The 2009 Duramed FUTURES Tour was a series of professional women's golf tournaments held from March through September 2009 in the United States. The FUTURES Tour is the second-tier women's professional golf tour in the United States and is the "official developmental tour" of the LPGA Tour. In 2009, total prize money on the Futures Tour was $1,795,000, the highest in the 29-year history of the Tour.

Leading money winners[edit]

The top ten money winners at the end of the season gained membership on the LPGA Tour for the 2010 season, with those finishing in the top five positions gaining higher priority for entry into events than those finishing in positions six through ten. Finishers in positions six through ten had the option to attend LPGA Qualifying School to try to improve their membership status for 2010.[1]
