I would say a well-bred show Golden should not be considered a lazy dog. They are still a sporting breed with exercise requirements. The breed itself is pretty easy to train.
A field dog will almost certainly have a higher threshold for exercise, which may manifest in a variety of ways. They are bred to work and work and work. This does not, however, mean they are any easier or harder to train. I think that depends on who is training the dog and what they want to achieve with the dog.

Some people do breed lazy dogs but that is not correct and I would not go into the breed expecting a low energy dog.
