Inquire about this artwork
The golf world’s penultimate landmark—The Swilcan Bridge crossing the Swilcan Burn on the 18th Hole of The Old Course at St. Andrews—marks the first time that Linda Hartough has focused her considerable talents on both an historic structure and a breathtaking course landscape.
From Old Tom Morris and Wille Park, to Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods, the Swilcan Bridge has come to represent the crowning moment of each Open Championship played at The Old Course. As the player crests the Swilcan Bridge and pauses to acknowledge the spectators, flashbulbs erupt and the images resonate across the world and into golf history.
Hartough’s unique perspective transcends a mere photograph to capture not only this hallowed stone bridge, but also the intrinsic beauty of the Village of St. Andrews. With the Royal & Ancient Clubhouse looming majestically in the background, this Swilcan Bridge painting is sure to become one of Linda’s most iconic works.
