“Must See New Shangri-La Resort on Monkey Island”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

Shangri-La Resort on Monkey Island has undergone a magnificent renovation over the last few years! It has a beautiful golf course (sure to thrill any avid golfer) and offers a wonderful dining experience. We love the wine dinners! We have also hosted a private event for around 100 people at The Summit and the staff was very helpful to make our night an excellent success. Monkey Island is a great to place to come and play on the lake, enjoy 5 start golfing, and great food!

“Engagement Party dinner”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

We had a family dinner in the lodge, and even though we were not members of the club, we were welcomed to a large room upstairs with lovely views of the lake. Staff at the resort were extremely helpful in both the planning stages and the night of the event. The food and service that night were excellent, and the facility is lovely.

“Fabulous Golf - Fabulous Food”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

The rebuilding of this legendary resort is above and beyond expectations. The Championship course (all-new construction) with water features, beautiful white bunkers and lakeside proximity make it an outstanding golfing experience. No wonder they chose this location for the South Central Sectional PGA Championship!
Food at the Summit Restaurant is the best in a 100 mile radius -- easily!

“Excellent Restaurant, The Rooms Are GONE”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

There are no longer any hotel rooms within the Shangri-La complex. Ownership of the Shangri-La Golf Club changed hands a few years ago, and the old hotel facility was torn down. A beautiful new clubhouse and restaurant was completed last year. But the hotel rooms are gone; just a championship gold course and great restaurant. The Worldmark timeshare facility is nearby.

“Awesome Food. Very good staff. Attention to Detail.”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

We had a meeting with about 80 persons and we used Shangri-La as our meeting place and event caterer. Food was superb. Not just superb by Oklahoma or "lake" standards, but superb on a par with any destination resort. The Buffalo Bar is, well, just cool and very fun. Summit Restaurant is worth doing...and worth repeating just to try their multiple great dishes. Outdoors eating and bar areas gave great views of miles of lake. Our hospitality team seemingly could pull off just about anything. (How a about a boat tour of the lake for 50 people and a few coolers full of fresh margarita's and beer...with two hours notice? Yes they did that for us.) Of course, prices are also on par with destination resorts. If you have put on events, you know what I'm talking about. But you can manage that issue because staff is flexible in the BYO area and/or self-bartended thing outside the main facility. Ask. Also try their affiliates...we used Woodycrest Lodge. Wow. Imagine your own private Vail Ski lodge, but with a lake view...and lake access. Memorable meeting. Clean as a whistle. Great staff. Nice Marina for anything less than 60 foot vessel.
