In the spring of 1995, father and son, Dirk and Ronald deJong broke ground building the front 9 holes of what will be Holland Heights Golf Course. Golf course designer, Archie “Pete” Craig was hired to do the rough layout of the front 9 holes on Dirk and his wife Clara’s 230 acre dairy farm. Craig had 40 golf course designs though out the state on his resume. Dirk and Clara both immigrated from the Netherlands so it was decided to call the course Holland Heights and go with a Dutch theme.

After dealing with the setbacks of major flooding from a storm in January 1997 the front nine holes finally opened in 1999. In 2001 the deJong’s remodeled what was the old cow barn into a banquet hall. This facility gave the course the ability to handle events like weddings, graduation parties, reunions, and big tournaments for up to 250 people. The following year Dirk and Ron built what is now Holland Heights “Pub & Pro Shop.” In 2005 part of what was the old hay barn was finished into a room to house two new state-of-the-art “Full Swing” golf simulators. This simulator room is connected to the Pub & Pro Shop and gives golfers the ability to play golf year round at Holland Heights.

After opening the front 9 and while all these additions were being made, the deJong’s were also working on the construction of their back 9. Once again Holland Heights had to overcome devastating washouts from more flooding in 2013 on these 9 holes! In 2016 the back 9 which was designed by Ronald deJong finally opened.

Opening these holes now made Holland Heights an 18 hole, over 6700 yard “Championship Course.” The course has some of the most spectacular views of any course in Central NY and playing from the back tees its one of the most challenging! Holland Heights has 18 uniquely different holes, no two on this course are the same.

Late in 2018 Holland Heights totally upgraded their two “Full Swing” golf simulators with new cameras, screens, computers, software, projectors, and a total of 42 famous courses. These upgrades made their already good simulators the best in the area so golfers can continue enjoying golf at Holland Heights year round!

The building of Holland Heights Golf Course has been an enormous undertaking especially when you consider all the work was done by a farmer and his son using old worn out equipment. Dirk fixed equipment while his son Ron moved the dirt. Its amazing what this father and son team accomplished in less than 25 years overcoming so many setbacks you could write a book about it!
