The Metra Electric District, previously known as the Illinois Central Gulf Raildroad, runs alongside Olympia Fields Country Club in this photo taken from a club water tower just before the 2003 U.S. Open. While no spectators were allowed at this weekend’s BMW Championship event, the train line and area golf courses still have a historic link. (TODD PANAGOPOULOS / CHICAGO TRIBUNE)
