I just read the article and it was interesting to see that Horseshoe Bay Resort in Horseshoe Bay, Texas (Northwest of Austin) was not mentioned. They have 6 red clay courts and their clay is imported according to the tennis pros there. Because they have 3 adult tournaments a year there, I get to play on the red stuff on a regular basis. They did say the courts are very hard to maintain but what makes it easier is that they keep them hydrated using an underground irrigation systen. With the courts being hydrated all the time, sliding isn't as smooth as a dry court...
