Golf, Florida has one of the highest incomes in America with a per-capita income hovering around $145,000. An island with the name of Golf island might make you think the name came from the 1950’s planned community surrounding a golf course. Rumor has it that the name actually came from the number of early settlers who were from Golf, Illinois. However, now, the population of 260 people could just as well cite the small 542-acre area as a golf haven. Golf is situated near Boynton Beach, and the County Club of Florida. It is one of several villages in Palm Springs County, known for a golfing lifestyle, and retirement. As opposed to other notable communities on this list, such as Fisher Island and Jupiter Island, the residents of Golf keep a quiet sophistication on their lavish lifestyle. This is another community for the ultra-wealthy, with posh instead of swag, and old money rivaling the nouveau riche.
