisers, arguing that it showed the president was unserious about fixing America's problems.

The White House did not disclose whether Trump played golf over the weekend, but a photo posted on Twitter by Newsmax chief executive Christopher Ruddy, a friend of the president, showed Trump wearing a golfing glove and posing with two others at the club.

Trump, Rory McIlroy, former baseball star Paul O'Neill and Clear Sports CEO Garry Singer on the links February 19.

A prime example came when Trump played golf with Rory McIlroy ahead of his comeback to the PGA Tour.

After the McIlroy news, Sanders said the president "intended to play a few holes and chose to play longer". Also, some Cabinet secretaries have been more welcoming of their White House liaisons.
