President Obama's golf trip, visiting Treasure Coast's Florida Golf and Yacht Club

This will be President Obama's 114th round of golf

PALM CITY, Fla. -- - President Barack Obama's visit to the Treasure Coast on Friday evening remained under wraps as both law enforcement and the Floridian Golf and Yacht Club kept quiet about the details of the presidents trip.

A constant flow of St. Lucie County Sheriff's vehicles continued to drive in and out of the exclusive golf destination through Friday evening. Deputies could be seen stopping one another, going over plans for the visit.

The sheriff's office would not comment about its role in the trip and said all inquires should be dealt through the Secret Service.

A deputy, who wished to remain anonymous, did confirm that the sheriff's office is prepared to close Becker Road for President Obama's arrival, but would not confirm if that would be necessary.

Other sources have also indicated President Obama could arrive at the Floridian aboard helicopter Marine One and land on the grounds of the Floridian.

A spokesperson from Witham Field in nearby Stuart, Florida said they are not expecting a visit from President Obama.

Once inside the grounds of the Florida, President Obama is expected to work on his golf game with Tiger Woods' former swing coach Butch Harmon.

This will be the 114th game of golf President Obama has played since taking office, the first time he has played on a course in Florida.

The Floridian is owned by Houston Astros owner Jim Crane, who gave thousands of dollars during President Obama's re-election campaign.

No official business is expected during the trip according to the White House. The trip comes just as Congress will be taking a week long break.
