NORWALK, Conn. -- The Maritime Aquarium will host Norwalk’s sixth annual Maritime Golf Classic on Monday, Sept. 12.

Foursomes and individual golfers can register now for this day at Wee Burn Country Club in Darien.

Proceeds support The Maritime Aquarium’s efforts to connect cash-strapped schools that need subsidies for Aquarium programs and for busing. Even more enticing is the chance to win a 2016 BMW 228i xDrive Convertible made available by BMW of Darien and valued at $38,000.

Sink a hole-in-one on Wee Burn’s par-three seventh hole and drive home in the luxury sports-car. Two other holes have prizes during the Aquarium event: two roundtrip airlines tickets for anywhere in the continental U.S.; and a $500 Callaway gift card.

The Maritime Golf Classic includes carts, a barbecue lunch, refreshments, post-play hors d’oeuvres and dinner, a silent auction and other prizes. Registration and bag drop begins at 10:30 a.m. and lunch opens at 11 a.m., with a 12:30 p.m. shotgun start.

Opportunities range from $10,000 as naming sponsor with two foursomes and two hole sponsorships to $1,000 as an individual player or $1,000 as a hole sponsor. Chairman of the Golf Classic is Charlie Hinnant of Rowayton, a member of the Aquarium’s Board of Advisors.
