Any specific comments – Due to one of the coldest winters on record (frost for the first time) the rough has not developed to its normal strength so will not present that much of a penalty.

In advance – The weather has been extremely cold over the winter and in the last few weeks there has been a reasonable amount of rain
Forecast for tournament – Moderate NW winds with mostly overcast/showery weather but occasionally fine - max temps about 23 degrees – minimum 12 degrees.
