A bridge is the answer, of course!

This is a stone bridge we saw in a prestigious golf course in Dornoch Scotland on our tour of walls that Margot Miller organized in June of 2015.  While it, nor the famous one at he course at St Andrews is not dry laid, it still looks very attractive.

It always surprises me why so few golf courses here in Canada and the States have stone bridges, of any kind. 

Considering the obvious Scottish link, I would think a well built stone bridge at one or two holes, especially dry stone ones, would provide that perfect combination of picturesque aesthetic and authenticity to any club.

Any ideas why this is not the case?
