| Dixie Dunbar
was a well respected member of the Somerton Bowling
Club. After his passing it was revealed that he
bequeathed a large endowment to the club.
In respect to Dixie's bequest, the Club decided to show their gratitude by naming Green "A" after him - now known as The Dixie Dunbar green. This green was officially opened by the South Australian House of Assembly Labor Minister for Bright, Chloe Fox in April 2012.
A Dixie Dunbar Tournament is held every April to commemorate his generosity. This tournament is open to all clubs within South Australia with very lucrative prizes for the winners. Since its inception the tournament has been a great success.
