Unlike previous weekends, the president did not appear to be joined by other lawmakers.

As ABC News previously reported, Trump visited the club last Saturday with Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., and then on Sunday, he was joined by Sen. Rand Paul, R-Kentucky. Trump also visited the club with Graham over the Columbus Day weekend.

In an interview with Golf.com following their Columbus Day outing, Graham described Trump as an ideal host.

“I ran out of golf balls,” he said. “He started giving me golf balls. He’s a gracious host. They didn’t have the presidential seal. You know, they make TaylorMade golf balls in South Carolina. I’m going to have some made for him. They make them 10 miles from where I live.”
