Golf advice please

We are travelling to Dubai for the first time in March and want to play some golf. Is it easy to book tee times once we get there or should we book before we go? Is it likely to be cheaper either way. We are staying at Jumeriah beach area, are the courses easily accessible from there? Also, is the dress code the same as on UK courses - am I (female) ok to wear shorts/ skorts? Many thanks

There is plenty of choice for golfers and it's easy to book tee times when you are there, although if you want a particular time then maybe book on line before you go. The price will be the same and if you have an Entertainer voucher book then some of the courses offer 2 for 1 vouchers in there.

The dress code is the same and each club web site lists their etiquette standards etc.

Several course are easily accessible by cab from Jumeirah beach, although it depends where on Jumeirah beach as it is 50kms long.

I would look at Emirates Golf Course and Montgomerie golf course as they are both near to the Marina end of the beach.

If you are at the city end of the beach then Dubai Yacht and Golf Club and Al Badia courses will be closer to you.

There are others such as The Els course, Arabian Ranches and Jebel Ali.

If you want to play mid week (Sunday to Thursday) you should get a tee time no problem but it can be difficult on the weekend (Friday and Saturday) so book in advance if you want to play then.
