Don’t Putt Around in Traffic. Take Metra to the BMW Championship at Conway Farms Golf Club September 12 - 17.

Going to the BMW Championship at Conway Farms Golf Club can be quick and easy with convenient train service on Metra’s Milwaukee District North and Union Pacific North line trains to and from both Metra Lake Forest stations. Plus, extra weekend service has been added and is highlighted in the schedules linked above.

A secondary golf course entrance off the ninth tee makes Metra’s Milwaukee North line trains only a couple minute bus shuttle ride from the station. The entrance will also provide faster access for those connecting from Union Pacific North line trains from the downtown Lake Forest station too. Free daily shuttles to and from both Lake Forest Metra stations will serve outbound and inbound trains during the practice rounds and tournament, making Metra the quick and easy way to enjoy the Championship.

On weekdays, limited daily parking is available at stations, although the stations listed below will have parking throughout the day:

Milwaukee District North

Union Pacific North

Glen/N. Glenview 


Lake Cook Road 


Prairie Crossing 

Fort Sheridan 


Great Lakes 

Round Lake 


Fox Lake 

Winthrop Harbor 

Due to Conway Farms’ proximity to Metra’s Milwaukee North line Lake Forest station, if you are coming from downtown, board at Chicago’s Union Station. The Milwaukee North line is also the recommended line to use if you want to drive and “park & ride” from a station  most convenient for you. If you are coming from the north part of the city, Union Pacific North line trains serving the Clybourn, Ravenswood and Evanston stations provide convenient options to take you to the downtown Lake Forest station where a connecting shuttle will be awaiting your arrival. North Shore communities along the line allow easy “park & ride” access from their stations too.

Take advantage of Metra’s $8 Weekend Pass which is good for both Saturday & Sunday and can be purchased on the train.  Additionally,  all ticket types are available where a ticket agent is on duty, or can be purchased via the Ventra App that  can be downloaded at the App Store or Google Play. 

So why putt around in traffic when Metra’s Lake Forest Stations are just a chip shot away?
