The Golf Pro Shop in South West Rocks has been broken into during the early hours of this morning and a number of items have been stolen.
Just before 3am an unknown number of perpetrators forced their way into the building and fled with the stolen goods.
Business owner Shaun Piper said the value of goods stolen is well into the thousands of dollars.
"There were a number of golf balls stolen, hats, gps units and rangefinders which measure the distance of golf balls on the course," he said.
"Some of the items stolen are expensive and we're estimating that around $3500 to $4000 worth of stock was taken."
The thieves forced their way through a heavy glass sliding door as well as a Crimsafe triple-locked door.
"They obviously knew what they were looking for, because the force that's needed to open these locked doors is immense," Mr Piper said.
"Police and security turned up early this morning when I did. They're investigating it, but there's no CCTV so if anyone in the community sees any of the items listed online at cheap prices they should contact the police."
Shaun and his wife Natalie have been business owners of the Golf Pro Shop for six years and said they've never experienced an incident like this.
"We've had people breaking into the golf sheds before, but nothing like this," Mr Piper said.
There was no other damage to the property during the incident.
"This is a warning to other businesses in the area to be more aware as well. I really can't encourage them enough to look at their security measures. We'll definitely be looking at improving ours after this."
Police are currently investigating the incident and anyone who might have seen anything or has any information is urged to contact Kempsey Police on 6561-6199 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333-000.
