Seinfeld co-creator and Curb Your Enthusiasm star Larry David joined President Obama on the golf course Thursday as the president continued his annual summer vacation in Martha’s Vineyard.

According to The Hill, David and Obama were joined by businessmen Robert Wolf and Jonathan Lavine, both of whom have frequently played golf with the president in the past.

David has also hit the links with Obama before, both during the president’s 2013 and 2015 trips to Martha’s Vineyard.

Obama kicked off his annual vacation to the Massachusetts island last week by playing his 300th round of golf as president. As Breitbart’s Charlie Spiering noted, former President George W. Bush played 24 rounds of golf over his two terms, while former President Woodrow Wilson played a record 1,200 rounds during his presidency.

Obama has faced criticism in the past over the timing of his golf outings.

On Thursday, Louisiana newspaper The Advocate called for Obama to cut his vacation short as widespread flooding has killed thirteen people and displaced tens of thousands more in what the Red Cross has called the worst natural disaster since Hurricane Sandy in 2012.
