Obama's Golf Simulator Wasn't Sophisticated Enough For Trump. So He Upgraded

Trump Reportedly Got a New Golf Simulator Installed in the White House

U.S. President Donald Trump plays a round of golf at Trump Turnberry Luxury Collection Resort during the U.S. President's first official visit to the United Kingdom on July 15, 2018 in Turnberry, Scotland. The simulator has been installed in the president's private residence in the White House.

The new system cost about $50,000, and was installed sometime in the past few weeks in a room in the commander-in-chief's personal quarters, according to the report.

However, one White House official insists to the Post that Trump has yet to make use of the simulator, even during lengthy periods of "executive time".

While the simulator would allow Trump to play virtual rounds at courses all over the world, the source added that he hadn't used it since it was put in.

According to the paper, the simulator replaced an "older, less sophisticated golf simulator" that existed in the White House during former President Barack Obama's tenure. "Trump broke the streak on February 2, playing with golf legends Tiger Woods and Jack Nicklaus at Trump's course in Jupiter, Florida".
