KAILUA, Hawaii -

On his first full day of vacation on Oahu, President Barack Obama hit the golf links at the Kaneohe Marine Corp Base with wife Michelle Obama taking calls from children as part of NORAD's monitoring of Santa's Christmas deliveries.

President Obama left his new rental home around 11:32 a.m. Saturday for his first round of golf under what press pool reporters described as "dicey" weather, which consisted of occasional showers.

He was seen golfing with some familiar names: Eric Whitaker, Mike Ramos, Greg Orme, Bobby Titcomb, Sam Kass, and Marvin Nicholson.

The new rental home occupied by the Obamas during their holiday vacation is reported to be a few doors down from their former house, which they stayed in the last three years.

Mrs. Obama spent part of the day answering calls from children from across the country asking where Santa was located as part of the annual North American Aerospace Defense Command, NORAD, Tracks Santa program. She participated in the program last year.
