GAINESVILLE, Va. (AP) — President Barack Obama is playing golf at an exclusive club in northern Virginia.

On most weekends when Obama is at the White House, he takes his game to either the golf course at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland or the one at Fort Belvoir in Virginia.

Not this Saturday.

Obama headed for the elite Robert Trent Jones Golf Club in Gainesville, Virginia, which is on the shores of Lake Manassas.

The membership-only club has played host to four Presidents Cup tournaments since it was established in 1991.

The White House says Obama is playing with his former trade representative, Ron Kirk, and Milton Carroll. Carroll is chairman of CenterPoint Energy, a Houston-based public utility company. The third partner was identified as Joe O'Neill.
