I am seeking assistance in setting up a golf league schedule that will result in a reasonably equitable schedule.

Parameters:
-the season consists of 13 Tuesday nights
-we have 12 golfers in the league
-each of the three weekly teams consists of 4 golfers
-each golfer competes individually and the 4 person teams change from week to week

I would like to set the league schedule up so that each golfer will play with each of the other 11 golfers in the league either 3 or 4 times during the 13 weeks.

Last year I manully worked out a schedule but had between 3-5 times that certain players played with each other.  I would like to make this more equitable.

Any assistance that can be provided would be appreciated.  Thanks.

ozo, thank you very much.  The second solution works.  I was also able to make a couple of manual changes to the first solution and made it work.  I now have a couple of options to choose from.  Thanks again.
