RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif. - President Barack Obama played golf Sunday on a private California course owned by supporter Larry Ellison, the billionaire co-founder of the Oracle software company.

Ellison ranks third on Forbes' annual list of the 400 richest Americans, with an estimated $41 billion fortune.

His 249-acre desert property in Rancho Mirage came with a 19-hole private golf course. The extra hole is available for playoffs.

The White House said Obama's foursome included childhood friends Bobby Titcomb, Greg Orme and Michael Ramos.

Obama spent the weekend in California after meeting Friday at a resort with Jordan's king. His wife and daughters are skiing in Colorado.

The president was returning to the White House on Monday. On Tuesday, he planned to discuss the economy during a trip to a Safeway distribution centre in the Washington suburb of Upper Marlboro, Md., before heading to Toluca, Mexico, on Wednesday for meetings with Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto and Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper.

On Thursday and Friday, Obama is scheduled to meet with Democratic governors who will be in Washington for the annual winter meeting of the National Governors Association.
