Golf Course Owner Becomes US President

November 9th, 2016

Several golfers have been Presidents of the United States but Donald Trump is the first golf course owner to be elected to this high office. President Obama has been much criticised for the number of times that he has played golf during his time in office, not just for the time that some believe he has ‘wasted’ but for the high costs involved too. At least President Trump will be able to save on the green fees.
