Here you can just barely see his orangeness swinging his club through the trees:
Trump on the golf course today, captured by CNN cameras https://t.co/hctg9sO23e

Well now the White House is being accused of taking this secrecy to a whole new level, with photographers noting a white truck blocking the way from reporters gaining access to Trump’s golf outing, with The Washington Post’s Paul Farhi noting that the truck seemed to move along with the cameras, with the sole intent of restricting access.
Mysterious white truck blocked TV news crew from getting shots of Trump playing golf in Fla., I’m told. As photojournalist moved the camera, he said, truck moved w/him to block the picture. The unmarked truck parked when Trump was apparently at hole, then drove off after.

CNN also noticed the truck, with Don Lemon devoting a segment to it. Lemon accused Trump of “hypocrisy” for golfing so much, 87 times by their count, when he had previously heaped so much scorn on Barack Obama for partaking in the sport during his time in the job.

“The President and his staff don’t really tell us when he is golfing and we have taken to going outside of the golf course and filming him as he golfs through a break in the hedges near the club,” Dan Merica told Lemon. “Today a big, white box truck parked in front of those hedges, trying to obscure our shot of President Trump golfing.”
“The President and the White House have tried to obscure the fact that President Trump golfs on a regular basis,” Merica continued, shrugging off concerns that filming the president golf could be considered trivial, given that it is the job of the press to track what presidents do on a daily basis.
Lemon responded, “I believe the word is hypocrisy, Dan. Hypocrisy.”
The Secret Service denies they are involved in truck-gate, as does Palm Beach County:
