Investigators believe head golf course pro Chad McMahon stole at least $40,000 over two years using multiple schemes that included fraudulent checks and gift card transactions from the Omaha, Neb., club.
A former golf course pro at Tiburon Golf Club in Omaha, Neb., has been arrested and accused of conducting four different schemes to steal at least $40,000 from the club from 2010-2012, the Omaha-based WOWT 6 reported.
The investigation of golf course pro Chad McMahon, who no longer works for Tiburon, has been ongoing for about 18 months, since owner Bob Hill Jr. noticed red flags in the club’s balance sheets when changing accounting software, WOWT 6 reported.
“[We just want to] make sure everybody is aware that no golfer, no league and no outing was affected. It was taken from us,” Hill Sr. said.
According to WOWT 6, McMahon allegedly used league checks to buy gift cards he redeemed for money from Tiburon. Sarpy County sheriff’s investigator Darin Morriseey alleges that 92 fraudulent check and gift card transactions have been uncovered, WOWT 6 reported.
McMahon began working at Tiburn as a cart boy when he was 14, and Hill sent McMahon to school so he could his way up to course pro. “I’m very disappointed. He was a friend and longtime employee so it’s very disheartening,” Hill Sr. said.
McMahon is free on bond, WOWT 6 reported.
