    Just three months after the Olympics ended, Rio's beautiful but controversial golf course is eerily quiet with birds' squawks far louder than the whack of balls. Built specially for the 2016 Games on what had been a nature reserve next to the beach in western Rio, the links-style course was meant to convert Brazilians to a sport they barely know and put the city on the international golfing map. But the $19 million facility created by star US designer Gil Hanse risks turning into a white elephant instead. A payment dispute could even lead to the imminent exit of the...

Sources told the New York Post that the Obamas have purchased a home in Rancho Mirage, California.

    George Soros’s hedge fund Soros Fund Management sold its stake in a widely used gold exchange-traded fund in the third quarter, according to a regulatory filing out Monday. The fund reported no stake in the SPDR Gold Trust GLD, +0.58%  in the period ended Sept. 30. That’s after disclosing a position worth $30.4 million in a second-quarter filing. The storied billionaire investor had attracted attention during the second quarter for being generally bearish on world markets — and scooping up safety-play gold.

    Residents in Doonbeg are hopeful the largest landowner in their parish, Donald Trump, will be returning to the village as the 45th president of the United States.

I wish Trump the best, said Martin Kelly. I hope he does get in. He is a good guy. He is positive, he is not perfect. I think he is a good...

    A boys weekend of golf with Tiger Woods in 2013 was fun for President Obama, but it was a triple-bogey for taxpayers. The Government Accountability Office reported Wednesday that the departments of Defense and Homeland Security spent more than $3.6 million in travel costs and other expenses for Mr. Obamas getaway weekend with Mr. Woods and other golf partners at an exclusive resort in Florida. The audit said the costs included operation of Air Force One, which costs about $200,000 per hour of flight, plus a virtual squadron of supporting aircraft and U.S. Coast Guard small boats, as well as...

    New book declares Donald Trump an environmental hero When Donald Trump offered to spend $10 million revamping the county golf course in Crandon Park, his top negotiator made one thing perfectly clear: the 20-foot trees along the shoreline had grown much too tall for the moguls tastes.

    EDGARTOWN, Mass. (AP) President Barack Obama is unlikely to break from a New England vacation to survey flood damage in Louisiana, despite calls for him to visit and meet with responders and victims. The White House insists Obama is not indifferent to the suffering of thousands who were washed out of their homes in the Baton Rouge and Lafayette areas of the state. At least 13 people have died as a result of the flooding, and at one point 11,000 were in shelters. That number has dropped as water levels have receded.

If Tiger Woods spoke for Trump, I suppose Maddow would dismiss him as the 628th golfer in the world...

    In 2015, Lansings city government used $555,000 from its general fund to pay for its money-losing municipal golf course. That was not an unusual year; Groesbeck Golf Course has received money from the citys general fund every year since at least 2005. In those 11 years, Lansings general fund has transferred $5.9 million to the golf course. These transfers compensate for the municipal courses losses, which annually total of at least $400,000. Cities get into the golf business believing that they will make money. But a review of public courses in Michigan shows that, in practice, they are big losers...
