OAK BLUFFS, Mass. — President Barack Obama wrapped up his Martha's Vineyard vacation by playing golf with comedian Larry David.

The president hit the links for five hours Saturday in an unlikely foursome that included the "Curb Your Enthusiasm" star, former U.S. trade representative Ron Kirk and businessman Glenn Hutchins, a part owner of the Boston Celtics.

Obama has golfed most days during his weeklong getaway, which ends Sunday.

Obama spent a couple hours Saturday morning with his wife and daughters on a private beach on the island's south shore. The first family went out for dinner Saturday night at The Boathouse Restaurant, which overlooks the harbor in historic Edgartown.

The president has kept a low profile during his stay. He spoke out publicly only once, to condemn escalating violence in Egypt.
