(AP) WASHINGTON - WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama squeezed in another round of golf before ending a long weekend with childhood friends in Southern California.

Obama's group returned to the Porcupine Creek golf course in Rancho Mirage, California, on Monday. It's also where they played on Sunday.

The course is owned by Larry Ellison, the billionaire co-founder of the Oracle software company.

Obama's friends grew up with him in Hawaii. They are the president's regular golf companions when he is on the West Coast.

Obama spent Presidents Day weekend in Southern California without his wife and daughters.

He returned to Washington Monday night.
