8 golfers playing 5 round 2015-06-11
From Simon:
We have 8 golfers playing 5 rounds, and want to make the pairings as even as possible (ie all play against everyone else)

2 of the players however must play together each day - due to a buggy being required.

If anyone has a formula to work this out I'd be appreciated

Twelve golfers 2009-06-26
From Fred:
Hello- There are twelve golfers in 3 foursomes for three days. Is there a combination of four man foursomes that allow for no duplicates? In other words, is there a formula to insure the greatest amount of variety in the foursomes. Looking at it math like you have 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12 grouped into four numbers each for three days. So if your have the first day 1,2,3,4 in one group, 5,6,7,8 in the second and 9,10,11,12 in the third what can you do for the next two days to have the fewest duplicates or have the greatest variety in the foursomes? Thanks

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.

A schedule for 24 golfers 2002-05-25
From John:
I am working on a schedule for 24 golfers. 6 groups of 4. I have 8 golf days (twice per week for a month).

Ideally, I would like to schedule all 24 golfers in 6 different groups of 4 on each day. Here is the catch.....no golfer in any group can be grouped togther more than once. Every group of 4 each day will have 4 new golfers that have never played together before. Is this possible?
