16 golfers 2009-03-18
From Bill:
We have 16 golfers. We golf for 5 days, in foursomes. It should work out that each player plays with each other player 1 time exactly.
I just can't figure it out.

Thank you in advance!

16 golfers for 18 weeks 2015-03-22
From Rose:
We could use a schedule to include the following:
16 golfers
4 foursomes
Each person plays once a week for 18 weeks.
No one plays in same foursome more than 1 or 2 times, or the least amount of time.

Thank you for your kindness.

More on the scheduling of 16 golfers in 4 rounds 2013-08-26
From Peter:
I see your formula for 16 players 4 rounds.
Is it possible to get the players into different groups each day.
E.G Player 1 in group 1 the first day,
Group 2 the second day,
Group 3 the third day,
Group 4 the fourth day.
Then so on through the players.

Golf for 16 in 7 rounds 2012-08-16
From Elizabeth:
Hello, I am trying to sort out golfing for 16 guys for 7 rounds. However the twist is that the teams are broken down into 8 old boys vs. 8 young boys. Ideally, each of the players would only play each other once within their own team and then twice within all of the matches. Is that possible? Thanks for your help, my brain is hurting!

16 golfers 2009-01-11
From Bill:
I have read many of your answers to similar questions but still need your assistance. We have 16 golfers that will be playing in 4 groups of 4 each day on an upcoming golf vacation. Can you suggest the best way to scheudle the individuals assigned to each daily foursome so that we have the most diversity in foursomes throughout the vacation. I am trying to have evryone play with as many members of the group over the week with the least amount of repetition. If you would please provide it for both 6 and 7 days, since we are not sure yet how many days we will be playing.
16 golfers-playing in groups of 4 each day-6 days
16 golfers-playing in groups of 4 each day-7 days

A golf outing for 16 golfers 2005-08-05
From Bob:
I have a golf outing fast approaching and Iím having a problem matching the golfers so that everyone plays a round of golf with every other golfer in the group.

My problem is this: I have 16 golfers playing 5 rounds of golf. I would like a different foursome for every round of golf, that is each round (5 total) an individual is playing with 3 other players he hasnít played with as of yet. Can you crunch the numbers and get back to me?

The way I see it, we have 20 combinations (5 rounds x 4 golfers) with numbers 1 thru 16.
