DH and I want to plan a short getaway so that he can go somewhere and play golf. We can go to Bahrain any time we want - and from what I have recently heard, the new Riffa golf course is not as nice as the old Riffa golf course. So, Bahrain is out. We've been to Dubai. I could go there again. We want to go somewhere fairly close-by. Oman is a possibility. [AIO, can you help me out here? What's the golf like there?]
I'm thinking Abu Dhabi, though. Can anyone give me recommendations as to what the golf courses are like there? Will there be a lot of choice or limited choice? If DH is going to be playing golf all day - I want to be laying on the beach [we will go in April] reading, and drinking icey cold beverages that have little umbrellas and rum in them... Recommendations for that? What is the shopping like? Is an abeya required to be worn by Western women, or is Saudi Arabia the only country in the Middle East that requires us to don black before we leave the house?
Any assistance that Abu Dhabi visitors to this blog could provide to us would be most appreciated!!!
