Very true about the Har Trus. Most of them are very thin coatings and dry. They don't play anything like red clay.
I played a tournament there (Coral Springs)... They took all of them out...

I think there are some at Crandon Park.

I was in the middle of nowhere in NH, near Mt. Washington, and there was one REAL red clay court on the side of the road. It was perfectly manicured, the month was September... And I was wearing a suit... BUT, I had all of my stuff in the trunk, and absolutely nobody to hit with .... I was too stupid to not mark on a GPS where I was... I've searched on Google Earth for hours every once in a while... Still haven't found it.
