Sump pump drain location

I currently having a sump pump discharge issue. The discharge has opened a 4 to 5 inch hole outside in the ground. Is there a way that I can make a french drain or a basin in the ground? Any ideas will help.

Howdy is this ho;le the end of the discharge pipe?
You can install a catch basin lots of types such as digging woun a hole 3' by 5' deep and fill with gravel. Or extend the pipe further to a street or curb depending on the slope and distance etc.
