Two weeks after showing on the Presidents Cup (together with fellow former presidents George W. Bush and Invoice Clinton), Barack Obama continues to make information within the golf world.
Because the Washingtonian reviews, the previous president has accepted an invite to hitch Columbia Nation Membership in Chevy Chase, Md. This would be the second membership Obama has joined because the finish of his two phrases as president.
CNN had reported in Might the Obama joined Robert Trent Jones Golf Membership in Gainesville, Va. Obama and his household stay in Kalorama Heights, which is simply six miles from Columbia Nation Membership. Robert Trent Jones Golf Membership, which has hosted 4 Presidents Cups, is roughly an hour away.
The Columbia Nation Membership’s board advised members of the information Thursday in a letter:
“Following cautious deliberation, the Board of Governors voted to increase an invite for Honorary Membership to former President of the USA Barack Obama,” reads an excerpt of the letter obtained by the Washingtonian. “We now have acquired official phrase from Mr. Obama of his acceptance of our invitation.”
It has not all the time been this easy for Obama gaining acceptance to a rustic membership. Quite a lot of Woodmont Nation Membership members expressed outrage over Obama probably becoming a member of their Rockville, Md., membership earlier than Woodmont ultimately prolonged Obama an invite to hitch. (It’s unclear if the previous president did settle for.)
The members at Columbia aren’t unanimous of their help, both. The Washingtonian quoted one member saying the information was “horrible” as Obama’s Secret Service presence would lock up the course.
Nonetheless, the bulk seem in favor of Obama’s membership.
“I feel most members will welcome him,” one Columbia member informed the Washingtonian. “Columbia, in a way, is in competitors with the Chevy Chase Membership, which is simply down Connecticut Avenue, and so I suppose there (are) some bragging rights.”
The problems by no means stop for a former president, however in the long run he now has one other valuable spot to hone his recreation.
