Golf Place

St Andrews

KY16 9SF




Once used by shepherds and cattlemen to take their livestock to fresh pastures, the 700-year-old Swilcan Bridge stands in the middle of the 18th fairway of the legendary St Andrews’ Old Course, providing a means of crossing the Swilcan Burn as it meanders across the course towards the sea. 

As a result, the Swilcan Bridge has become a ‘must-pose’ landmark for the many thousands of golfers who play at St Andrews every year, including the world’s top professionals. Just don’t stand on the Swilcan Bridge for too long or you’ll break golf’s unwritten rule of never allowing selfies to slow down play on the world’s most famous golf course.
