Police are investigating an aggravated robbery at the Huapai Golf Club north of Auckland last night.
Three men, two armed with firearms, entered the premises just after 9pm as the manager was locking up.
Acting Detective Sergeant Jackson Shewry from Rodney Police said the offenders threatened the manager and took his wallet.
They also took a sum of money, cash boxes and the golf club tip jar.
The employee was then tied up and had his face covered.
Shewry said the offenders had their faces covered with bandanas and wore black hooded sweatshirts.
Police have today carried out a scene examination at the property and a number of inquiries are underway.
