The Stornoway Trust is "not inclined" to allow Sunday golf
Stornoway Golf Club is to decide whether to take legal action to allow Sunday golf on Lewis.
The club leases its course under a long list of regulations laid down by landlord, the Stornoway Trust.
At a meeting last month, the trust said it was "not inclined to accept" an application for club members to be allowed to play seven days a week.
The club claims the 100-year-old rule could be breaching its members' human rights.
Committee members were due to meet on Thursday to consider the possibility of pursuing legal action.
However, the golf club said that it was keen to preserve a harmonious relationship with its landlord and had not given up hope that an amicable solution can be found.
Golf club secretary Ken Galloway said members felt that the current arrangement just did not make sense.
A spokesman for the trust said that the lease between the two parties was up for renewal in eight years time.
He added that the trust had a wider role in the Lewis community and that there was strong opposition locally to Sunday golf.
The Stornoway Golf Club rents the course for a minimal amount and claims attitudes have mellowed since the current lease was signed about 20 years ago.
