Default Rubber Tee Pads - Fly 18?

I was playing at Canoe Creek in PA this weekend with my daughter and really liked the tee pads.
I had pictures, but our entire SD card somehow got erased.
I thought Fly 18 pads were single pieces of rubber on a roll.

The pads at Canoe Creek were 2 piece pads. Where they join together in the middle they connect like puzzle pieces, and all the other edges were finished with a taper. I think they were about 3-4' x 8' or so.

What are these pads?

Thanks!

Definitely not Fly 18 pads.

Sounds like a product ive seen thats made for outdoor patios, walkways, etc. The 2 piece puzzle aspect of this product is why it can be bad for disc golf tees. If the pieces ever become uneven, and they usually do, then its a trip hazard and the tees are unusable until they can be dug up and reset

Horse stall pads are another rubber option, I haven't seen any with that puzzle piece design but they might be out there.

I had thought the same thing, but these really seemed to link together well. They were not new- they were well worn, and there were no signs of them coming apart in the middle.

I also have looked at the horse stall pads. They seem to be a bit harder rubber than these mats were. I could see the stall pads becoming slippery, but these mats at Canoe Creek were more porous...seemed less likely to get slippery when wet. Although, it was about 100 degrees with no precip, so maybe they were just grippy because they were melting!

A little ways back got a hold of some Coal Conveyor Belt - it was perfect... and it is just lying around all over the place in certain places in the country. Park District thought it was "ugly" so it was gone... But it worked great.
