President Joe Biden has gone golfing for the first time in his presidency, according to White House reporters.

On Saturday morning, pool reports indicated a trip to an undisclosed location, which turned out to be the Wilmington Country Club. From AFP’s Sebastian Smith:

POTUS motorcade arrived at the Wilmington Country Club just north of Greenville at 12:58 pm. Pool could not immediately see the president as we are now pausing in the car park.

The Country Club has a well known golf course. It’s a game Biden has long played – though not since becoming president.

Pool is asking the White House for details on whom he’s with and what they’re up to.

The course visible by pool was busy with people playing and practicing putting. As this was not announced in advance the motorcade’s appearance was evidently a surprise and we could see club members filming the event on cellphones.

According to other White House reporters, Biden is indeed playing golf today:

Although not the avid golfer that his predecessor was, President Biden does apparently have some talent for the game. While Biden has indeed played regularly enough at clubs in Delaware, records indicate that as vice president to Barack Obama, he wasn’t much of a practitioner.  Biden was ranked 29th-best golfer in Washington, DC in 2011, but by the time he and Obama left office in 2016, the then-VP had slipped to number 68.
