Apart from his prowess in golf architecture, Crafter has been a stalwart of the game winning both junior and senior events at State and National level during the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s.

Both his father, Brian, and uncle, Murray, were professional golfers, and his sister Jane, turned professional in 1980.
