FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — President Barack Obama is hitting the greens with a former NBA star at the private Florida golf club where “Caddyshack” was filmed.

Obama played through intermittent showers at the Grande Oaks Golf Club in Fort Lauderdale. It’s a private, 18-hole course where Bill Murray, Chevy Chase, Rodney Dangerfield and a rambunctious gopher got into all kinds of antics in the 1980 golf flick.

Joining Obama for the Saturday outing was former NBA player Alonso Mourning. The White House said former U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk, a frequent Obama golf partner, was also playing.

Earlier this year, Obama caused a stir when he golfed at another exclusive Florida golf and yacht club with Tiger Woods.

Obama headlined three Democratic fundraisers in South Florida Friday night. He returns to Washington Saturday afternoon.
