Olympia Fields, Illinois – Golf enthusiasts and sports fans are gearing up for an exciting finale at the BMW Championship, set to take place tomorrow at the prestigious Olympia Fields Country Club. With the event sold out, it’s crucial to plan your journey ahead to make the most of the championship action. From parking tips to alternative transportation options, here’s everything you need to know to ensure a seamless experience at the BMW Championship.

General Spectator Parking

If you’re heading to the championship, make sure to secure your parking pass in advance for the Lincoln Mall, located at 255 Lincoln Mall Dr., Matteson, Illinois. A complimentary shuttle service will transport fans from this location to Olympia Fields Country Club, starting 30 minutes before gates open and continuing throughout the day. Remember, parking passes are limited, so act fast to secure your spot.

Rideshare and Metra

For those opting for rideshare services, Gate 1 at 3033 203rd St., Olympia Fields, Illinois, is the designated pick-up and drop-off point. Keep in mind that drop-offs and pick-ups near the club’s front gate or residential areas are not allowed.

Another convenient option is taking the Metra Electric Line (ME) to the Olympia Fields Station, situated right next to Gate 1 entrance. Spectators can also make use of Park and Ride Metra stations along the ME route for hassle-free transportation to the championship.

BMW Owners’ Parking

BMW owners are in for a treat with complimentary, offsite parking available on a first-come, first-served basis. This premium parking lot includes shuttle service to the course, but remember to acquire your parking pass through registration, which opens on June 28.

Alternative Transportation Options

Looking to skip the parking hustle? Utilize rideshare drop-off or the Metra Electric Line (ME) for a stress-free journey. Spectators coming from downtown Chicago can catch the ME line from the Millennium Metra Station at 151 Michigan Ave. For those who prefer parking and riding, Park and Ride Metra stations along the ME route are also available.

Essential Parking Details

For general parking, the G-Lot at Lincoln Mall is your go-to spot. However, please note that parking passes must be pre-purchased, as on-site purchases will not be available. Unfortunately, general parking for Saturday and Sunday is already sold out. BMW Owners’ Lot has also reached capacity for all days.

For those with ADA needs, designated parking spaces and shuttle services are available for convenience. Please remember to plan accordingly if you require assistance.

With so many options available, the 2023 BMW Championship ensures accessibility and convenience for all attendees. Don’t miss out on this thrilling event – plan ahead and choose the transportation method that suits you best.
