RANCHO MIRAGE (AP) — President Barack Obama has squeezed in a morning round on a Southern California golf course.

The White House says the president played the nine-hole course at the Sunnylands estate in Rancho Mirage on Sunday.

Obama played the course on Saturday with Mike Ramos and Bobby Titcomb, childhood friends from Hawaii, where Obama grew up. White House aide Marvin Nicholson rounded out the foursome.

Obama arrived at the estate once owned by billionaire philanthropist Walter Annenberg on Friday for a summit with China’s president.

Those talks wrapped up on Saturday, and Obama stayed at Sunnylands through the weekend.

He was scheduled to return to the White House Sunday evening.
