Following fundraisers in New York and Rhode Island the Friday before Labor Day, President Obama had planned an overnight stay in Westchester County, New York, to attend a wedding Saturday. With a little free time on his hands, the president hoped to swing by a local golf club on Saturday morning, but he was turned down by three of them.
Trump National, Willow Ridge and Winged Foot–all in New York–turned the president away. Sources tell WNBC that club managers didn’t want to inconvenience their members, who pay more than $100,000 to join some of the clubs.
Trump National is owned by Donald Trump, who poked fun about rejecting Obama on Wednesday on Twitter:
If Obama resigns from office NOW, thereby doing a great service to the country–I will give him free lifetime golf at any one of my courses!

Over Labor Day weekend, Obama returned to Washington on Friday evening and then headed all the way back to Westchester on Saturday.
