A luxury extension at the home of golf

Robertson has delivered a luxury extension and refurbishment at the clubhouse of The Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews, the oldest golf club in the world. The club, originally established in 1754, has been a leading authority in golf for over two and a half centuries.

We have altered, extended and refurbished the existing basement of the clubhouse, which overlooks the 18th hole of The Old Course at St Andrews links, one of seven courses in the town – known worldwide as the home of golf.

Key facts

  • bag storage racking
  • new female locker rooms
  • large members lounge
  • improved golf concierge area

Technical expertise for a complex basement extension

Bringing our technical expertise to this prestigious project, we have constructed concrete basement extensions to the north and south of the existing historic clubhouse, alongside internal alterations.  

These complex works were carried out while the surrounding golf facilities remained in operation. Excavation, piled retaining structures, structural alterations, reinforcements and extensive temporary works were carefully managed. 

A luxury interior

The finished project enjoys a high specification interior, designed by Goddard Littlefair, to a standard befitting one of the most prestigious golf clubs in the world. To create this luxury space, we managed the fit-out to an exceptional standard with the specified materials including oak panelling, timber flooring and marble, with fully bespoke concierge and reception desks.
