President Trump will soon bid adieu to his favorite hangout, Mar-a-Lago, while it closes for the summer season after Mother’s Day. 

As Politico first reported, Trump will likely replace trips to the “winter White House” with visits to the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey. According to a Federal Aviation Notice spotted by the Palm Beach Post, the president is planning on residing there as early as this weekend after a quick trip to New York City. 

Before the federal government decides to officially promote the golf club (like it did with Mar-a-Lago), we rounded up a few photos and facts about the president’s new favorite escape. 

1. The membership fee is reportedly around $350,000.
