In South Florida for a trio of fundraisers the night before, Obama traveled north from Miami to Fort Lauderdale, where he joined former basketball player Alonzo Mourning at the Grande Oaks Golf Club. Stay on course with this season’s pro golf schedules . The name of the private, 18-hole course has changed over the years, but “Caddyshack” fans will remember it as the site where Bill Murray, Chevy Chase, Rodney Dangerfield and a rambunctious gopher got into all kinds of antics in the 1980 comedy flick. Nearly three hours after he arrived, Obama was spotted behind the wheel of a golf cart, with Mourning in the passenger’s seat, cruising along near the ninth hole. The White House said former U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk, a frequent Obama golf partner, and Cyrus Walker, the cousin of senior presidential adviser Valerie Jarrett, rounded out the weekend foursome.
