I'd hedge the "should" to "it's preferable".
Not as important where there are multiple courses serving different skill levels, though still desirable if it can be done reasonably.
Stoney Hill is a poor example, in that it's a private, lightly-used course geared toward advanced players. But it's also instructive because many holes have no good place for red-level, or kids-level tees. I'd think some public courses, especially on very hilly land, have similar issues.
