Fourteen-time major champion and the President-elect played in a foursome with two Trump staffers at Trump International in West Palm Beach, Florida. Both men live in the area.
Woods tweeted a picture of himself dressed as a different sort of Santa Claus - the 'Mac Daddy Santa' - which apparently is a buff, shirtless, Santa with white hair under an Oakland Raiders cap on Thursday.
The 40-year-old's alternative picture went viral and he was in the limelight again a day later.
No word on how well Trump, reportedly a low single-digit handicap, or Woods played.
Woods is no stranger to presidential golf outings. He played a round with President Obama three years ago in Panama City.
