Right now they just have hardcourts and 1 Aussie Open Plexicushion court. I don't expect the remodel and new courts to be finished in 2013. I was told it was and 18 month plan. Ellison has a house nearby that has from what I hear a perfect red clay court.
I ran into a pro from MRC at a USPTA function last year and when I asked what was going on with the promised grass court he just laughed and said it is never going to happen no matter what the club claims. This has evidently been a longstanding black hole.
