Spotlight: 1757 Golf Academy

1757 Academy

Did you know northern Virginia’s premier public practice facility is also home to one of the nation’s top instructors?

Tiffany Faucette, Lead Instructor at the 1757 Golf Academy in Dulles, VA, was recently named a Top 50 “Growth of the Game Teaching Professional,” an honor now bestowed upon her two years running.  The LGPA Northeast Section “Teacher of the Year” has been improving the skills of Washington, DC-area golfers for more than seven years at 1757 Golf Club.


“Tiffany’s ability to translate the golf swing’s intricate movements into understandable terms is what sets her apart,” said Gary Huebner, General Manager of 1757 Golf Club.  “Her classes are filled with everyone from beginners to the more advanced, and her students are finding success on the course.”

Tiffany knows a thing or two about success.  She spent 11 years on the professional tours with appearances in the 2004 U.S. Women’s Open and the 2006 LPGA Championship.  She began teaching in 1999, earned her LPGA Class A Membership in 2008 and became Lead Instructor at 1757 in 2010.  She’s conducted more than 1,800 individual and group lessons annually, and shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon. 

“A good teacher never stops learning,” said Faucette.  “Helping golfers play better and, as a result, find greater enjoyment is my passion.”
