Since being sworn in as president in January, Donald Trump has visited a golf course that bears his name 13 times. On Sunday, Trump visited Trump National Golf Club in Sterling, Virginia, contradicting a Fox News report that he was at the White House.

White House officials didn’t immediately confirm whether Trump played golf during his visit until images of him in golf clothes and a golf cart surfaced. The White House reported that the president was there to hold three meetings at the clubhouse. Pool reporters were told there were "meetings" but were not given any additional information.

Trump has faced many backlashes over his golfing habits, but according to White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer, the president doesn't always play golf. In most cases, he's taking meetings and calls at the clubhouse, Spicer said last week.

"On a couple of occasions he's actually conducted meetings there, he's actually had phone calls, so just because he heads there doesn't mean that that's what's happening," Spicer said during the daily press briefing Monday referring to Trump’s club.

Trump, did, in fact, hold a brief meeting with members of his Cabinet and senior staff earlier this month and met with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe at Mar-a-Lago in Florida during his February visit to the U.S.

However, it's no secret that Trump might have also used the time to play golf.

"… I think you saw him utilize this as an opportunity with Prime Minister Abe to help foster deeper relationships in Southeast Asia — in Asia, rather, and have a growing relationship that’s going to help U.S. interests. How you use the game of golf is something that he’s talked about," Spicer said.

Both Trump and Spicer have bashed former President Barack Obama for spending time on the golf course. CBS News' White House correspondent Mark Knoller totaled Obama's time on the golf course as president at 333 rounds.

During Trump’s campaign speech in Virginia last August he said he wouldn't have "time to go play golf." The day before the election in New Hampshire he said Obama has "played more golf than most people on the PGA Tour."

"What is it, over 300 rounds? Hey, look, it’s good. Golf is fine. But always play with leaders of countries and people that can help us! Don’t play with your friends all the time," he said.

Obama played golf about once every 8.8 days compared to Trump who has likely played once every 5.5, according to the Washington Post.
