Dunwoodie lies at the top of "Dunwoodie Heights" in the center of the city of Yonkers. It is characterized by dramatic topography and steep slopes. Its layout is a mix of narrow fairways to rolling wide landscapes. The design of the course takes advantage of the natural topography, resulting in a challenging game. The course's 1st and 15th tees have recently been expanded, and lobby and ticket window areas have recently been renovated.
Dunwoodie also has practice greens, a driving range that is lighted for night play, and a multi-purpose catering facility in the clubhouse.
