We have dramatically improved the randomization of tee times for TeeTimeHelper. In the past the algorithm simply filled the tee times to the maximum number allowed in each group with the partial groups at the end. This resulted in smaller groups scheduled to go out after the full groups which probably results in slower play.
We have now made it so the smaller groups go out first. Also, if the number of golfers evenly divides into the number of tee times we use that so the groups move around hopefully at the same pace. For example, if you have 6 players and 2 tee times we will group them as 3 and 3 instead of 2 and 4.
Also, before submitting we will tell you how many people will be in each group so when you do randomize your golf event there will be no surprises .. except for who is playing together!
