KAILUA, Hawaii (AP) - President Barack Obama is starting the new year with a round of golf.

Obama arrived Friday morning to play at the Kaneohe Klipper Golf Course on Marine Corps Base Hawaii. The weather on Oahu's east side was sunny, with light breezes.

The White House says Obama is joined by White House aide Marvin Nicholson and Obama's high school pals Bobby Titcomb and Mike Ramos.

Obama departed his Kailua vacation rental just before 9:30 a.m. and arrived at the nearby base about five minutes later.

This is the 14th day of the Obamas' annual two-week vacation in the 50th state. The first family is scheduled to depart Hawaii for Washington, D.C., on Sunday.
