HISTORY OF APPLE VALLEY
There are seven apple trees which have stood on Gleneagles soil since before the golf course’s establishment in 1927. Planted by Peter Larsen, the original founder and proprietor of the course, these apple trees still bear fruit to this day.
In 2011, specimens from these trees were presented at UBC’s Fall Apple Festival, where they were appraised by apple experts.
The specimens, as it happened, were a remarkable find. One of the trees was a Pewaukee apple tree—a strain dating back as far as 1800, and thought to be extinct.
The Pewaukee apple is noted for its winter hardiness; it has smooth, thin, greenish-yellow skin, mottled with orange-red and striped with carmine. Its whitish flesh is firm, coarse and very juicy—making it prized for baking.
Though the original Pewaukee tree is old and nearing the end of its life,through diligent replanting efforts there are now over
twelve Pewaukee apple trees on the Gleneagles golf course. It is in honor of the Pewaukee apple that the Appleback Grill is named: a unique and exceptional flavor, thought to be lost, but rediscovered.
