An Expensive Golf Simulator Was Installed in Trump’s White House Quarters



It’s no secret that President Donald Trump loves to play golf. In addition to regularly playing the game, Trump owns a total of 16 golf courses in both the USA and abroad.

The demands of the job, however, mean that the commander in chief can’t play whenever he wants. Til now, that is. The Washington Post is reporting that Trump recently had a massive, $50,000 golf simulator installed in the White House.

The simulator, which takes up an entire room, allows players to golf on some of the world’s most famous courses. Trump reportedly paid for the simulation machine out of his own pocket.

This is not the first golf simulator installed in the White House. According to the Post, “the system replaced an older, less sophisticated golf simulator that had been installed under President Obama.”

It is likely, though, that this report will lead to more questions about the president’s time management. Last week, the White House was rocked by an Axios story that revealed 60% of Trump’s schedule was made up of “executive time.”

The simulator will also allow Trump to enjoy himself when the job pulls him away from the golf course. According to a report, Trump recently went 69 days without playing golf due to the government shutdown.
