Kohler Co has announced official development plans for Hamilton Grand, one of golf’s most photographed and iconic buildings. Located adjacent to the Royal & Ancient Golf Club in St. Andrews, Hamilton Grand overlooks the 18th Green of the Old Course, The West Sands Beach and the Bay of St. Andrews.
Hamilton Grand will become the fourth historic property restored and renovated by Kohler Co. which states: “We are looking forward to restoring the building using our restoration expertise, and returning a piece of Scottish history to its landmark status.”
There will be a total of 26 private residences ranging from two-, three- and four-bedroom apartments, including a penthouse with expansive 360-degree views and a private balcony.

Kohler Co., through its subsidiary, The Old Course Limited, purchased Hamilton Grand in late 2009. After meetings with St. Andrews citizens .and the local Council, Kohler Co.’s first step was to officially change the name to “Hamilton Grand,” combining the titles of the building’s previous uses, the Grand Hotel, which opened in 1895, and Hamilton Hall, the University of St Andrews dormitory named after its Founder Thomas Hamilton.
“Our goal is to restore Hamilton Grand and create a dwelling that will make the people of St. Andrews proud,” said Debbie Taylor, President – Hospitality and Real Estate Group, Kohler Co. “We have been honored to work with community members throughout this process. With their support, we are pleased to unveil our plans to the rest of the world.”
Hamilton Grand will also feature a Grill Restaurant and Bar, open to the public, and a Members’ Library on the ground floor.
“Hamilton Grand will be a unique real estate opportunity for those who want to own a home in the birthplace of golf and a premier destination that is rich in history – the holy grail of golf,” said Taylor. “We are looking forward to restoring the building using our restoration expertise, and returning a piece of Scottish history to its landmark status.”
