There’s nothing that Barack Obama loves more than playing golf. Now, this hobby is being taken away from him, as the president is being snubbed at top golf clubs all over the country.
According to Huffington Post, Obama was attending the New York wedding of his longtime chef Sam Kass when he decided to squeeze in a game of golf. The president tried to get into golf clubs all over the area, but reports say he was brutally snubbed by the Trump National Golf Club, Winged Foot and Willow Ridge. Managers at these clubs reportedly refused to shut down their golf courses just to accommodate Obama.
Membership at these golf clubs in New York often exceed $100,000, and they weren’t about to shut down for a third rate president.
This undoubtedly came as a heavy blow to Obama, considering the fact that he has spent the majority of his presidency on the golf course. Obama also loves fraternizing with the elite, so being shut down by the wealthy power players must sting for him.
Obama has previously announced plans to possibly move to New York, but this snubbing may make him think twice about that. Then again, Obama will likely not be more welcome in any other part of the country. He might need to build his own golf course to play on, because nobody else wants him to play on theirs!
