President Barack Obama hit a major milestone as he marked his 100th time on the links during a Father’s Day weekend getaway in his hometown of Chicago.

Despite the fact that the 50-year-old Obama had never golfed before taking office in 2009, his love of the game is well known, and often subjected to criticism by conservative pundits and political opponents.

In April, presumptive republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, who is not a golfer, told a conservative radio host that Obama’s love for the game displayed a poor work ethic, ABC News reported.

‘I scratch my head at the capacity of the president to take four hours off on such a regular basis to go golfing,’ he said. ‘I would think you could kind of suck it up for four years, particularly when the American people are out of work.’

On warm-weather weekends, the president frequently visits two courses in the Washington area, Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland and Fort Belvoir in Virginia, where he can relax outdoors away from the press corp.

Typically close friends or junior aides join him as partners, as was the case on Sunday when he brought Marty Nesbitt, a neighbor from the windy city, to the Beverly Country Club. His golf entourage also included long-time friend included Eric Whitaker and Marvin Nicholson, the White House trip director.

According to the right-leaning blog the White House Dossier, the president golfed 28 times in 2009, 30 times in 2010 and 34 times in 2011.

    Some Golf Pro once said something like, "Show me a business man with a good golf score, and I'll show you a guy whose business is in trouble."

    Sounds like Barry's Presidency to me.

    While he was in Chicago partying down the street, and around Chicago 35 people were injured, and 7 killed from gun violence. What's Obama have to say about that?

    If he plays with a white ball, he's a hypocrite.
    If he plays with a black ball, he's racist.
    If he plays with a rainbow colored ball, he's pandering to gays.
    If he plays with a ball made from China he's unAmerican.
    If he plays with a non-Union ball he's alienating his Union support.
    Clearly, the President needs to give up golfing.

    Probably the only way to save the country is to KEEP him there, 24-7, no breaks. No phones, no contacts. He could just have a little pop-up card or something at the oval office that says "PRESENT" (but of course he wouldn't be ...ya' know...just sayin'...)..

    What I would have to say ..
    would be a violation of TOS on me ..
    I've got my set of Golf Clubs ..
    but in no way .. over the DECADES of my Adulthood ..
    I've ever had the chance to even do a portion of this
    (in terms of actual rounds of golf .. I believe it is more like one round every few years) ..

    I would like to ask if he is ready to play Tiger Woods yet; that seemed to be his goal
    when he came into office. I would also like to suggest that that fete might be within
    his range now that both of them have proven to be less than competent.

    Whether you like your U.S. President or not, he holds the most stressfull job in the United States and does deserve some relaxation. Bush Jr. took the most time off to sometimes do the same out of all our recent presidents.
