The Club

The original Lakeway Newcomers Club, first established in 1966, offered residents of the Lakeway community, (City of Lakeway, its Extra-Territorial Jurisdiction (ETJ), and the Village of Hills), an opportunity to meet, socialize, and have fun.  That tradition continues on today with a wide range of socializing opportunities for Members.


On June 3, 1964, the Lakeway Yacht and Country Club (LYCC) was formed to provide social activities and facilities for the members.  In the late 1970’s and early 1980’s Lakeway’s population underwent a growth spurt.  As our community grew, so did the task of informing new residents of available social and volunteer opportunities and acquainting them with the area’s resources. Stepping up to the task, LYCC sponsored a semi- annual “Newcomer Reception.”

Lakeway had grown from a small village where everyone knew your name, to a city of over 7500 residents in 1996.  It was decided LYCC  form a club to welcome new residents.  Sponsored by LYCC, the Newcomers Club was formed in October 1966; Interest in Newcomers was immediate and enthusiastic.  Newcomers Club had become a reality and continues to grow. Newcomers (and now Neighbors) continue to be a part of Lakeway.
