ALAN GALL REPORTS:
A strong contingent of 94 players made the trip to Spey Bay today.  The weather was decidedly Spring-like with light breezes to begin with followed by strengthening winds from 1pm.  Very good Summer greens in play with preferred lies on fairways being a welcome change from winter mats.  
The Spey Bay course suffered severe damage during the long dry spell in 2018 with the failure of the course watering system occurring at just the worst time.  As a result, to avoid further damage to normal tees, teeing grounds today were very rough which caused some difficulty for players.  
 2018 probably the worst year for greenkeepers across the North-east of Scotland for many a year.
