Without knowing what the hole digging animal is, I don't know what to recommend. Could be a raccoon looking for grubs or maybe a squirrel looking for bulbs? Sorry I can't suggest a control. If you have dead spots in your lawn, rake them out and overseed with Kentucky Bluegrass or a grass seed mixture - you'll find lots of options at the garden center. Overseed first then wait 2-3 weeks for the new grass to become established before fertilizing. You'll need to measure the length and the width of your lawn then multiply length times width to come up with square feet. Good luck with your landscape!
