Question from Russ:

we have 20 golfers over 5 days, with 4 people per foursome which makes 5 groups each day. I would like to each person to play with everyone at least once if possible. Do you have a formula for this?


Not all pairs can play together over 5 days. There is a good schedule in the archive, where no 2 players are together more than once It is the best you can do.
