Golf schedule

  1. Oct 30, 2005 #1
    Can anyone design a golf schedule for 8 golfers, playing 30 rounds, with each golfer paired with every other golfer the same number of times, and playing against every other golfer the same number of times? Each team of 2 will play another team of 2 each time. If 30 doesn't compute, what number of games will fit the criteria?

    ?? Yes, combinations are obviously involved. But why is it under differential equations? I'm going to move it to general mathematics.

    Gloffer, if a hint is all you want, go over how to calculate permutations and combinations.

    looks like he made a user name (gloffer=golfer) for someone here to figure out his dilemma.
