My 8 year old, who has a beautiful coat, just had the area just below where his collar sits in the middle of his back shaven on Monday. I thought is would be a small spot and it's a 4" square right in the center of his back. I about died! He had to have a spot removed and biopsied though, so the shaving was not even a question. Now I'm looking at staples and wondering how long it takes the long hair to grow back.

For a dog with long hair like a golden you can expect 5-6 months for it to fully match the surrounding coat.
