“You;ve got to!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

Even though it was fenced off you've got to walk accross it! Visited on a day when it had just snowed and it was very slippy! Still the old course looked beautiful!

“Iconic Golf Image”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

To a golfer or fan of golf, there is not a more iconic image. My friends and I had tea in the Rusacks Hotel restaurant watching for our husbands to approach the bridge. When they did, we went out to take their pictures. This is one of our favorite memories of our trip to Scotland.

“Real character in miniature”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013 via mobile

A real tick one to tick off in the golfing world , just so you can say " I was there" as the golfing greats step over it on tv .
In reality small in size , but large in character .
Part of the Old Course golf links , but open to public every Sunday to walk on as the course is rested .

“Did you know?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

That because the golf course is municipal they have a path you can walk on? It was like seeing the pyramids or standing on the Rialto bridge in Venice when I stood on this iconic piece of golfing history!
A must see and do when visiting the home of golf.
