Shangri La Country Club on Monkey Island Is Coming Right Along

It is the first week of June, 2011 and the Shangri La Country Club did not meet it’s goal of being fully open by Memorial Day weekend that they set last year when construction started. They had no way of knowing we would have 2′ of snow in February and rain for days on end in the Spring. They are doing one supurb job of rebuilding the golf courses and the Club House does not lack too much. Work today on the driveway of the Club House was in full swing with concrete being poured. They hope to be fully completed by July 4th holiday.

The golf course rebuilding crew have had at least a dozen machines on site for over a year now in the quest to completely rebuild this golf course into one of the best in the country. The white sand contrasting the green grass is a beautiful site. Eddie Gibbs, owner of the Shangri La Country Club and also a huge fence building company has of course used his company to build new steel fencing around the course. Eddie and crew are doing  just a first class job of rebuilding this Club. Eddie recently bought the Shangri La Marina and announced plans for upgrading and expanding it also.

All of this buzz of activity on Monkey Island at Grand Lake has not gone unnoticed with second home buyers on Monkey Island either. Homes are selling. We closed a Newport Village home last Friday and this Friday we are closing a Brighton Bay home, both nice gated communities. We have another home on the island waiting the closing process also.

The Chateaus and The Estates ajoining the Country Club have had active sales. We still have nice homes on Monkey Island available for sale thru RE/MAX Grand Lake listings and the Grand Lake MLS, both of which we sell from. Our team would appreciate the opportunity to show you homes in the Grand Lake area and Monkey Island. You too can enjoy a second home on the lake. Homes are priced from $50,000 to around $2,000,000 with a nice home for everyone’s taste and budget.
