Located in the Southtowns of WNY between Holland and Colden, Holland Hills Country Club is less than a half hour from Buffalo. The golf course sits atop the highest point in Erie County. From its lofty perch, the elevated tees offer views that stretch across acres of rolling countryside. The championship layout features a variety of challenges including tree-lined fairways, water hazards, and strategically placed sand traps. There are also a few sharp doglegs to watch out for. It's the many elevation changes though, which can range from subtle to dramatic, that are the true test of this golf course. Be prepared for several tricky uphill, downhill, and sidehill lies. From the tips, Holland Hills Country Club is quite formidable but multiple sets of tees make it more player friendly for all skill levels.

I’ve played at this course a few times. Usually it is mowed and cared for really well, but for some reason it wasn’t mowed as well as it could’ve been. Still had a great round. Also, the cart paths could be re-done.

With the exception of the rough being kept a little too long, the course is in good condition. The staff is friendly and provides excellent service. We had a flat on our gold cart and we were brought out a replacement within 5 minutes. Recommend this course.

This is a spectacular layout! Generous fairways with hidden dangers and just a setting used to its fullest. The greens were painfully slow and the fairways were weedy and did look much different than the rough, just shorter.

I would play it again regardless.

Just one thing. They were mowing, a little later in the day than I would expect, No problem. But, i am used to a staff that is courteous to its players. When a guest is in their view preparing, many will shut down the mower and allow the patron the moment to play. On several occasions, at least 2 different attendants ignored my group and others. This was annoying.

The potential of this track is amazing. I will return when spring is more sprung.

This is really not a good review because the condition of the course was underwater the drainage is very poor so don't go there after a deluge. It was cart path only, so we did not enjoy that from the getgo, your ball was in nothing but puddles our feet were soaked after a few holes. The layout is challenging with a narrow creek running thru the whole place. It rained 2 days prior but the place was still soaked.had we known it was cart path only NO we would not have gone.

The people that worked there were very helpful & polite. ......explaining about all the rain they got. We may go back to try it again when there is a drought

Rated "course conditions" as Fair but we have had record amounts of rain. Leaving the saturated soil out of the control of the owners. Plan to play again when things dry up and cart path only isn't necessary.

I've played this course roughly a dozen times in last three years. I like the course because the holes and greens vary. The price for 18 w/cart beats most other area public courses. However, this time it looked as though a cut was missed on the rough. This made it hard to find your ball and hit out. Some greens were also dried out which was odd since it has rained frequently early in the season. Perhaps this is why the rate has dropped from $25-20 for 18 w/cart. I do enjoy the laid back atmosphere of the course. It's rarely if never bumper to bumper golf.

Staff isn't the friendliest. No greeting upon arriving to the club house, to grounds crew starting to mow around the greens while you approach. Usually start golfing around 7 am, with being one of only 4 groups out, staff has no care or concern about mowing whether teeing off or following you down the fairway.

Course is pretty much wide open, only 2 par 5's, and very dry. Water was supposed to be on many holes, but creek and ponds dried up. Overall it was a friendly place but not too challenging.

Set in the hills south of Buffalo, there are nice scenic surroundings. The course is in pretty decent condition, however, the greens were a bit fuzzy & needed cutting. This caused the speed & roll to be slow; sometimes bumpy. Additionally it seemed that many of the holes had not been moved in some number of days as indicated by the growth around the holes which makes them slightly smaller. Still it was an enjoyable round.

We had a foursome, course was in good shape. We played alright and bought a total of 20 beers from the course through out the round for the 4 of us.

At the end of our round a large man apparently the owner began verbally assaulting me and got right in my face accusing me leaving beer cans all over his course and bringing beer that we did not purchase from him. I attempted to explain to him and show him the receipts that showed we bought them from him and apologize for leaving beer cans on a couple of the tee boxes (I know that was wrong) but he continued to rant and threaten to call the police if we did not leave. Instead of simply communicating in a rationale way where I would have apologized and the issue would have been resolved.
