I think its much easier to pick up the game on grass. The whole game just feels easier. Just my opinion. Ive been playing for a year and things just seem to be more natural on grass.
Im in Perth, Western Australia.
An average club will normally have a ratio of about 3 grass courts to every 2 hard/artificial Id say. Might be more 50:50 these days actually. My own club for example had 18 grass courts and took out 6 and replaced them with hardcourts and lights.
I dont get why grass courts are never installed with lights...
I am surprised that western australia has so many grass courts. Lucky you! I agree with you that grass tennis just feels very natural and it is the way tennis was originally intended to be.
