Report: Barack Obama joins second golf country club post-presidency

Barack Obama enjoys himself some golf. I think we all know that about the 44th president of the United States, so it's no surprise to see him join another Washington D.C. golf club, according to the Washingtonian.

Obama, who was at the Presidents Cup two weeks ago, will reportedly join Columbia Country Club in Chevy Chase, Maryland.

Columbia's board revealed the news in a letter to members on Thursday. "Following careful deliberation, the Board of Governors voted to extend an invitation for Honorary Membership to former President of the United States Barack Obama," reads an excerpt shared with Washingtonian. "We have received official word from Mr. Obama of his acceptance of our invitation."

All of this on the heels of Obama reportedly joining the Robert Trent Jones Golf Club in Virginia earlier in the year. Sports media personalities (and Obama golfing partners) Tony Kornheiser and Michael Wilbon are reportedly members of the club as well.

"The Board looks forward to the addition of Mr. Obama and his family to our wonderful and very special membership," their letter to members concludes, "and encourage everyone to provide them with our traditional and time-honored 'Warm Columbia Welcome.'"
