Former President Bill Clinton stopped by Genoa Lakes Golf Club in Douglas County on Wednesday for a round of golf and relaxation.

Course owner Fred Gartrell said they were asked not to make a big announcement about the former president’s visit, that Clinton was just “taking a break.” He said the ex-president wasn’t planning any public event.

“I’m the owner and they ran me off,” said Gartrell, noting Clinton was accompanied by a contingent of Secret Service.

“They’re out there playing right now,” he said.

Gartrell said Clinton was headed up to Lake Tahoe on Wednesday evening for a speech.
