Formerly the Hope Open

Friday, May 21 - 2:00pm @ Bas Ridge in Hinsdale, MA

A fundraiser to support future BICS students

COVID-19 Updates:

From the BICS Open Committee:

We thank you for your interest in supporting the BICS Open. Due to the ongoing restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic, the committee will once again be hosting a slightly modified tournament that excludes the typical concluding meal/program/silent auction. Our price will once again be adjusted accordingly and will be $80 per golfer. We do still plan on selling mulligans and other add-ons during registration.

Please do not wait to register as we are getting close to when we have to nail down numbers with the golf course and would hate to inconvenience the course management if we have a large influx of teams sign up if there is a major change in COVID-19 circumstances. If you have any further questions please feel free to contact me (Andrew Matos) directly at

1:00 pm - Registration | 2:00 pm - Shotgun Start

About Our Cause

All proceeds from this golf tournament will benefit students and provide scholarships at the Berkshire Institute for Christian Studies (BICS). BICS is a one-year college-level program for young adults located in Lenox, MA. For more than three decades, BICS has served over 400 students – seeking to equip them with a biblical worldview. 

Because our students cannot receive federal financial aid, they rely heavily on assistance through our DiscipleBuilder Scholarship Fund. The proceeds of this tournament will help to provide much-needed financial assistance to our students. 

If you have any questions about our program, please do not hesitate to contact us via email or phone (413-637-4673). 

You can make a donation or a payment using the link below. Or, checks can be made out to “BICS” and mailed to PO Box 1888 Lenox, MA 01240.
