It's really not easy but, while I am fairly satisfied with what I've now got, golf greens & fairways, baseball diamonds and football (soccer) pitches tend towards being over-saturated greens. What is the answer other than going the calibration route which, I suspect is not going to correct this issue without tinkering with deeper adjustments. We'll see. T.
Just a few words to try and help. Thomas, if you haven't already tried it, use of the free AVS HD709 Blu-ray media may help in making better settings to your TVs including better saturation or color brightness options. The two are related, yet different technically in what they accomplish for better color balance.
Also, if you are familiar with the isf
Expert1 or Expert2 menus in the LG, in particular, you can try the AVS HD709 Blu-ray disc to make the best Contrast (White level), Brightness (Black level), Back light, etc to first get the best gray scale you can. Then, using the same AVS HD709 media, primary color adjusts can be made and and also secondary Yellow, Cyan and Magenta.
In the meantime, if you want to try, you can go into the Color Management area of the LG Advanced Control menu (with isf Expert selected) and try lowering the Green Color in the -5 to -10 range and also the Green Tint in the same range and see if it helps reduce any "neon" greens for gold. This is assuming main color in the basic settings is at no more than "50". This value, "50" in the basic video menu should be the starting point for all adjusts and not need to be changed if all other settings are properly made using the fore mentioned AVS HD709 media.

Lasatly, here is a link for a plethora of information on setting gray scale and why it is the required first step in getting proper color as you probably already know.
