These workers are often telecommuters who work in knowledge-based, white-collar professions. For example, Silicon Valley has large numbers of people who telecommute. Other at-home workers may be self-employed people who operate small businesses out of their homes.


Setting & Lifestyle

In addition, Golf is home to many people who could be described as "urban sophisticates". Urban sophisticates are people who are both educated and wealthy, and thus tend to be older, richer, and more established than young professionals. "Urban sophisticates" is not just about being educated and well-off financially: it is a point of view and state of mind, one that you might call 'urbaneness'. But such people can and do regularly live in small towns, suburbs and rural areas, as well as in big cities. They read, support the arts and high-end shops, and love travel.

Because of many things, Golf is a great place for families with children to consider.

The village’s good public school district and large population of college-educated adults provide an environment conducive to academic values. With regard to real estate, Golf has a high rate of owner-occupied single family homes, which tends to reflect stability in the local community. Finally, Golf’s overall crime rate ranks among the lowest in the country, making it one of the safest places to raise a family.

In Golf, however, the average commute to work is quite long. On average, people spend 31.73 minutes each day getting to work, which is significantly higher than the national average. One bright side is that local public transit is widely used, so it may be an option to avoid the headache of driving in the heavy traffic by leaving the car at home and taking transit.

Despite being a small village, Golf has a lot of people using the train to get to and from work every day. Most of these people on the train are using it to get to good jobs in other cities.
