Located near Afton on Grand Lake O’ the Cherokees in northeastern Oklahoma, Shangri-La is a destination resort featuring 27 all-new holes of championship golf, along with a driving range and short-game practice facilities, stay and play packages, and a 13,000 square foot club house that offers fine dining, casual relaxation and a state-of-the-art fitness center.

Since the purchase and complete restoration of the Shangri-La facilities by Eddy Gibbs in 2010, Shangri-La Golf Club has become America’s fastest golf club.

Shangri-La’s 200-slip marina offers gasoline and diesel fuel, pump-out facilities, a fully stocked ship store offering apparel, souvenir items and boating accessories, and a comprehensive service department, as well as seasonal al fresco dining and drinking at Island Joe’s Kentena. Enjoyment of the waters of Grand Lake is not limited just to boat owners at Shangri-La. Sail Grand Waterfront at Shangri-La Marina also offers boat and personal watercraft rentals, yacht charters and Oklahoma’s only parasailing experience.

Lodging options include studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom condominiums. Luxury waterfront lodging accommodates larger groups and penthouse facilities that include a private rooftop pool and spectacular views of Grand Lake.

Stay and play packages range from $165 to $372 per person per night.
