please disregard my last comment about the ex employee. We were not worthy of him. The staff, mangement and customers were all inferior beings. Just ask him he will tell you.

I appreciate all comments made. 2006 annonymous was probably an EX employee that did’nt have the personality or the skills to be in the bowling business. As far as lane conditions. Holiday Bowl was built in 1958. We bought the facility in 1988. In those 30 years there was 1 300 game. We had 12 300 games over our first 10 years. The last 300 game bowled in the 2009-2010 season was our 90th. We have done what most centers have had to do to retain league bowlers. More than half of our league bowlers have been with us for the 22 years we have been here. Fewer than 10 people go elsewhere for their pro shop needs and I have several customers from other areas. You will get a good fit and my best effort to give you the ball reaction you need. Our approaches are clean but not “conditioned” to be slicker than the manufacturer intended.

I think the owner is a very pleasant man. He will do anything to help you. He is very well mannered and knows a great deal about bowling. I’ve seen owners of bigger bowling establishments that are not near as nice. I also have no problems with the lanes. To me, they are well kept. Each bowling alley is different. Thank you.

Owner is a pleasant man. Very nice. The alley itself is a little rough, and yes, the approach are rough and probably the worst I’ve bowled on. Its a great place to take friends and relax. Not for experienced bowlers looking to concentrate and play well

Whoever thinks the owner is an idiot is and idiot in themselves. I’ve not only bowled with this man but also have golfed with him. He is a very pleasant person to be around and can hold great conversations with him.

The owner is NOT an idiot. He is actual a very nice gentleman which I met while bowling there in the AWBA city tournament in (I believe) 2003 or 2004. Approaches are not as slick as what I am use to and I was having a problem sliding and since it is illegal to use Easy Slide or powder he allowed me to use his slip on shoe cover that aids in sliding to see if I liked it so I wouldn’t have to purchase one and waste the money. Which by the way since then I’ve purchased approx. a dozen of them, I wear mine all the time and have sold several to friends and family for certain houses which are tough to slide in. Anyway, Prices where good, food was good and all the women had a wonderful weekend. He was very helpful and very friendly to all of us. We had a few women upset that there is a no smoking and no alcohol policy, but if you can’t wait a couple hours to do either of these then you have more problems then complaining about the owner.

The operator/owner is an idiot. And I hear he runs the proshop to boot, which is very scary in my opinion. It’s too bad there isn’t much else to do in this little town.
