PROVO, Utah (AP) -- A golf pro in Nephi is being accused of pocketing greens fees.

John Fillmore, the pro at Nephi's municipal golf course is charged with 20 counts of misuse of public money. During a preliminary hearing yesterday, 4th District Judge Donald Eyre ruled that there was enough evidence for him to be bound over for trial.

Prosecutors say Fillmore issued season passes to golfers but didn't turn the money over to the city in 2005 and 2006. An accountant hired by the city found players listed on daily records as playing on season passes, but there were no records of payments for those passes. Season passes cost as much as $420.

Fillmore worked for almost 20 years at Canyon Hills Park Golf Course.
