President Obama to play the Floridian Club This Weekend

President Barak ObamaPresident Barak Obama will be spending some time in Palm Beach County this weekend and like many others who come and visit the area will look to get a round of golf in. People from all over the world come to South Florida to play our beautiful courses and the President of the United States is no different.

The President is expected to play the Tom Fazio designed course at the Floridian Golf Club in Palm City. The par 72 course was opened in 1996 and originally designed by Jupiter Island resident and former PGA Tour pro Gary Player. It was redesigned and reconstructed by Fazio in 2011 and features a Butch Harmon School of Golf on the grounds. It is considered to the one of the country’s premier golf clubs. President Obama won’t just be playing a round of golf while in town. He will also be working with Butch and his son Claude III personally, who will both be flying in for the occasion.

This will not be the first time that Butch Harmon will be working with a President of the United States.

“I’ve played golf with Ike, Nixon, Ford, and President Bush 41,” Harmon told the Palm Beach Post. “I never played with President Clinton. I met him in the Oval Office. It’ll be interesting. I know the President is a real keen golfer. I’m looking forward to it. It should be fun.”
