Jerrod Neighbors

Assistant Golf Professional

A native of Pryor, Oklahoma, Jerrod played golf on his high school team before attending college at Northeastern Oklahoma State University in Tahlequah.

For fifteen years, he owned and operated a screen-printing company in Pryor. He still does a little screen printing and embroidery work on the side, but he no longer has the store in Pryor.

“I wanted to do something else, and I have always loved golf; so, I decided that’s the direction I wanted to go,” he says. Jerrod has spent the last three years finishing the PGA program to become a Class A PGA Member.

“I’m very happy here,” he says. “I love the members, the staff – our entire team. I’m thrilled to be here and be a cog in the Shangri-La wheel.”

John Lewis

Director of Player Services

With more than a dozen years under his belt at Shangri-La, John Lewis is armed with a wealth of comparative Shangri-La club knowledge, past, present and future. It is knowledge accumulated over more than a decade since he moved here from Texas. We have all heard of people from west Texas, but that’s where John is really from – the actual town of West. West, Texas. From there, he moved to the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex where he spent two decades – ten years with Texas Instruments and another ten in the roofing business. His love of golf began when his dad put his first club in his hand at the age of 12, but his passion developed while playing with colleagues during his tenure at Texas Instruments.

For John, golf is both his passion and his work. It’s not likely you will hit the course at Shangri-La without John first making certain you have everything you need. He’s never far from the course. In fact, he lives on the course at Vista Towers and his normal commute-to-work vehicle is his golf cart. John is the father of three. His daughter Kasey recently married and lives in St. Paul, Minnesota. A second daughter, Allie, is a pre-med major at the University of Florida, and his son, Collin, is a sophomore at Quapaw High School. He loves ATV four-wheeling, shooting, and taking on all comers at Tiger Woods Xbox. But first of all – it’s golf.
