A famous bridge in the St. Andrews links, the Swilken Bridge is located on the 18th hole of the Old Course. Its magic lies in the history of the Home of Golf where many legends have played memorable games.

The small stone bridge adds a subtle yet beautiful aspect to the fine greenery all around and was built 700 years back as a bridge for shepherds. Today, it holds the magic of the game and is the perfect spot to take a photo of the course.

  • After travelling up north for nearly 12 hours from London, I finally made it to the historic Swilken Bridge of the Old Course in St. Andrews - the birthplace of golf. It is a feat that I would reminisce for countless years to come. I did not have the opportunity to play a round but I spent an hour walking around the periphery of the greens and fairways. And I had to be cautious of flying balls when a play is in progress on the course.

  • Just being there was so special!

  • Go there, and get your picture taken. Walk in the footsteps of Bobby Jones, Arnold palmer, Tom Watson.....
