You'll be better off keeping the clubs at home until the latter trip back. Some courses don't even open until mid-March.
As far as a flight, Boston Logan is an international airport. Glasgo Scotland is less than an hour farther flight than San Diego CA. Money no object? Anywhere in Fl or SC (3hrs).

Sean2 (one of our regular members here) is around the Boston area I think, he might be a good person to PM.

Last year you could have played nearly all season. I played in NH in January last year, and could have played nearly every weekend. This year, you could play this weekend. But those are unusual. Generally, golf around Boston in February and early March is either unpleasant or impossible. The most likely options for the truly hearty are to go down towards the Cape, as they usually get less snow accumulation. Personally, I'd probably prefer to go hit balls at a heated driving range or even go play on a simulator...but usually we northern New Englanders just go into hibernation for a few months.

Nothing is particularly predictable here as far as suitable weather for golf. I played in December and January last year as it was fairly dry. The main issue isn't whether it's nice enough to play but rather if there are any courses open. For example, it was plenty warm enough to play yesterday but I doubt there's anything near Boston that is still open. The only course that is reasonable close and open year-round is South Shore Country Club. It stays in fairly good shape through on and off snow and is the best bet for winter golf around here, as far as I've found. Most (all?) of the Plymouth courses are closed until March so to get any other options you have to drive to the Cape. It's worth it for a weekend but it's too far for a day trip unless you're really in need of a round. Rhode Island is another option but I don't know what's open or worth going to.
