HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - President Barack Obama capped 2009 with a round of golf Thursday afternoon at the Mid Pacific Country Club in Lanikai.

The news spread quickly through Kailua, and soon a crowd of onlookers had gathered near the entrance to the golf course. 

"We saw the cars and we knew that something was happening here. And I wanted to take a picture because my brother is such an Obama fan and it would be so exciting if he were to see the picture. So that's why I'm here. I'm an Obama fan too," said Chris Woodward, a tourist visiting Oahu from New Mexico. 

It is the second consecutive year the president has played at Mid Pac and the third round of golf Obama has played during his current vacation. He also played at Luana Hills Country Club and The Kaneohe Clipper Course at Marine Corps Base Hawaii.
