President Obama's Summer 2013 Vacation

1 of 12

First Family on Martha's Vineyard

OAK BLUFFS, Mass. (AP) — President Barack Obama teed off his Martha's Vineyard vacation Sunday with his favorite pastime — golfing.

Obama spent more than five hours at the Farm Neck Golf Club on his first outing of a weeklong stay on the exclusive Massachusetts island, where he arrived Saturday afternoon. The course is open to the public and overlooks Nantucket Sound.

The president golfed with aide Marvin Nicholson, White House chef Sam Kass and Robert Wolf, a Wall Street consultant who has advised him on financial matters. Later, Obama and his wife, Michelle, joined friends for dinner at the French seafood restaurant Sweet Life Cafe.

Obama regularly vacations on the island, but he's staying for the first time at the Chilmark home of Chicago pal David Schulte.

The White House says Obama plans no official public appearances but will receive daily briefings on national security and domestic issues.
