You can get started in three easy steps:

# 1. Install a package with repository for your system:
# On CentOS, install package centos-release-scl available in CentOS repository:
$ sudo yum install centos-release-scl

# On RHEL, enable RHSCL repository for you system:
$ sudo yum-config-manager --enable rhel-server-rhscl-7-rpms

# 2. Install the collection:
$ sudo yum install go-toolset-7

# 3. Start using software collections:
$ scl enable go-toolset-7 bash

At this point you should be able to use go and other tools just as a normal application. See examples bellow:

$ export GOPATH="$HOME/go"
$ mkdir -p "$GOPATH/src/hello" && cd $_
$ cat >hello.go <<'EOF'
package main
import "fmt"
func main() {
    fmt.Printf("Hello, World\n")
$ go build
$ ./hello

In order to view the individual components included in this collection, including additional development tools, you can run:

$ sudo yum list go-toolset-7\*

Go Toolset Software Collections as Docker Formatted Containers

On RHEL 7 you can pull the images with the following commands:

$ docker pull registry.access.redhat.com/devtools/go-toolset-7-rhel7

For more on the docker images follow the link to public source repository: https://github.com/sclorg/golang-container
