President Barack Obama spent another day on the links, then attended a cocktail party at a West Tisbury home Monday.

The presidential motorcade arrived at Vineyard Golf Club in Edgartown shortly after noon, where Mr. Obama and a foursome that included regular golf partner Vernon Jordan, a businessman and civil rights activist, Ambassador Ron Kirk, former U.S. Trade Representative, and Allison Davis, a Chicago lawyer and real estate executive, played a round.

The group left the course at 4:47 pm, and the president returned to the Chilmark house where he is spending his vacation, according to pool reports.

At about 6 pm, the president and Mrs. Obama traveled to the West Tisbury home of 2012 campaign advisor Broderick Johnson and his wife, former National Public Radio host Michele Norris Johnson, where the first couple attended a cocktail party. The White House released no information about who else was there.

The president and first lady left the party at about 7:30 pm, returning to Chilmark.

The White House then sent pool reporters home, indicating the Obamas will not venture out again this evening.
