OAK BLUFFS, Mass. (AP) — President Barack Obama is teeing off his Martha’s Vineyard vacation with his favorite pastime — golfing.

Obama hit the Farm Neck Golf Club for 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 was golfing Sunday with aide Marvin Nicholson, White House chef Sam Kass and Robert Wolf, a Wall Street consultant who has advised him on financial matters.

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.
