How about going to a rescue or humane society and adopting a dog from there? Many shelters and rescues have employees who can match you up extremely well with a dog in their care regarding, exercise, grooming, personality etc. Even if your truly dead set on getting a Golden or some other purebred type dog there are breed specific rescues and you may even find one in a shelter.

If you're prepared for the grooming, Goldens are OK.

I love Labs. I do suggest considering adopting also, perhaps an older/mature trained dog.
