Welcome to the overlook

The Overlook has a long, rich history in the Lake Houston area. Originally opened in 1956 as the Atascocita Country Club in Humble, Texas, it was the the oldest club in the area and boasts some of the richest collegiate golf history found anywhere in the country. The list of golfers who went on to become professionals after playing here is impressive to say the least.

Going back to the beginning, the original club was built on the banks of Lake Houston by a syndicate including the families of landowners W.M. Wheless and J.S. Abercrombie. Wheless acted as club president until his death in 1971.

The development was cut out of some pretty thick country, flush with deer, snakes, critters, and plenty of wild hogs. Farm to Market road 1960 had just been paved the year prior, and the “low water crossing” had just been replaced by the McKay Bridge over Lake Houston. The club extended across both sides of FM 1960.
