The New York Times reported:

[Melody] Barnes, the president’s chief domestic policy adviser, became the first woman to play a round of golf with Mr. Obama since he tee’d off his presidency in January. The milestone is noteworthy as Mr. Obama has come under criticism recently for hosting a basketball game earlier this month for members of his cabinet and congress that included no women…
