Features and Overview
Horseshoe Island is unique in that it contains a miniature golf course. In order to clear the course, Link must both throw and blow the nuts with the help of the Deku Leaf into the holes near the flags; to do so, he uses the Wind Waker to adjust the direction of the Wind, so that it favors the motion of the nuts. The young hero must be careful, though, for giant, spiky plants will be blocking his way in each of the holes. Once Link completes all three of the holes, he can drop into the grotto at the end to fight one Winged Mothula and two wingless ones to obtain Treasure Chart #8.
A second Treasure Chart can be retrieved by gliding to the center of the island using the Deku Leaf. A Treasure Chest will be there containing Treasure Chart #28.
- Due to time constraints, the idea for Horseshoe Island was abandoned near the game's deadline. However, the developers entered their office one morning and were shocked to discover that Horseshoe Island had been fully programmed into the game unbeknownst to them. Eiji Aonuma, the game's director, theorized that somebody must have sneaked in after hours and built it themselves without anyone else knowing.
