The club had applied for a £75,000 grant
A Western Isles golf course is sticking to its guns about staying shut on a Sunday to observe the Sabbath.
The Scarista course on Harris has applied to SportScotland for £75,000, but the agency may reject the bid under equality laws.
It said it had a legal duty to ensure public funds were used for facilities which provided the widest access.
But at its annual meeting, club members decided to maintain the policy of closing on Sunday.
Willie Fulton from the club said he was hopeful an agreement could be reached with SportsScotland.
But if not, he said the club would give up the funding.
