I am trying to set up pairings for 4 rounds of golf with only 10 golfers (2 foursomes and 1 twosome) and trying to minimize duplications. Any formulas or help?

4 digit lock 2007-05-16
From Kathy:
Hi, My name is Kathy and I'm a REALTOR, I have 2 different lockboxes that I cannot remember the combinations for, so what I need is all the different combinations for 4 digits that cannot be the same, i.e. 0123. Can you help me out? I would hate to throw them away as they cost about $30 each. Thank you, Kathy
