I would only use Go as an alternative to C or in some cases C++, as it is easier to deal with than those languages and can compete with their speed.
Otherwise I would never consider it.

My main reason is that its simplicity often forces over complicated solutions that can be pretty difficult to understand in reasonable time.

I would choose Rust as replacement for such cases as its much more memory safe and equally performant
