NORTH LAS VEGAS, Nev. (AP) - President Barack Obama is playing golf at an exclusive Las Vegas-area course with a retired shortstop, a Democratic Party donor and a newspaper owner.

After Obama took about five hours to play the 18 holes at Shadow Creek in North Las Vegas on Saturday, the White House said that he had decided to play an additional nine holes.

His foursome includes retired New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter, Obama campaign supporter Stephen Cloobeck and the owner of the Las Vegas Sun newspaper, Brian Greenspun.

Casino mogul Steve Wynn built Shadow Creek in 1989; it is now owned by MGM Resorts International.

Obama is spending the weekend in Nevada after delivering an immigration speech in Las Vegas on Friday.

He returns to the White House on Sunday.
