According to City-data, the Village of Golf's population consisted of 444 whites, 4 Asians and 3 Hispanics, making it Chicago's least populous and least diverse north suburb.

The Encyclopedia of Chicago quotes a longtime resident describing the half-mile square village as "a small town somewhere in the middle of Kansas."

One thing that sets Golf far apart from small-town Kansas is its housing prices. At the moment, five homes are listed for sale in the MLS at prices ranging from $525,000 to $1,599,000.

The 4-bedroom, 4 ½ bath home pictured above is priced at $1,185,000. It's a few steps from Diedrich Park and less than two blocks from the Golf Metra station.
