 20 of us golf together in groups of 4 2009-01-24 From D.:Every Sunday, 20 of us golf together in groups of 4. I am looking for a way that each of us play with 3 other people each week and ultimately get to play in groups that are unique. For instance if week 1, I play with 2, 3, 4 and then the next week I play with 5, 6, 7, and the 3rd week I play with 8, 9, 10 and so forth until I have played with everyone. Everbody else should be doing the same thing. Can you give me a schedule for this and how many weeks would it take for all of us to accomplish this where we all play with different combinations of people. (We should not play with the same person very often or even the same pairs of people but everyone should play with everybody else) I hope this makes sense........whew and thanks!Answered by Victoria West.
