    The earliest record of Curling in Sarnia dates back to 1866 when a few enthusiasts would clear the snow off Sarnia Bay. In 1870 an outdoor rink was operated on London Road and in 1874 the first indoor rink with two sheets of ice was built at 180 Christina Street South.
    The beginning of golf in Sarnia dates back to 1900 when a number of young people knocked a ball around an open field near Christina and Exmouth Street. In 1907 a few enthusiasts laid out a nine-hole course with sand greens. The only rule was that once you had played a green it was your duty to smooth out any footprints on the green by running over the "green" with a piece of carpet that was fastened to a brick. Players hung their coats on the back of a "Sarnia Wollen Mills" sign at the corner of Christina and Exmouth Streets. It was the theft of a favourite pipe and tobacco pouch that led to the construction of a clubhouse.
