WASHINGTON — Instead of “Hail to the Chief,” President Barack Obama is most likely hearing strains of “Happy Birthday” this weekend.

Obama turns 52 today and is spending part of the day at the Camp David presidential retreat in Maryland.

The White House said little about how he’s celebrating. He played golf Saturday with friends from his days in Hawaii and Chicago. Some were expected to join him at Camp David.

Obama is scheduled to return to the White House this afternoon. His week ahead includes travel to the West Coast to discuss plans to help homeowners, appear on “The Tonight Show” with Jay Leno and visit with troops at Camp Pendleton.

He also has a White House meeting Thursday with the prime minister of Greece.
