The hotel offers beautiful rooms with BOSE Wave Radios, In-room movies, Oversize Granite Showers with Dual Showerheads, Large Indoor Pool, Jacuzzi, Fireside Lobby Bar, Room Service, Business Center and Fitness Room.

Complimentary parking and Wi-Fi are available at both hotels.
PRIVATE HOUSING: As another housing option, players and their parents may request private housing for the event. Typical requests may be for those juniors traveling without parents to the event. Please contact Tournament Director Sean Riley at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need or are seeking more information on private housing. This option is first come, first serve, and is not guaranteed, so please contact the Tournament Director as soon as possible.
In order to fully process your request for private housing, you will be sent information via email to complete. The AJGA will be facilitating background checks of all possible housing options as a way to ensure a safe and welcoming atmosphere during the event. These checks come with a $50 non-refundable, administrative fee. Upon your request for private housing, the AJGA will bear the expense of the check up-front, and thus, the fee is non-refundable as the process cannot be reversed or withdrawn.
AIRPORT/GROUND TRANSPORTATION: Players may fly into General Mitchell International (MKE) which is located 40 minutes from The Legend at Bristlecone.
National Car Rental, the Official Car Rental of the PGA TOUR and now the American Junior Golf Association, provides AJGA members and their families with discounted fixed rates on all car categories.

An individual absent from this event because they are not staying at the host hotel, are staying in private housing for the week, or have a long commute does not constitute acceptable circumstances.

NO SHOW POLICY: Because the AJGA continues to receive far more applications than it has spots available for in its events, the AJGA is adopting the following policy:
If you find that you cannot compete in the McArthur Towel & Sports Future Legend, you must withdraw from the event by contacting the AJGA at (770) 868-4200 or the tournament headquarters at (678) 617-2420 prior to Players Registration. This allows the AJGA to replace you with an alternate. If you cannot compete and do not withdraw properly, you are considered a “no show,” and the following action will be taken:
1. If you have already been accepted for another event, you will be notified of your disqualification from that event.
2. If you have not been accepted in another event at this time, your next application will not be considered.
3. If this offense is repeated, you will not be allowed to play in any more events for the remainder of the year.
