    If what you're saying is whether your friends can play your map by subscribing on the workshop then yes- although it doesn't download to the tf folder.
    When the map downloads, it goes to:
    Steam> SteamApps> Workshop> Content> 440 (look through all the folders in there until you find the map).
    You can then copy and paste the map into tf> maps and then load it in TF2.​

    Yeah, I asked them to test it, and I'm pretty sure 90% of them can't extract filed

    Are they struggling to find the .bsp or struggling to load it once in TF2?

    Alternatively, they can put this in the console:
    map workshop/<NUMBERS IN URL OF MAP ON WORKSHOP>
    To see the the numbers, they need to have URL display option enabled in steam​
