<In what way does your code behave incorrectly? Include ALL error messages.>
Oops, try again. There was a problem with your syntax. AND SyntaxError: missing before statement

```

Replace this line with your code.
var answer = prompt(“What do you want to PLAY GOLF, or TAKE A WALK.”).toUpperCase();

switch (answer){
case’PLAY GOLF’:
var clubs = prompt(“Do you have golf clubs (YES or NO)?”).toUpperCase();
var shoes = prompt(“Do you have golf shoes (YES or NO)?”).toUpperCase();
if(clubs==‘YES’&&shoes==‘YES’) {
console.log(“GREAT! We can play a round of golf today!”);
} else {
console.log(“Sorry, you must have your own clubs and shoes. Maybe another time.”);
}
break;
case’TAKE A WALK’:
var water = prompt(“Do you have a water (YES or NO)?”).toUpperCase();
var hiking stick = prompt(“Do you have a hiking stick (YES or NO)?”)
.toUpperCase();
if(water==‘YES’||stick==‘YES’){
console.log(“Good, we can take a walk today.”);

    } else {
      console.log("To take a walk, you need a water bottle or a hiking stick.");
    }
break;
default: 
    console.log(I'm not sure what you are choosing.  Click "RUN" and select play golf or take a walk."); 
}
<do not remove the three backticks above>

@lodum

Surround what you put in parameter for console.log() with quotes

Hi and here

var hiking stick = prompt("Do you have a hiking stick (YES or NO)?")
            .toUpperCase();

Space arent’t allowe so you should remove the space between hiking and stick (_) also put the .toUpperCase() just after the )
