True. I lived in CA for 10 years and don't think I ever saw a Har-Tru court. Here in the east they seem to be everywhere. In fact, the nice courts I talk about above are not even at a high-end country club, but a regular suburban swim and racket club. I can think of at least 10 others that I have been to within a 30 minute drive. The kicker is, tennis is really an afterthought at our club (swim team is huge), so these courts feel like "private" courts because they are always available.
