Edwin Crowell was born in Halifax, Nova Scotia in 1925. He took up golf at the age of 12 at the Liverpool Golf Club in Queens County. His father did not have anyone to play golf with so he brought Crowell along and taught him the game. He was later influenced by “Kas” Zabowski, a golf pro at Ashburn who instilled in Crowell that there is not a golf shot that can not be played. Between 1946 and 1956 Crowell would capture 20-club, invitational, and Maritime golfing titles.

By 1948 the Royal Canadian Golf Association rated him as the fifteenth top amateur in the country. His final victory came in 1988 at Digby Pines where he won his second Maritime Seniors’ Golf Championship, fifty years after his first Nova Scotia amateur title. Eddie Crowell was inducted into the Nova Scotia Sport Hall of Fame in 1997.
