NEW ORLEANS – A Metairie man is suing a New Orleans golf course for injuries he claims to have received on its premises.

Randall Guilmo filed suit against Lakewood Golf, LLC and Lakewood Golf Club in the Orleans Parish Central District Court on July 23.

Guilmo claims he was a patron at the Lakewood Golf Course located at Lakewood Golf Club located at 4801 General Degaulle Dr. in New Orleans when he fell into an uncovered drainage hole. The plaintiff alleges he sustained injuries to his entire body that necessitated medical treatment.

The defendant is accused of failing to maintain its premises and failing to warn guests of hazards on the property.

An unspecified amount in damages is sought for pain and suffering, medical expenses, loss of wages and disability.

Guilmo is represented by Brian G. Shearman of New Orleans-based Shearman-Denenea, LLC.

The case has been assigned to Division G Judge Robin M. Giarrusso.

Case no. 2012-07138.
