This morning (Hawaii time!), President Barack Obama is hitting the links at the luxurious Turtle Bay Resort on Oahu’s North Shore. The resort has two professional grade courses, the Arnold Palmer and George Fazio courses.

It's picturesque and looks lovely (at least, the Arnold Palmer Course, that is):

The Palmer (pictured above) is considered a top course in Hawaii.

"With 36 holes of championship golf, two complete practice facilities with professional instruction available, a restaurant as identifiable with North Shore surf culture as Pipeline itself (Lei Lei's), and of course 350 or so days of body-warming sunshine, Turtle Bay beckons you," the description on the resort's website reads.

"Turtle Bay is situated along acres of majestic coastline on Oahu's fabled North Shore, a long-time home to the world's most prominent Watermen.  Though the area has been primarily known for its spectacular surf, two legends of golf - Arnold Palmer and George Fazio - have boldly chosen to leave their indelible mark on this untouched coast. Now it is your turn."

The "Golf & Shuttle Transportation Package" offered by the resort costs $195 for Palmer and $175 for Fazio.

Obama remains in Hawaii until tomorrow, when he'll head back to work in Washington, D.C.
