OAK BLUFFS, Mass. >> President Barack Obama hit the links on his Martha's Vineyard vacation with comedian Larry David.

The president played five hours of golf Saturday in an unlikely foursome that included the "Curb Your Enthusiasm" star, former U.S. trade representative Ron Kirk and businessman Glenn Hutchins, a part owner of the Boston Celtics.

Obama spent a couple hours Saturday morning with his wife and daughters on a private beach on the island's south shore. The first family went out for dinner Saturday night at The Boathouse Restaurant, which overlooks the harbor in historic Edgartown.

The president has kept a low profile during his stay and spent most days golfing. He spoke out publicly only once, to condemn escalating violence in Egypt. He flies back to Washington on Sunday night.
