Former Australia Sevens international Holmes, who was born in Perth, will make the switch from the Brumbies.
The 22-year-old utility back has scored 74 points in nine appearances for the Canberra-based franchise since making his debut against the Chiefs in 2012.
However he is relishing the chance to play for the Force, having been a member of RugbyWA's academy in 2009.
"I've enjoyed how the Force has gone about their footy this year and I'm looking forward to getting back home," he said.
"I was involved with the club in junior programs and the academy since I was 15 and the goal when I was younger was always to play for the Force.
"While I've since moved over east, when the opportunity came up to move home it was very tempting and it's a decision I think's best for my development moving forward.
"The Force is in a similar situation to what I came into at the Brumbies. Over the past two years the side has grown and developed, and there's no reason why the Force can't do the same."
