Obama turns 52 today, and is spending part of the day at the Camp David presidential retreat in Maryland.
The president kicked off his birthday weekend early Saturday morning with a trip to Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland, just outside the Beltway, to squeeze in some golfing time before heading to Camp David in the afternoon.
The White House said there were three golfing foursomes, including Obama's friends from Hawaii and Chicago, and current and former staffers. Some of Obama's friends joined him at Camp David, in Maryland's Catoctin Mountains.
Obama is scheduled to return to the White House on Sunday afternoon. His week ahead includes travel to the West Coast to discuss plans to help homeowners, appear on "The Tonight Show" with Jay Leno and visit with troops at Camp Pendleton.
He also has a White House meeting Thursday with the prime minister of Greece.
