In the 9th century, the territory of Holice became part of the Kingdom of Hungary. In historical records the village was first mentioned in 1245. After the Austro-Hungarian army disintegrated in November 1918, Czechoslovak troops occupied the area, later acknowledged internationally by the Treaty of Trianon. Between 1938 and 1945 Holice once more became part of Miklós Horthy's Hungary through the First Vienna Award. Village Holice was created in 1940 by joining the settlements Beketfa, Kostolná Gala, Stará Gala, and Póšfa. From 1945 until the Velvet Divorce, it was part of Czechoslovakia. Since then it has been part of Slovakia.


At the 2001 Census the recorded population of the village was 1,824 while an end-2008 estimate by the Statistical Office had the villages's population as 1,889. As of 2001, 96 per cent of its population was Hungarians, while 3,73 per cent Slovakian.
