Ballarat Crime Investigation Unit detectives are appealing for information following a ram-raid in Alfredton earlier this week.
Police were called to The Ballarat Golf Club on Sturt Street following reports a silver Subaru Forrester station wagon had smashed into the front glass doors about 1.40am on Wednesday.
It is understood two men attempted to steal a cash machine but were unsuccessful.
No one was inside the venue at the time.
The men fled the scene in the Subaru station wagon which was seen heading westbound along Sturt Street.
The vehicle was located burnt out on Binks Road in Colbrook later on Wednesday morning.
Anyone who witnessed the incident, has dashcam/CCTV footage or information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000
