Several elite golf courses in the New York area turned down chances to host President Barack Obama over Labor Day weekend, WNBC reported Wednesday.
Winged Foot, Willow Ridge and the Trump National Golf Club were among the courses that rejected Obama because they did not want to displace their wealthy and high-powered members, the report said, citing several unnamed sources.
The president's team called club managers, giving them a day or two's notice, but they refused to shut down their courses to accommodate him, according to the report. Labor Day weekend is considered one of their busiest periods of the year for golf courses.
Obama had events in New York area on Aug. 29 and 30, a Friday and a Saturday, and he hoped to spend his Saturday morning golfing. Instead, he flew back to Washington on Friday night and returned to the New York area on Saturday.
Representatives of Winged Foot, Willow Ridge and Trump National declined WNBC's request for comment.
