After two-and-a-half hours on the beach, Barack Obama spent the last full day of his vacation on Martha's Vineyard playing yet another round of golf. Included in the president's foursome Saturday: Larry David, "Seinfeld" co-creator and star of HBO's "Curb Your Enthusiasm."

According to the White House, they were joined at Farm Neck Golf Club in Oak Bluffs by Glenn Hutchins, a private equity investor, and Ron Kirk, a former U.S. trade representative.

David, who stars in a new HBO movie ("Clear History") set on Martha's Vineyard, has had a home on the Massachusetts island for several years. No word on what Obama and David, the inspiration for the George Costanza character on "Seinfeld," discussed during their five-hour round.

But bumping into David on Martha's Vineyard isn't too difficult.

Earlier this year, writer Paul Samuel Dolman published a book — "Hitchhiking With Larry David" — about the experience of being picked up and driven across the island by the comedian.

Obama is scheduled to depart Cape Cod and return to the White House on Sunday.
