President Donald Trump personally paid to have a “golf simulator” installed in the White House residence that allows him to play virtual rounds of golf, The Washington Post reported Wednesday.
The Post, citing an unnamed White House official, said the President has not yet used the new system, which cost about $50,000 and was installed in the last several weeks, the official said.
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.
Reportedly Trump complained to friends during the shutdown that he missed Mar-a-Lago and being at his Florida course.
Here’s a look at the simulator below:
“Feel the excitement of playing real golf on beautiful courses year round,” the TrackMan website says. The system also allows players to analyze their own shots and practice without playing on a virtual course.
It says that a full setup, including the turf, screen and sensors, starts at $49,995.
Taxpayers doing Trump a solid.
