Donad Trump plans to be in Scotland for the grand re-opening of Turnberry later this month, but golf might cause him to take another break from his campaign trail. And this time, it won't be to collect some pats on the back.

The presumptive Republican nominee has a different golf course, Trump National Golf Club Jupiter, that's being sued. And Trump, along with his son, Eric, are likely to be called into court as witnesses, according to the Palm Beach Post.

The suit comes from former members of the Ritz Carlton Golf Club in Jupiter, Fla. They claim that when Trump bought the property in 2012 he wrongfully cancelled their memberships and failed to return their deposits -- ranging from $41,000 to $117,000 -- in proper time. According to attorneys, the suit involves dozens of members and totals more than $6 million in damages.

On Thursday, U.S. District Court Judge Kenneth Marra set August 15 as the first possible trial date.
