The President’s trips to his private club in Florida since his 20 January inauguration has, so far, cost an estimated $20m (£15.9m), according to CNN.
Mr Trump’s golf trip on Friday came as North Korea’s military threatened a “merciless” response to any US provocation.
“Trump is always making provocations with his aggressive words,” North Korea Vice Minister Han Song Ryol told the Associated Press on Friday.
“It’s not the [Democratic People’s Republic of Korea] but the US and Trump that makes trouble.”
North Korea has continued to hold nuclear weapons tests in recent months, ignoring strong warnings from Mr Trump and other world leaders.
Pyongyang tested two ballistic missiles in the last year, and has claimed to be close to developing an “intercontinental ballistic missile” that could reach the US.
Neighbouring countries have also expressed fears that North Korea will launch another major test or take some form of action on Saturday, as part of its ‘Day of the Sun’ celebrations, marking the 105th anniversary of the birthday of the country’s founder Kim Il-sung.
