Old Course - Swilcan Bridge
The Swilcan Burn meanders across the first
and 18th fairways, and provides the only water hazard on the Old
Course before emptying into the North Sea at the Southern end
of the West Sands. The
little stone bridge, of Roman design, was not provided for the
convenience of golfers, but was part of the usual route from town
to the harbour area in the Eden estuary. Golfers cross the bridge
on their final sojourn up the 18th fairway, and usually stop for
a most memorable photograph there.
Also visible in this scene are the Links
Clubhouse, the Old Course Hotel, The Ladies Putting Club at the
Himalayas, and in (the distance) the Royal and Ancient Golf Club.
