The former head pro at a Kamloops golf course will plead guilty to fraud and theft charges stemming from a scam in which he is alleged to have bilked members for cash and stolen thousands of dollars worth of equipment.
Chris Power, head pro at Rivershore Golf Links until he was fired in 2017, was charged last year with 11 counts of fraud and four counts of theft relating to allegations between October 2016 and April 2017.
The 35-year-old is alleged to have accepted cash or e-transfer payment for pro shop merchandise, then pocketed the money. He is also accused of offering non-existent membership discounts to golfers and accepting payment personally by cash or cheque.
Power was expected to appear in Kamloops provincial court on Thursday (Oct. 1) for sentencing, but that hearing has been delayed. Lawyers will return to court on Oct. 8 to set a new sentencing date.
Power worked at Rivershore for a number of years before he was fired. He is not in custody.
