Recruited locally, Kol was played at Geelong Football League club Lara and the Geelong Under-19s before making it into the VFL seniors. He kicked 22 goals from 18 games in his debut season in 1983, to finish second behind Terry Bright in the club goal-kicking tables. His twin brother, Nigel Kol, was also at Geelong in 1983 but they would appear together just once, against Sydney at Kardinia Park in round eight.
From 1984 to 1986 he played less than half of Geelong's games but then had a strong season in 1987, when he made 16 appearances and averaged 20 disposals a game. He polled seven votes in the 1987 Brownlow Medal count, with all his votes coming in four consecutive rounds.
