Several elite golf courses in New York wouldn’t let President Barack Obama play over Labor Day weekend because they didn’t want to inconvenience their high-paying members.

After attending the wedding of his longtime chef, Sam Kass, the president wanted to squeeze in some golf before heading back to DC. According to a report from NBC New York, the Trump National Golf Club, Winged Foot and Willow Ridge were some of the exclusive golf communities that snubbed the president.

The report says club managers weren’t trying to shut down their courses just to accommodate the president.

But Obama wasn’t the only one to get the stiffarm. King Mohammed VI of Morocco was also denied golf access over the holiday, and former President Bill Clinton was snubbed at these same clubs while he was in office.

According to reports, memberships at some New York clubs exceed $100,000, and Labor Day weekend is a busy time of year for the clubs.

    Brothers, brothers, brothers. Are all brothers under ndictmnt because of Ray Rice? If that is the case it doesn’t even matter what there political affiliation is. With that mentality, brothers will get screwed by either party.

    So What Is Your Point??? We have more serious issues to discuss… Black Women getting physically harmed by Brothers… and Brothers supporting wife beater Ray Rice … President Obama has a lot on his plate … we must support him … he must succeed or we all will fail Republicans, Democrats, Independent, Blacks, Browns, Whites, Yellow… All Americans.
