Dowl­ings se­cure mixed four­somes ti­tle

Isis Town and Country - - SPORT -

open cham­pion and ladies’ open cham­pion added to their tro­phies with a de­ci­sive win over Kev Sav­age and Vicki McAu­lay, Damien Dowl­ing and He­len Ric­cia­rdi last Sun­day.

For sev­eral years Clin­ton and Fiona have claimed the cham­pi­onship, with the ex­cep­tion of only one year.

The Dowl­ings’ sons are low mark­ers like their fa­ther, with Blake on scratch for his hand­i­cap.

Both have en­sured their fa­ther has no mo­nop­oly on the men’s open cham­pi­onship, Blake win­ning in 2014 and Damien twice be­fore.

This year is Fiona’s third win as she con­tin­ues to bring her hand­i­cap ever lower.

Chris Crouch, a for­mer cham­pion, also shares the record.

With his re­turn to Isis later this year, it makes for an in­ter­est­ing 2017 cham­pi­onship year.

It’s a pity Blake is at univer­sity in Bris­bane but he will be sure to re­turn for some games dur­ing the year.

For their com­mit­ment to golf, their many ster­ling per­for­mances, the Dowl­ings are a force on the green and re­spected mem­bers of Isis Golf Club.
