Donald Trump's White House has long since abandoned the idea of being upfront about the fact that Trump plays more holes than a coked-out oboe inspector, so unless some rich dude with an Instagram account busts him, there's no way to know for sure if Trump is actually playing golf at his golf club this weekend.

However, we can make an educated guess based on Saturday morning's pool reports (via email from the White House):

Date: October 7, 2017 at 9:16:57 AM EDT

Subject: Pool report 1

On a sunny autumn morning, the president is on the move. Motorcade departed the White House at 9:15. He was wearing red USA cap, white polo shirt and khakis.

Motorcade arrived at Trump National Golf Club at 9:56 and split off. Holding now at Pool Grill.

Maybe he's being briefed on Hurricane Nate, which is strengthening as it approaches the Gulf Coast, by his caddy.
