The score varies by game variant:
The trick score for the deal equals or exceeds 100, so a game has been bid and made. If this game is the second by the same partnership of the rubber, an additional Rubber Bonus of either 500 or 700 would be scored above the line.
Presumably the disagreement inciting the question is to do with how to score the points earned as doubled - i.e. the trick score above points as 120 - 60. The Rules of Rubber Bridge state clearly:
Law 72 - Points Earned
The result of each deal played is recorded in points, which fall into two classes:
A. Trick Points: Only declarer’s side can earn trick points and only by fulfilling the contract. Only the value of tricks named in the contract may be scored as trick points (see Law 81). ....
Law 81 - Scoring Table
Scored below the line by declarer’s side, if contract is fulfilled:
For each Trick over six, bid and made ... Doubled [in Clubs]: 40
Scored above the line by declarer’s side
For winning the rubber, if opponents have won no game 700
For winning the rubber, if opponents have won one game 500
For making any doubled contract: 50
Further down it makes clear that the slam bonuses are scored only for contracts where 12 tricks (small slam) or 13 tricks (grand slam) have been both bid and made.
There are no further premium points scored as there were no overtricks made.
(The latter sometimes also termed Four Deal or Party Bridge scoring.)
There is a variant of Chicago scoring that makes use of above- and below-line scoring, but that is of no consequence on a hand where game is bid and made (ie trick score >= 100), as here.
In Duplicate Bridge (contract Bridge) the most commonly played bridge.
Vulnerable (red zone): 670 (40+40+40+500+50p)
Not Vulnerable (green zone): 470 (40+40+40+300+50p)

40p For making each Doubled odd trick bid...
500p For making GAME Vulnerable
300p For making GAME, Not Vulnerable
50p For making any Doubled, but not Redoubled contract
2 of a major doubled is game, as is 2NT and 3 of a minor.
When you bid such a contract and are doubled, you have been doubled into game, and you receive the full game bonus.
