According to local legend, a Goron traveler fell off Tabantha Great Bridge and into Tanagar Canyon. While the legend assumes that the Goron died from the fall and became the Boom-Bam Ghost of Tabantha Great Bridge, in reality the Goron survived the fall thanks to his miner's hard hat and him rolling down into the canyon after. The Goron Modar found himself in the canyon below the bridge and set up camp there. Modar came up with a game he calls Boom Bam Golf and creates a golf course he dubs the Tanager Canyon Course. The "Boom Bam" sound produced by Boom Bam Golf are attributed to the Boom-Bam Ghost by locals at Tabantha Bridge Stable.
When Link discovers the course, Modar offers to let Link play for free. The objective is for Link to hit the ball into the hole with as few strokes as possible. A stroke is counted every time the ball moves. The Stasis Rune allows Link to freeze the giant golf ball in stasis to store kinetic energy to move the ball to the hole. Although Link can use any weapon, Iron Sledgehammers launch the ball the furthest. If the ball falls off the course, it is returned to its previous position on the course. Modar rewards Link with a prize based upon his number of strokes. If Link scores with three strokes he receives a Silver Rupee.
