Obama's extravagant vacations

The Washington Examiner has a story on the Obama vacations. I would like to know if any other president has made such an expensive vacation trip just for a chance to play golf. I understand why a president who is on vacation might spend time playing golf, but going on a trip just to play golf?

Golf vacation

2013, Feb. 16-18, President Obama flew to Palm Springs, Ca., for three days of golf.
2013, June 26–July 2, Michelle toured African nations with Sasha and Malia after meeting up with president.
2014, March 8-9, the president and first lady traveled to Key Largo, Fla., for a golfing vacation.
2015, Feb. 15-17, President Obama traveled again to Palm Springs for a boys weekend of golf.

How about the first lady taking exotic trips with just her and her children?
