Math CentralQuandaries & Queries


Question from Peter, a parent:

I am working on a 19 week golf schedule with 24 golfers, and I would like to know how to make up six foursomes each week without having a player paired with the same golfers.

Hi Peter,

The short answer is that you can't. Any such schedule will have duplicate pairs. Try taking a look at this article: There is a schedule there that can help you.

Best of luck,
