President Trump Installed Room-Sized Golf Simulator in White House

U.S. President Donald Trump plays a round of golf at Trump Turnberry Luxury Collection Resortduring the U.S. President's first official visit to the United Kingdom

So much so, according to a new Washington Post report, that he's had a new personal golf simulator installed at the White House. To begin, let's establish what we're talking about here: a golf simulator combines a large screen with a fake-grass mat; a golf course is projected onto the screen, and when the player hits the ball into the screen, a computer simulates the ball's flight based on the player's initial stroke. It replaced an older, less sophisticated system installed under former President Barack Obama, according to the paper, which cited two people told about the system.

Previously, he was a critic of his predecessor playing golf while in office.

After the shutdown, the President golfed at his Florida club earlier this month with Tiger Woods and Jack Nicklaus.


The demands of the job, however, mean that the commander in chief can't play whenever he wants.

The White House has a long history of renovations, including recreational activities installed by presidents. The Trump Organization operates 17 golf courses, according to the company's website. The current green is 1,500 square feet of Southshore creeping bentgrass.

President Theodore Roosevelt had the White House renovated to update the lighting from gas to electric.
