NORTH LAS VEGAS, Nevada — President Barack Obama is playing golf at an exclusive Las Vegas-area course with a retired shortstop, a Democratic Party donor and a newspaper owner.

The White House says the foursome at the Shadow Creek golf course in North Las Vegas on Saturday includes retired New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter, Obama campaign supporter Stephen Cloobeck and Brian Greenspun, owner of the Las Vegas Sun newspaper.

Casino mogul Steve Wynn built Shadow Creek in 1989 out of empty desert flatland. It is now owned by MGM Resorts International.

Obama flew to Las Vegas on Friday to discuss actions he's taken to lift the threat of deportation from nearly 5 million people living illegally in the U.S.

On Sunday he returns to the White House.
