I would like to find a schedule for 14 golfers (2 four somes and 2 three somes) playing 6 rounds of golf and minimizing the number of repeat pairings, if possible.

The schedule below may be of use.  Everyone does play with each other at least once and at most twice, however there may be better schedules with a more balanced distribution of threesomes and foursomes.  For example players 1 & 7 play more often in threesomes than the others, while player 10 only has one threesome.

Hope that helps.
