It depends on how much it faints. If your Golbat faints a lot, its friendship will lower and it'll take longer to evolve. Using herbal medicines will also lower friendship. A Soothe Bell will increase friendship gained by 50%. So there would really be no way to tell when your Golbat will evolve since there is not a set number. There are many factors that play into the friendship of a Pokémon. Here's a resource about friendship in Pokémon: https://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Friendship
I hope this helped!!!

Golbat needs to gain 36 levels. (assuming your Golbat is always holding a soothe bell, not in a luxury ball, starts with 70 friendship, and changes friendship only by leveling up)

There are other ways to evolve it faster, such as vitamins and keeping it in your party when you take steps.
