I came here from Google. Updated for 1.8.3 (latest Go stable release):

wget https://storage.googleapis.com/golang/go1.8.3.linux-armv6l.tar.gz
sudo tar -C /usr/local -xzf go1.8.3.linux-armv6l.tar.gz

Then add:

export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/go/bin

To your ~/.profile file and it'll set it automatically on each login.

After installation do source .profile or reboot :)

If already installed golang with apt-get, then need:

sudo apt remove golang
sudo apt-get autoremove
source .profile # need first add "export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/go/bin:~/go/bin" to it

can you create independent /go/bin folders to link an entirely new project?
