Question from Lennart:

How can I organise 13 players playing in groupings of 4,3,3,3 for 3 rounds of golf in a way that all play with all others but a minimum of times with the same players(?)If possible, nobody should play in the 4 ball more than once. I would be grateful for an answer/proposal! Thank you, LR


Unfortunately my software won’t balance out the number of times in the foursome. The good news is that I think you can get what you want from Claude’s answer to Bill

Delete Day 1, and players e, f, and g from the schedule wherever they occur. Use any three of Days 2, 3, 4 and 5.
