Conine All-Star Golf Classic
Hosted by Jeff and Cindy Conine since 1994, the Conine All-Star Golf Classic is one of the premier golf events in South Florida. The Conine Golf Classic is known for its incredible food, beverages, golfing goodies, in-person personal shopping experience for each golfer and hole prizes that can’t be topped.
