The Morning Chronicle noted the unusual sight of a Scottish mariner teeing up a couple of “gutties” on the Plains of Abraham in 1854. The now familiar Scottish tradition, the sport of golf, will be returning to the Plains this week after nearly a century-long absence as part of the city’s 400th anniversary celebrations.
