President Obama is spending part of his holiday weekend hitting the links.

The president on Saturday went golfing at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland to celebrate Easter weekend. He was joined by Sam Kass, a former aide and White House chef; Greg Orme, a childhood friend and frequent golfing buddy; and aides Joe Paulsen and Marvin Nicholson, who also often join the president on his golf outings.


Obama went golfing with Paulsen and Nicholson last week at Andrews after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu canceled a meeting that the two had planned.

And last month, Orme joined the president for a round at the famed Stadium Course at PGA West in La Quinta, Calif., known as one of the most difficult courses in the world.
