No, it isn't. According to wikipedia, A robot is holonomic if the controllable degrees of freedom are equal to the total degrees of freedom. As a ground robot, the degrees of freedom are 3, the x axis, y axis, and rotation about the origin. But the controllable degrees of freedom are only 2, the linear and angular velocities.
