    (a) Any board of park commissioners having the control or

for golf course purposes or separated from it by a river in a
non-home rule county with a population greater than 500,000 but

deemed necessary or useful for the purpose of that golf course,

interested may appear before the circuit court either in person
or by attorney when the application is made and object to the

property mentioned in the application, or any part thereof, be
sold and conveyed by the board of park commissioners upon such
terms and conditions as the court may think proper.
