Scheduled for completion by the end of March 2013, the investment will see 40 bedrooms, including four Junior and Senior Suites, transformed to complement the "classical elegance, comfort and style" of the hotel.

Kevin Keenan, general manager at Macdonald Rusacks Hotel, said: "2012 marked a really successful year for the hotel as we won the award for Best Large Hotel at the Scottish Golf Tourism Awards and achieved a third AA Rosette in our Rocca Bar & Grill restaurant. This £650,000 investment represents another significant milestone for our iconic hotel.’

Every room will be named after golfing greats or stories linked to St. Andrews, on completion, guests may choose to stay within the Young Tom Morris Junior Suite or Old Tom Morris Senior Suite. Both offer dramatic views over the Old Course and to the sweep of West Sands beach and the North Sea beyond.
