I don't see a spikestone golem, so I assume it's a spikestone guardian. If you stand your ground you won't have to worry about the spike aura if you don't move. Your golembane scarab should ignore its DR (since it looks like it's a golem). Hit it harder and more often than it hits you, but... it will probably outdamage you. Theoretically the cleric should be healing you while you do this, but that technically wouldn't be one-on-one.
This was my first thought...
You say the Cleric is afraid of it, does this impose the Frightened conditions on the Cleric?
Your partner should be able to fix themself whilst you fight the golem... which you might be able to stand toe to toe with for a little while.
If your Cleric can contribute at all, you might be able to beat it.
I purposely left out the Cleric when determining the 1 vs 1, because if you guys thought it was somewhat close, then I could easily say it would be worth standing my ground.I know our cleric, lvl 9, hasn't used any spells nor any channeling for the day, so as long as he grabbed some useful spells this should be somewhat doable.
Now, I can spend a couple turns buffing, but that would leave me open for a couple free attacks.
