Bush are now members of the same Florida golf course.

Both former commanders in chief have joined The Floridian National Golf Club in Palm City, Jim Crane, who owns both the club and Houston Astros, told Fox 26 in Houston.

“Mr. Obama has been to our place a few times before and had a little down time, he was doing some work in Florida, and spent a few days there playing golf,” Crane said.

“And I got to play with him and Tiger [Woods] one time. It was a lot of fun, he’s a fun guy to play with,” he added.

Crane said that Obama enjoys the course and has “been there many times.”


He added that both Obama and Bush had recently become members at the course, “so we have both sides of the political spectrum covered there.”

“He’s a new member and so is George W., so I’m very neutral on the politics,” Crane said.
