Trump installs room-sized golf simulator in White House

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

Now the Washington Post reports that the president has a new toy that he can enjoy during "executive time": A $50,000 state-of-the-art golf simulator that will let him virtually play 18 holes without ever having to go outdoors.

The demands of the job, however, mean that the commander in chief can't play whenever he wants. The simulator has been installed in the president's private residence in the White House. So one can imagine the torture that must come from having access to this unbelievable machine - which allows the user to play a virtual round at the world's finest real and imagined courses - but simply not having the free time to use it. Trump reportedly paid for the simulation machine out of his own pocket. While a White House official told the Post that Trump doesn't use the simulator during his executive time, the President spends the majority of his morning in his personal residence.

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.
