President Donald Trump recently installed a new golf simulator at the White House, according to a report from the Washington Post. 

Trump footed the bill for the $50,000 room-sized fixture, the Post reported, noting that it replaced a previous system installed by President Barack Obama that was less advanced. 

The simulator allows one to play virtual rounds of golf by hitting balls at a large screen.

The Post, citing unnamed sources, said Trump has yet to use the new equipment, which was installed sometime over the last few weeks.

Much attention has been paid to Trump's love of golf. Over his first two years in office, the president has spent more than 160 days golfing, much of which was spent teeing off at one of his properties and golf clubs across the U.S. and abroad, according to an estimate by CNN. 

Trump has spent more days at the golf course than Obama, though before becoming president, Trump frequently criticized Obama for the amount of time he spent playing the sport. 

"President Obama has a major meeting on the N.Y.C. Ebola outbreak, with people flying in from all over the country, but decided to play golf!" Trump tweeted in 2014. 

Trump owns two golf courses in Scotland, Trump Turnberry in South Ayrshire and another in Aberdeen.

It was reported by The Scotsman that a number of ads placed for his global hotels and golf course portfolio had been removed by Facebook, apparently over new rules covering political advertising.

However, no reason was detailed for the move

The installation of the golfing equipment comes amid intense scrutiny surrounding leaked copies of Trump's schedule, where 50 to 60 percent of his days in the office were labelled "executive time," meaning he has no meetings or official business. 

Two waves of leaked schedules given to Axios generated a wave of outrage and indignation from people who claimed the leak showed that the president was spending most of his time watching Fox News, firing off tweets or chatting on the phone. 

White House acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney has said that he is aiming to identify the staffer who leaked Trump's personal schedule to the news media, saying earlier this week that he hoped "to have a resolution on that this week."
