Math CentralQuandaries & Queries


Question from Paul:

We have 12 golfers who will play four rounds of golf - how can we organize the foursomes so that each player has the most exposure to the other 11 players?


I think it isn't possible for every pair to meet. If you look in the archives, (search for golf 12) there is a schedule found by computer search that's not too bad.
