golf league schedule

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.

Thank you for the response.   The solution presented is close to meeting the requirements.  
d & l and h & j only golf together twice.

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.
