If plane loads of Americans and Japanese, golfers and non golfers alike makes a beeline in this little bridge for their photos to be taken then it must be really good. Somewhat like the Eiffel Tower! Easy to access, the water underneath is very clear and clean you almost feel like you want to dive in for a swim. It's the beautiful backdrop of the Royal and Ancient building and the blending of the first and eighteen fairways that makes this bridge the perfect spot for a souvenir photo. The fact is all the golf gods has crossed this bridge you'll feel that you get to be a part of history if only for a minute. For free and easy parking go over the Swilcan Restaurant and Pro shop car park. You can check out the merchandise in the pro shop (all over priced obviously). You can either walk towards the RA building and watch the nervous group teeing off on the 1st and the group putting on the 18th or directly cross over on the middle of the 1st and 18th fairway (make sure you are clear before walking across) if you are in a hurry to get to the bridge. There is a guided tour (highly recommended and very cheap), Just go to the hut located on the right side of R&A building where you can meet the official guide. Duration of tour is one hour.
