There is a woman's golf society thing at Arabian Ranches golf club, but I'm sure the rest of the courses would have something similiar
But Gavtek, you are from the home of golf! Surely every Scottish person is a single handicapper??Lol I'm the same and have been wondering the same thing.
They are usually not very strict. Especially when not very busy. You need to look smart and claim a high handicap (do not say that you do not have one).How strict are they with the Playing Standard rules ?
Standard of Play
The Resort is available to players of the following standard:
• Holder of an official handicap certificate (max 28 for men, 45 for ladies)
• Holder of a current playing certificate or a very experienced non-handicap player
I love the game, just not very good
Yep agree. The vast majority of the golf courses are the regular green ones not the sand ones - I think there is only of those. The green fees are quite a bit more expensive than the States though. The claim is that all the water used to irrigate the courses has to be desalinated etc. But I think, as with everything that caters to western expats, the prices are jacked up because people will pay.The one thing you won`t have to worry about is the quality of the golf courses here as no expense has been spared in creating some of them. The Greg Norman Earth course on which the last weeks Dubai World Championships was held is a good example. The sand in the bunkers was imported from Carolina and is the same as that used in the bunkers at Augusta. If you like your golf then you will be spoilt for choice out here!!
Capris shouldn't be a problem. I've seen other women wearing them. Just do a drive by to check out Emirates GC. Some guys wear t shirts and jeans, but the flip flops for footwear is typically frowned upon.Can you wear capris at the golf courses here? Is there a specific dress code like kakis and a polo? Back home, ever course was different and just want to check. My clubs have finally gotten here, its just a matter of getting them now and hopefully going to go this week.
