Wind will be a key factor re. speed of greens.

The course is extremely picturesque, with stunning sea views. It has had a lot of rain in the last 4-5 days, so will be playing longer than normal. There are a lot of ditches on the course, and many downhill tee shots. There have also been very high winds in the last couple of weeks, and hundreds of trees have been felled or damaged.
